Bookworms in London probably already know this – but for those who don’t, the Primark on Oxford Street now has a special section of the shop decorated and dedicated to Harry Potter!
I had to go to see…and did, of course, end up buying some Harry Potter merchandise!
If anyone knows where I could get some potion bottle fairy lights, please point me in the right direction – every Primark I have been in has sold out!
If you are a Gryffindor or a Slytherin, you are in luck – there is tonnes of stuff for you! Even Hufflepuff is pretty well-represented.
Ravenclaw, on the other hand, was sorely lacking. I’m not sure if that is because of lack of demand, or because all of the clever Ravenclaws have already swooped in and bought everything!
Apologies for the quality of the photos – really needed to put my flash on as it was a bit dim inside, but it is a very bright flash with lots of people around so felt a bit too self-conscious!
If you are ever in London and are a Harry Poter fan, it is definitely worth a visit, particularly as so many of the prices are really quite cheap, especially when compared to some of the prices you might pay in the studios. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean you can buy everything without racking up an impressive bill!
Honestly, I would have bought more if some of what I had been hoping to get had been in stock but I ended up getting a Hogwarts satchel (£12) and ‘I’d rather be at Hogwarts’ pyjamas (£12). I particularly like the satchel because it looks just like an ordinary schoolbag or handbag, until you look closely at the Hogwarts crest. This means I can use it most days, give a gentle nod to some much-loved books and connect with other Potterheads when they spot it!
In previous trips to other Primarks I had bought the cauldron mug (£5), which I love! I also got the door hanger saying ‘Muggleworthy’ , the street signs saying locations in the books, Quidditch tracksuit bottoms, a T-shirt saying ‘I solemnly swear I am up to no good’ and some socks showing the four different houses.
Someday I will have to get all my Harry Potter merchandise in one place to photograph it…though it might be scary how much there is!
