The shop is very authentically themed as was the sales clerk. Felt very "Harry Potterish". A lot of fun and they let you handle everything and even take pictures.

Not sure why all the other reviews are Harry Potter based because this store had the wands crafted. They aren’t Harry Potter wands. Yes they sell a couple but the main point of this place is the hand made wands. Happy with my unicorn wand...More

The actual Potter store is a few shops down, I think, but this shop genuinely looks like something right out of Harry Potter. I bought a handmade wand for my little Potterhead, and the lovely lady at the front (owner?) told me all about how...More

I’ve been in this shop every time I go to Salem. The wands are beautifully crafted and the staff is absolutely charming. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, it’s a must on the list of places to stop.

Walked in here. Did we fall into a Harry Potter story? Literally, looks like the wand shop in Harry Potter. Old, dim lit shop with leaning dusty shelfs that reach the ceiling. Wooden ladders line against the shelfs for the shop keeper to climb up...More

We went in and though it's heavily influenced by Ollivander's from Harry Potter it was a pleasant place with a very positive vibe to it. The lady there was cheeful and lots of fun to talk to.

A charming, magical little shop with the nicest staff. When our 5 year old informed the woman at the shop that she didn't have any money to buy a wand, she kindly said "Well I am just so happy you came to visit me today!",...More

They varied in price. I purchased two nice ones for my little girls for $25/each. That was middle of the road in price. Pretty reasonable for something crafted onsite. I think you will enjoy your visit!
