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

My daughter is a big Harry Potter fan. She was really excited to see this shop. Unfortunately, the wands were expensive. It looked like a simple one started at $25 while they had fancy ones into the hundreds. Thankfully, there was a more reasonable place...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!
