The Boy Who Lived has Grown Up! Calling all Harry Potter fans! CELEBRATE THE NEW HARRY POTTER BOOK
J.K. Rowling has penned a play about Harry Potter as an adult, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which has just opened to great acclaim in London and is being released in book form here in the US. And then this fall there's the movie of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them starring Eddie Redmayne to look forward to.
Are you planning a celebration? A script-reading? Visit the Emporium this weekend -- it's the next best thing to Honeydukes! Celebrate the new book, by stocking up on Butterbeer; Bertie Botts' Every Flavour Jellybeans; Chocolate Frogs; Jelly Slugs, a pair of authorized Harry Potter spectacles; your own "Mad Eye Moody eyeball (as pictured), or some new Harry Potter-themed colouring books.

Things are hopping with another Potter too...
July 28 marks the 150th birthday of Peter Rabbit's author and creator, Beatrix Potter! It's an exciting year for fans of this Miss Potter, as this fall there's a new book coming, "The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots"- a previously unpublished Potter story written 100 years ago.
We can't wait! But while we count the days, we have books, plush toys, puzzles, children's china by Wedgewood, & other uncommonly good, classic Peter Rabbit-themed gifts at our store.
