Harry Potter 5th Birthday Party - Part 1

Hello fellow geeks!


We hope you are all doing well and keeping safe. It's now the Summer holidays and the shop is in full swing again - it's been so nice to see people out and about again after so many quiet months and shop closures.


As it's the Summer holidays, that can only mean one thing - our annual shop birthday party! Every year we host a fun day dedicated to Harry Potter, with fancy dress, shopping and cake (ob...viously) and this year was extra special. We just started our brand new shop lease meaning we will be in Skipton for (at least) five more year - and that's all down to you! Our wonderful customers who support us.


This year we we brought back our Harry Potter interviews for our customers which will be featured all this week right here on the blog.


Shall we jump straight in and meet our first fans? Today we meet Karen and Hayley who are huge Harry Potter fans and brought their build-a-bear teddies with them!
