On my list of “needful things” are quite a few pieces of pop culture memoribilia–autographs, scripts, etc. Well, one of those needs was fulfilled this week!
I’m a huge fan of Harry Potter–I’ve read all the books (including the mini Tales of Beedle the Bard), seen all of the movies (and anxiously await the new one) and even own all the ones that are out on DVD already.
So you can imagine how pleased I was to learn that an old friend of mine works for Alivan’s–a company that sells all things Harry Potter. And when I say all things, I mean it! You can get books, robes, wands, brooms, even Bertie Bott’s Beans (not sure if they have the booger flavored ones from the books though).
Anyway, I got my own little piece of Harry Potter memorabilia delivered this week–a yew wand. Now, resist the temptation to call me a dork (I’ve already heard that this week). It’s really neat–I’m kind of amazed at the craftsmanship–each wand is hand made, and smooth as butter. The grain of the wood is really beautiful. It arrived at my office, and entertained all of us for a while.
So if you, or your little wizards, are fans of Harry Potter, I’d recommend checking out Alivan’s offerings, it’s really cool stuff!
