A Harry Potter-themed pop-up store inside a Lincoln charity shop opened its doors this week.
St Barnabas Hospice is selling official Harry Potter merchandise from its shop in the upper High Street from Friday up until the Christmas Market in December.
“The store has the normal stuff you’d expect like wands and scarves but then there’s stuff you will have never seen before” – Hannah Brown
Official mugs, keyrings, notebooks, decorative boxes, street signs, wands and replica broomsticks of the Nimbus 2000 and Firebolt are on sale on Lincoln’s High Street.
Hannah Brown, the Social Secretary of the Harry Potter society at the University of Lincoln, has already visited the store to check it out.
“The store has the normal stuff you’d expect like wands and scarves but then there’s stuff you will have never seen before. They have a Firebolt broomstick which is wonderful. There’s also a patronus which lights up a canvas with effects. It’s good because they have stuff from all four houses, whereas if you go to studio tours, you usually just get Griffindor and Slytherin things,” she said.
“I’ve already seen people from the Harry Potter society around the store, and this shop will definitely grab the interest of everyone in the society.
“This Lincolnshire-based shop is raising money for the St Barnabas Hospice so that they can help care for people around the county.”
St Barnabas Hospice are urging Harry Potter fans to come from far and wide to visit this shop and help to raise some much needed money for hospice care in Lincolnshire.
