Harry Potter MotW #91

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a  meme hosted by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and Me @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.


If You Could Open a Shop on Diagon Alley, What Would It Be and Why?

Ollivander's



For a long time I've said that being a Wandmaker would be my dream job within the Wizarding World, so it stands to reason that if I could open up a store in Diagon Alley, it would be a wand shop. I would absolutely adore crafting and selling wands for bright young wizards and witches! And since Ollivander himself is pretty much retired by the end of the series, I might as well just reopen his shop and get going on that dream of mine. ;)

Don't forget to add your link below so we can all hop over!

  1. I hope you'd be in need of an apprentice! :)
    I'd also love to have a joke shop, a clothing shop, or a magical bakery! :D Anything really, as long as I'm part of the magical world ^^

    1. YES PLEASE^^ we'd make a GREAT team ;) But yeah, I feel the same way: ANYTHING would be a dream come true if it meant I was living in the Wizarding World ♥

  2. Oooo can I open a bookstore right next to you? Not a bookstore with scary books like in the forbidden section of Hogwarts' library, only with books where the characters can magically come to life. Then I'd stock it with all my favorite book boyfriends ;-)

    THINK OF THE FUN WE COULD HAVE MICHELINE!!!!

    1. JENNY! THIS^^ NEEDS TO HAPPEN!!! Your bookstore is like a dream come true, I'm already thinking which books I want to buy in your shop so my favorite characters can come to life :D Oh please open your store right next to mine, we're going to have the time of our lives! ♥

  3. Hmmm, I think I'd open a magic book store as well. Though I would refuse to stock whatever monster book Hagrid found entertaining

    1. Magical bookstores. THAT'S the dream! Oh and I don't blame you one bit - that thing was a nuisance O.O

  4. That's so cool! Can I come and work for you and help make wands?! :)

  5. I loved reading the parts with all the shops but I never thought of having one so this is a pretty fun MotW! I would definitely have to agree with you, I think Wandmaker would be an awesome job!

    1. Wandmaker is my total dream job but really I'd be happy just being in Diagon Alley XD

  6. Aww what an awesome pick! When I went to Universal Studios in Japan some time ago, in the Harry Potter area, the first shop I went into was Olivander's! And of course I got myself some wands. :)

    1. Thanks Aimee! I don't blame you one bit, that would have been my first stop too and I would have wanted ALL the WANDS :D

  7. Oh, a wand shop would be perfect! I always get the chills when I read or watch the scene where Harry steps into Ollivander's to buy his wand. And actually making the wands would be such an incredible experience and probably wouldn't seem like work at at all, unlike a lot of Muggle jobs, lol.

    1. LOL exactly^^ I always get chills in that moment too and since DH wand making has kind of become an obsession of mine. I can totally see myself reading ALL of the books on the subject and becoming a pro without it even feeling like any effort at all :D

  8. This is such a great choice! Everyone literally get's their wands from Ollivander's, it would be so sad if you didn't go through the tradition of the "wand choosing you!" ;)

    1. It would be very tragic indeed^^ Even if Ollivander hadn't retired I still would have begged him to take me on as his apprentice!

  9. omg this topic! So brilliant! Whoever it was who came up with this one - you or Leah - just brilliant :) This is also a topic that has a bunch of potentially brilliant options! Wand maker - FOR SURE. Also, I'd love to have a pet shop, book shop, basically any shop, just to work in Diagon Alley! But if I could be Florean Fortescue??! That might be the best option of all!

    1. LOL, the topics are all Leah and Ula's doing :) Wandmaker is my dream job but naturally owning a bookstore in Diagon Alley would also be THE DREAM. And a pet shop!! All of those owls and cats!! ♥ We could totally team up at running the bookstore and pet shop, and then I can manage the wand shop and you can take care of the ice cream shop ;)

  10. I think I would love to own the ice cream shop :D

    1. Ha! Well, you and Aylee can maybe team up together and co-own the thing :D Then you both can move in next door to my wand shop. THINK OF ALL THE FUN WE WOULD ALL HAVE!!

  11. This is such a great idea! You'd be a great Wandmaker and when you needed a break my coffee/tea and baked goods would be waiting for you next door!

    1. I have a feeling you would see a LOT of me Alex :D And YES PLEASE be next door to my shop!!

  12. That's fantastic! I think it would be so wonderful to be a part of that moment with the witch or wizard experiencing their wand choosing them for the first time and realizing that they are in fact part of the magical world. It would be amazing :D

    1. I agree Jaclyn! Especially that since DH, ALL of the wand lore just fascinate me. I'd be locked up in my shop for ages making up pretty new wands for all those young witches and wizards :D
