My twelve year-old sister made more convincing wands in her summer camp's arts and craft hour. The owners are vicious bullies who routinely make rude comments about customers with disabilities and special needs, and they apparently have a strong disdain for Vermonters, if you were to believe the words of Mr. "Wynott" the wand maker.

We stopped into Wynotts Wands and bought wands and then stepped next door into this shop for some wonderful Butter Beer

This is a great store in Salem for all the Potterheads out there, including myself! Although I wanted to buy the whole store, I bought a scarf with all the house crests on it that I am very happy with! However, it was very crowded since I went in October.

Awesome Store!!! Everything a Harry Potter fan could want & more! T-shirts, several different books, collectibles, even Chocolate Frogs! I could spend an hour looking at everything! My daughters enjoyed the experience. We want to go back again & again!

Not serious at all, but so much fun! A small but fun stock, ice cold butter-beer, and "real" quiditch brooms! Prices cheap enough that you can definitely afford a wand. A quick and fun stop.

If you're a Harry Potter fan and are in the market for a new wand, this is your huckleberry. Wand shop and potter merch galore. Tim the owner is very nice and always willing to talk. Samantha is very kind so stop by muggles and see if your Hogwarts letter arrived.

It's like walking into a dream. I was in the military and married my husband from here, and the first time my mother came to see me we went exploring and found this shop. They have posters, cloths, aprons, Wands books, butter beer, really anything harry potter that you can imagine. It's truly an amazing shop and I love the... More

Harry Potter memorabilia that sums it up. I was in awe when we walked in. The staff was fantastic. And they have an abundance of potter merchandise for all of us potter nerds!!!! I'd love to relocate here and get a job!!!
