As the Harry Potter franchise celebrates its 20th Birthday this year, we thought it would be nice to reflect on the impact that JK Rowlings tales of magic and wonder has had on the Muggle world since its humble beginnings in a small cafe, and in particular some of the spectacular products which have spawned from the series.
As well as inspiring a generation of readers and fueling the imaginations of children and adults world wide, Harry Potter is one of the most recognizable franchises the world has ever seen. Seven books, eight Films and a theme park later, the legend of Harry Potter lives on, with a fan base, which retains as much energy and enthusiasm as it ever has.
Etsy is a digital market place, where talented crafters sell an endless range of imaginative, vintage and unique products, which are hard to come by on the high street. But how does this relate to Harry Potter?
Well, a simple search for the term Harry Potter on the site returns over 65,000 results, with a range of products about as diverse and imaginative as the world of Harry Potter itself. From hand crafted Bath Bombs, inspired by the various Hogwarts houses, to intricately carved wands which wouldn’t look out of place on the shelves of Olivanders, here eight of the coolest Harry Potter Potter products that can be found on Etsy!
