I don’t leave home without my Hogwarts House Pins.

Being a huge fan of the Harry Potter books i treasure my Hogwarts House Pins and when I go travelling I can’t leave them at home for fear of them being stolen.

 

Unless you’ve been hiding under a wumping willow for the last ten years, you can’t have escaped the Harry Potter phenomenon. Well, with the final movie bringing the franchise to a close and Ms. Rowling insisting she’ll never write about the Potterverse again, there’s nothing more to get excited about… right?

 

Not at all! Because behind the scenes the people responsible for the props and sets have been busy getting them ready for us muggles to enjoy! Take these Hogwarts House Pins, for instance.

 

 

Displayed in a beautiful presentation box, the collection features a pin badge for each of the Hogwarts House emblems (Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, and Slytherin) and Hogwarts crest itself. A must for any fan of the Potter books, or anyone wanting a slice of the movie magic, this immaculate, hand-finished set makes a great gift.
