Wiseacre’s is one of my favorite shops in Diagon Alley because of the way it’s decorated. From the outside, which is a beautiful blue with moon signs hanging above it and stars on the walls to the inside with its beautiful star ceiling and all the star gazing devices, this store makes you feel like you’re in another world. If you are someone who loves star gazing, the night sky, Astrology, or the color blue, this store is sure to make you happy!
Wiseacre’s has an interesting array of items for sale. So while the store itself has a theme, the items inside don’t have a theme. Personally, I don’t mind that because it makes shopping there more interesting.
In the display cases you can find jewelry, replicas, and some amazing prints from MinaLima. The Diagon Alley print is one of my favorites, but sadly isn’t within my price range! The prints for the covers of The Tales of Beedle the Bard and Fantastic Beasts are also stunning. Pictures honestly don’t do them justice! One of the coolest replicas in Wiseacre’s is of Gringotts Bank with the Ukranian Ironbelly on top of it. It is undeniably the most breaking part of Diagon Alley, so to have a statue for it that you can display in your home is amazing. If I ever hit the lottery or have the extra money to spend without giving myself a heart attack, I would definitely want to purchase it and display it in my home. But that is still a long time away!
I also really like the house crests door hangers they have in the store. However, I am disappointed that the Ravenclaw one has a raven on it and not an eagle! Seriously, is it so hard to put the correct mascot of house Ravenclaw on merchandise?! That little rant aside, the crest door hangers are incredible and I will eventually be purchasing one for my home.
Wiseacre’s also has an excellent selection of clothes and accessories. Pins, keychains, lanyards, umbrellas, scarves, hats, shirts, and more can all be purchased in this store. They are also one of the few stores that carries Butterbeer merchandise, which I really like. Thought the lighter color shirt would wash me out and it’s too hot for hoodies in Florida, I appreciate that they have merchandise for the Wizarding World’s most well-known drink! And their Christmas ornament selection is all year round and also really nice. So if you’re someone who’s thinking about Christmas months in advance, this shop is a great spot to help with that!
Overall, I love this shop. If I could make my future library/home office look like the inside of this store, I would be a very happy Ravenclaw! Though it’s not a big store, it is a beautiful one. If you ever get to visit Diagon Alley, definitely check this store out. Plus it’s attached to Scribbulus, which is my absolute favorite store in Diagon Alley, so it has that going for it as well!
Tell me your thought on Wiseacre’s! What would you purchase in Wiseacre’s? Or would you just stare in open mouth wonder at how beautiful it is? I would love to know! Have a magical week everyone!
