The House of MinaLima in London: original props from Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts

The House of MinaLima in London: original props from Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts

I have tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Only, they’re pretty useless until we reach November 29th… next year. Only then will the precious tickets take me to the most wanted play of our times (OK, may be exaggerating just a bit). So in the meantime, what one can do is of course go see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them or pop in the House of MinaLima in London. 

The House of MinaLima is the shop that Miraphora (Mina) and Eduardo (Lima) launched in 2001. But who are these people, are you probably wondering by now? I’ll tell you. They’re just the ones who designed the props used in Harry Potter movies. Some of these props can actually be seen in the shop and real fans can purchase reproductions of certain designs (including prints of the Daily Prophet covers or Harry’s admission letter). But really, and especially if your not too rich at the moment, it’s absolutely worth just walking around the shop to admire the beautiful rooms, obviously also decorated with the Harry Potter world theme – actually one will be opening on the 18th (yes, that’s right, that’s in two days) with a Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them decor. So I know I’m definitely going back after watching the movie, to see the new props. What about you?
