Amazing place to visit and the man that took care of us (I think he is the owner) was sooo welcoming and awesome! We had free butter beer and really made the store come to live showing us what they have. It almost felt like I was a student at Hogwarts getting ready to start! Lol a must see store!!!

Truly a magical place, and a must-see for any Harry Potter fan! We had an incredible time celebrating my daughter's 7th birthday- from the sorting ceremony to the potions class- it felt like we were at Hogwarts! Wonderfully kind and patient staff, amazing merchandise, fun photo props, and so many magical touches throughout the store. Highly recommend a visit!!

Just got Home from having my daughter’s ninth birthday party at Oliver’s Wands and Wizarding Wares... It was amazing! Lady Tara & Mr. Frank made the experience true to Hogwarts and for most of the time, it felt like we were really there! An amazing store and an outstanding birthday experience!

Stepping into Oliver’s Wands & Wizarding Wares was like taking a port key into a magical realm! I actually lost track of time as if I were in the land of Fey while I roamed and explored the beauty of this shop! Hands Down the BEST local shop for all things Potter - I cannot wait to go back!! But that’s not all!!! The Tea Room transported me to an English estate where it was easy to imagine myself having a cuppa with the queen! Descending the staircase, lined with a treasure trove of herbs, I was led to the secret chamber where Witches gather! More than just a store....Oliver’s Wands & Wizarding Wares is an Experience!!! Knowledgeable, Friendly Owners put the cherry on the top! I highly recommend this lovely shop!!!!

The girls got a HUGE kick out of the fact that it seemed so small and unassuming from the outside and was “Sooo much bigger than we thought...”. Classic Potter fashion.

Huge thank you to lady Tara and mr. Frank for making February break the best experience in Harry Potter and wizardry for a very enthusiastic fan. We can’t wait for April and to be a second year student! We loved every single moment of camp this week!!

Fantastic little place, with a wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff, and suprisingly great prices.

I think it’s also important to mention the kind hearts these two have! I was there when some young high schoolers journied in to ask for community support. Lady T was asked for a donation of some sort. Immediately she jumped to offer a basket and showed the girls what they could expect. Her kind and loving ways don’t stop there. My children visit frequently as they love this magical stop. She never forgets to spend an extra moment with them telling them how great they are and showing them the new magical changes that have happened in the store since their last visit. Make sure you visit this magical place you won’t regret it!!

What a magical experience this quaint little store is. An amazing experience to merely walk in, let alone fully immersing yourself in all this place has to offer. Came in for Cards Against Muggles, and I am sure that I will be a regular. If you have ever thought about stopping in but haven’t had the chance yet, DO NOT MISS OUT AND GO EXPERIENCE THIS LITTLE SLICE OF WIZARD HEAVEN!

Oliver’s is True magic. Walk into Diagon Alley and imagine the possibilities. Lady T welcomes you with open arms with endless opportunities. My son had his 7th Birthday here with potions class, party supplies, HP candy, and so much more... My son was thrilled to be sorted! Who needs Chuck E Cheese my kids choose Oliver’s and so do we EVERYTIME!!
