“Makers of Fine Wands since 382 B.C,” Ollivander’s is a narrow and shabby little shop with a window display consisting of a single wand resting on a faded purple cushion. Inside the walls are lined floor to ceiling with thousands of narrow boxes, which Mr. Ollivander chooses from when trying to find a wand to match each customer (PS5). Ollivander’s closed in 1996 (HBP6) when Ollivander was kidnapped by Voldemort (DH5); it is unknown whether he re-opened the shop following Voldemort’s defeat two years later.
