You guys know how much I love Harry Potter and, if you’ve seen a few of my gift guides, you’ll know I love trying to show off some of my favourite Etsy finds. I love how talented people can be so when I heard that there was going to be a Harry Potter shop called Punnydukes opening in Matlock…I had to go there!
I first heard of Katie Abey through her hilarious designs on Etsy and literally fell in love with them! They always brought a smile to my face especially with her sarcastic quotes such as her ‘I Love You More Than Cats‘ card or her Hufflepugs!
Literally had no clue that she was opening a specific fandom shop until I saw a few of my Harry Potter friends being invited to a VIP event. Unfortunately I couldn’t go (I did get an invite!) so I waited until I knew I would have plenty of time to go.
That day was this week and I literally in awe from the very first step through the Dumbledoor! (One of her puns hence why it’s called Punnydukes! Haha!)
The first person I met was Natalie (who was the sweetest and most patient person to put up with this weird little fangirl) and the Lord of the Rings music! Yes, this shop literally plays different nerdy music such as Disney, Harry Potter and more!
What is super cool about this shop (other than the fact that it has cool music and makes you feel as if you’ve somehow walked into Luna Lovegood’s mind) is that it sells designs and merchandise from other Etsy people! What a brilliant way of discovering artists! I saw so many fandom prints, pins, mugs and everything else you could think! It’s safe to say that my bank will be broken soon when I go back to visit and buy everything possible!
Oh oh oh! If you spend over £10 in the shop, then you get given a gem to put into your House hourglass (just like Hogwarts). Not to be a big-headed Hufflepuff but we’ve won twice so bring it on everyone! Punnydukes knows what we like!
Have a bit of a potty mouth and like designs with a few rude words? Head into the little room with a lot of Katie’s fun designs! My favourites have to be the Honest Rainbow Cats and the Bohemian Catsody!
If you want more of Katie’s designs and you can’t visit Derbyshire right now, then you have her Etsy shop at the beginning and she also has a few of books you can buy: We Eat Bananas and We Wear Pants!
Have you ever visited an independent Harry Potter shop? If not, tell me your best fandom pun!
