This large, dimly lit wizard shop is full of items that most self respecting wizards or witches would never desire to own. A few long shelves along one wall contain a collection of skulls Remarkable amongst these are the skull of a troll, the skull of a wolf (with a sign stating its a werewolf skull), one of a giant and various human skulls as well. Another series of shelves are filled with human bones and spiky, rusty instruments hang from the ceiling. In one corner a black cabinet stands with its doors firmly tied shut, a sign hanging from the rope which reads, "Crushing Cabinet, Handle with Extreme Care" while in another corner a glass display case holds a withered human hand resting on a dusty purple cushion. Under the glass counter next to the register a sparkling opal necklace has another caution sign, "Cursed Necklace: Has claimed the life of 14 Muggles to date" and next to it sits a glass eyes, gleaming with hidden malice. Next to the eye is a small tiered display case holding little crystal bottles filled with a variety of different poisons. Even during the day sunlight seems to have trouble penetrating into this shop, forcing the need to use lamps to augment the illumination.
