Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

Bunny Devon for Anne Devon. My fair lady of the night
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Alternative Locations on the High Street

Below, find a list of additional shops and other locations on the High Street for your posting needs! Those who have won “location listing” as a contest prize should contact a member of staff to have their location added.

The Apothecary


A beacon to any potioneer or herbalist. The Apothecary is a fascinating shop crammed with all sorts of interesting things. There are barrels of slimy stuff lined up on the floor and jars of all sorts of powders, herbs, and the like along the walls. Bundles of feathers, fangs, and claws hang from the ceiling. The whole place smells very bad, a mixture of bad eggs and rotten cabbage. It is open daily, though sees reduced hours on the week-end.

Asphodel Cemetery


Named for the asphodel flowers that grow wild around the tombstones, Asphodel Cemetery is a quiet and mysterious place when the sun is shining. In the evening, it's been rumored to be haunted by the most terrifying ghosts who howl and whine throughout the late hours. Those who visit at night have been said to have never been the same - some say cursed, some say terrified into craziness and others say it's unexplainable. It is tucked away on a hill that overlooks the village of Hogsmeade. The graves are new, with the oldest being only a decade old. It can be reached by following the Highstreet along the outskirts of Wellingtonshire, and then taking the North or South Widowsvale road uphill.

Beautiful Beast Boutique


Freshly built in Hogsmeade in the spring of 1882, the boutique is continually increasing the stock of magical animals that they provide to the town. It is tucked away at the end of High Street in a small two story building. It is cluttered with cages that encase noisy animals. The only attempt of tidiness that can be seen is a stack of shelves near the back that hold books dictating the care of certain species and bottles of medicine for the different animals. There are many ordinary species available for sale as well as not-so ordinary including (but not limited to): cats of all colors, dogs, toads, extremely intelligent rats, poisonous snails, garden gnomes, the occasional ghoul, exotic birds and kneazels. The shop is closed on Wednesdays for the processing of new stock, and also Sundays.

de Montfault Theatre


The de Montfault Theater is a grand building reached by sweeping spiral staircase. The interior is all elegant columns, delicately painted walls, and elegant scallops. Private boxes are available at a premium, for the night or for the season, as well as balcony and floor seating. The ceiling features a grand chandelier, and both operas and plays are presented for the enjoyment of the people of Hogsmeade.

Denbright’s Emporium of Wonderful Things


A large, brightly lit shop, Denbright’s Emporium gives off a sense of cheerfulness and childish wonder. The shop is packed with toys of every description, from enchanted versions of muggle toys to the purely magical, including toy versions of brooms, wands, crystal balls, and cauldrons. The staff are often equipped with roller skates, and with the air filled with hot air balloons, flying toy dragons and winged horses, the whole shop teeters on the edge of chaos. Shoppers are advised to be wary of the enchanted wooden T-Rex skeleton ‘Buster’ who enjoys making a bid for freedom as much as his fanged-frisbee.

Dervish & Banges


Sells and repairs magical equipment and accessories, such as sneakoscopes. It is small in size but neatly organized. A bit dim due to there only being one window which is located at the front of the store, it might take one a while to find what they are searching for.

Excalibur


A gentlemen's club restricted to those under the age of thirty. Excalibur is one of the larger club buildings in size, with fifty rooms available to rent weekly or monthly—though it does not accommodate valets and the like. It boasts two dining rooms—one members-only and one admitting guests—as well as a ballroom in which monthly dances are held that the gentlemen might interact more with the opposite sex. It is staffed entirely by house elves. Other amenities include a reading room, a lounge, two billiard rooms, a basement wrestling room, and a rooftop tennis court.

Gladrags Wizardwear


A clothing shop that also has branches in London and Paris, Gladrags boasts a higher price point than its local competition, though the service is often considered to be less intimate.

Hogsmeade Constabulary


The center for policing in the village, the local constables deal with evening disturbances, petty grievances, local patrols, and minor break-ins. Though technically overseen by the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, they are their own entity. The station itself is modest in size with two holding cells adjacent to a room off desks for the constables, as well as a small office for the Chief Constable. At least one constable is always on premises, and a secretary can be found during daytime hours as well.

Honeyduke’s Sweet Shop


A bright and colorful shop that sells magical sweets. They make their own fudge and chocolate that has become renowned throughout the wizarding world.

The Magical Equity Club


A gentlemen's club known for its liberal leanings. The club is small in size, with only a dozen rooms available to rent (daily and weekly). It boasts a public lecture hall, a dining room, a billiards room, a small rear garden, and a lounge. Its staff is exclusively human.

Merlin's


A gentlemen's club catering to the middle classes. Merlin's has two-dozen rooms available for members to rent weekly or monthly, with six additional rooms reserved for stays of three days or less. Though it lacks a formal dining room, its lounge does offer table service and light meals. It also has a billiards room, a reading room, and a tennis court in the basement. It is staffed by humans only.

Ollivander’s Wands


"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.

Owl Emporium


Dimly lit and small in size, the only sunlight is let in through small squared windows that border the ceiling of the shop as well as the store's display window. It advertises various breeds of owls for the lowest price in Hogsmeade. An iron gate splits the room in half, with owl treats, cages and other accessories one side while the other half holds owls of all colors and sizes.

Hogsmeade Post Office


Small but brightly lit, at least three hundred owls at any given time sit and wait to deliver messages. The fowl are all sizes, from large to small. They are also color coded depending on how quickly one wants their message delivered.

Quality Quidditch Supplies


A narrow, deep store, neatly organized with rows of various Quidditch supplies, from the latest safety equipment, a range of broomsticks in various price ranges, standard game balls, and practice sets. The front windows contain mannequins modelling the latest equipment, and rotate colors to match the most recent professional Quidditch victories. The shop is closed on Sundays.

Scrivenshaft’s Quill Shop


Small and compact, Scrivenshaft's sells quills and stationary. It also has a catalog one can look at if they want to order something custom made.

Silverwand Cauldrons


A large shop that is decorated in an old-fashioned way, it sells cauldrons of all types as well as miscellaneous school supplies.

Twilfit & Tattings


A large and brightly lit shop that sells handmade robes and wizard clothing.

Whizzhard Books


The largest bookstore in town, it boasts two full floors of books covering any subject imaginable. A few areas have comfortable sofas and chairs to sit on to encourage customers to read a bit of their book before buying. It is warmly lit and has a cozy atmosphere.
