WARNING-1,000 item count break-out so please let it load :p

I've *finished* the Alley SMILEY I love this one so much and I hope everyone enjoys it too! Item count got me in the end, but I think the feeling come across in each shop. I'm happy I did get to include this much in the exhibit though with minimal pruning :p I tried to keep everything pretty eclectic, which was hard for me :p I encourage everyone to stop by. This post was going to be really long, so I couldn't include shots of everything or how the items in each shop are labeled for sale etc..

Thank you to Twinklin for the idea on the 2-piece registers you used in your Frostfell shopping plaza. You'll see I used them throughout. Also to Wynndi for the umbrell idea used in her Maj'dul house, they went perfect at the ice cream shop. Also to Bovvered, I borrowed your blender idea that I saw in your mum's Halas house for the ice cream shop. And finally to Mistal, who's awesome break-out Frostfell village with shops first inspired me to even think about doing something like this in the first place SMILEY

And to everyone who I bumped into the past couple days while you were touring as I finishing this, thank you again for all of the nice compliments SMILEY

Entering the Alley

Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment

Inside the shop, lots of cauldrons for sale

Mr. Mulpepper's Apothecary

Inside the apothecary shop. All different ingredients are labeled for easy purchase.

Eeylop's Owl Emporium

Inside the owl shop. All it needs are Owl plushies! hehe

Quality Quidditch Supplies

Inside quidditch shop. Items ranging from broom servicing kits, to brooms and game robes, books, and ball sets.

Madam Malkin's Robes For All Occasions

Inside robe shop. Tried to display house colors and 1 plain black student robe.

other side of robe shop

Flourish & Blotts

inside bookstore. Books on tables are categorized and titled. Some areas have item representation for easy browsing in the shop.

other side of bookstore

Madam Primpernelle's Beautifying Potions

inside beauty shop

The Daily Prophet headquarters

inside the newspaper headquarters. Table to letters to the editor and information.

Magical Menagerie

inside the pet shop

I also fit in a little break-off to represent Knockturn Alley and put in Borgin & Burkes. Since item count was so close, this one is lacking the most inside SMILEY

Borgin & Burkes

Ollivander's

inside Ollivander's

Weasley's Wizard Wheezes

I really like how the store fronts are all differnt and match the theme of the store pretty cool.  I see how this would really run up the item count.  I would have loved to see what you would have done with burgen on borkes if you had more item count availible.  We need more expanders maybe LON could get one as a loot card.

Looks great!  I love the outside umbrellas. 

Would you mind sharing (or anyone else offer suggestions) how you made the sink faucets?  I am stumped and can't make ones that look good at all.

Really terrific design!

My favorite is the Weasley's Shop... The Jester above the door was genius!

Those are actually just kegs sunken back into the wall with the premade spicket sticking out. Small Weathered Keg I believe it is.

And thank you all for the compliments SMILEY

I saw this the other day while touring, though apparently you've 'finished' it since then.  I'm glad to see the book shelves inside Olivander's.  It was barren when I stopped in and made me a sad fae since that's probably the one most who visit will be really familiar with.  Tipping the bookshelves on their side to simulate wand boxes was a good idea.  Bravisimo.

Thanks! I was stumped for a while on what to do to simulate "thousands of small boxes stacked". I opted for this as opposed to crafting 1,000's of notebooks and using their spines hehe I'd like to add a bit more in this shop actually. It's not as untidy as I'd like, but I needed to wait and go back with a fresh eye to ook at if there are an hidden items I can remove from count to do so :p

And Gracey "How do you find time to finish so many projects?" - I think I don't sleep as mch as I probablly should! LOL

This is probably the most impressive project I have seen yet.  The detail and accuracy is amazing!  I can't wait to see what you add to the Potter Collection next.

Wow this is so very cool.  I'm gonna have to come see in person.  I can't take all the credit for the umbrellas, one of my guildies actually did it first, but I'm glad you could use the idea! Love it all, very authentic...Great job!

Finally got to visit last eve, and my little Ratfink is still holed out there in the back alley. Going to go back in and take in more details.

The books are fabulous. In the library, there were so many fascinations.. And I loved that there was an opening for a job at one of the shops. Made me giggle.

Great imagination, or even the use of the info from all that is HP! KUDOS!

I'd love to think I was that creative, but alas it wasn't my idea. It was an actual referenced ad taken out in The Daily Prophet :p I did spend about as much time re-reading the series and taking notes for these different projects and watching the movies again while taking notes as I did building it though hehe

And thank you all for the kind words. It really means a lot to me! I really haven't been decorating very long. I've played the game since launch (except 2 years gone for Vanguard), but all I used to do was raid/group.I'm definately still learning as I go. I've had some great teachers though!! *nudges Gracey and Jaz*
