The new location, located along the stretch of Wilshire Blvd known as the Miracle Mile, is four times larger than the Santa Monica location (now closed) that has served the preternatural and wizarding communities so well for six years. The two-tiered wizard’s marketplace, built with the help of Hollywood set designers, boasts stalls for apparel, books, haberdashery, paper & ink, curios, wands, candy and much more. Whimsic Alley also hosts stores featuring branded Harry Potter and Twilight merchandise.

Along with a magical shopping experience, the new Whimsic Alley now boasts a Great Hall for special occasions and events. The castle-themed Great Hall, complete with floating candles, secret passages, hidden doors and flame-bearing gargoyles can accommodate 100-150 guests.

Grand Opening activities begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday and will continue until 5 p.m. The LA Whimsic Alley is located at: 5464 Wilshire Blvd.
