Remember the scene from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets where Harry uses floo powder for the first time but instead of landing in Diagon Alley he turns up in Knockturn Alley? The store he landed in was called Borgin and Burkes and with this set you get to see how Lego envisioned this store that specializes in dark magic.
This set is full of wonderfully creepy items and tons of details. First, there is the fireplace that Harry came from that is connected to the Floo Network (that's the building on the far left in the left image). You can put Harry in a hidden compartment then pull out a piece and watch as Harry goes flying into the store!
Then there is the store itself. It is jam packed with goodies, including creepy heads, the Hand of Glory (those of you who have read the books will know what this is), and a jar with brains in it.
Borgin and Burkes is a store that no respectable wizard would find himself in. Yet when Harry ends up there he sees Draco Malfoy and Lucius Malfoy shopping there (the Malfoys were there in the book but not the movie). Why would Lucius Malfoy be shopping in a place so clearly full of dark magical objects?

Do you live outside the United States?
Although some items on Amazon can be shipped world wide, you will probably have the best luck with eBay and Etsy. Click here to see how to know if an item from those three sites can be shipped outside the U.S.A., as well as how you can buy items found and have them shipped to you even if the store you buy from doesn't ship to your country.(Clicking this will open a new window so you won't lose the page you are currently on.)
