Are you a fan of the Harry Potter books or movie series (or both)? SHS Junior Lauren Voyles is knitting and selling Hogwarts House-themed scarves. Voyles is selling scarves for each of the four Houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.
You can purchase a scarf for any House. If you are a member of the O.W.L Club, then you already know what House you are in. If you have not been placed in a Hogwarts House, you could just choose to purchase a scarf of the House you like the most. It seems that Gryffindor is the most popular House for scarves.
The scarves have long stripes in the House colors and are over 60” inches long, with fringes on the ends. The colors of the scarves will follow the colors mentioned in the books, instead of the movie colors. This means the Slytherin scarf is silver and green instead of white and green, and the Ravenclaw scarves are bronze and blue, instead of silver and blue. But if you want your scarf to be in the movie colors, you can request it. Each scarf is $10. If you want to get your scarf sooner, you should request it before Winter Break. Voyles will also be selling matching hats as well. Hats are $7 individually, but you can buy a scarf and hat bundle for $15.
If you are a fan of Harry Potter or you have a friend or family member who loves the series, order a Hogwarts House scarf and/or hat from Lauren Voyles as soon as you can. You don’t have to pay until you get your scarf or hat. If you would like to get your scarf before Winter Break to give as a gift and you were not one of the first ones to order it, you can pay $2 to set your scarf and/or hat as top priority.
If you are interested in buying a scarf or hat, you can contact Lauren Voyles at school or on Facebook. A fast reply is not guaranteed if you contact her via Facebook. She will also answer any questions you may have.
