What's next? Miniature Honeyduke's Sweet Shop Items!

Harry Potter fans all over the world are getting ready for the last installment of our beloved series.  This really gets me because my children have grown up watching these films, they have grown up right alongside Harry, Ron, and Hermione.  In honor of the final film and years worth of loving these movies I'm planning a series of Harry Potter themed items.  Right now I have these two pieces:

which have a slightly worn or rustic, comfortable feel to them-which I think lends itself well to the feel of a wizarding shop.  Like a comfortable old leather chair in a study, they just feel like they fit.  Even the colors are right to me.  I would have changed them if I didn't feel like they were exactly right for what I'm doing with them.  The most I may do is blacken a few corners or areas of them.  But not much because I feel they are well suited to the theme the way they are.

I'm doing my homework on Honeydukes candies and it looks like a long list of them.  But I have a few I know   I'll be making:
Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans
Acid Pops
Canary Creams
Chocolate bars
Chocolate Frogs
Here's one I made previously and it was so darn tiny you wouldn't believe it!

That's a toothpick beside it :)  And a Dumbledore card.
Back to my candies:
cockroach clusters :)  YUCK!
Droobles Best Blowing Gum
Fizzing Whizbees
Jelly Slugs
Licorice Wands
Cauldron Cakes
Pumpkin Pasties
and possibly a few drinks like butterbeer and pumpkin juice :)  We'll see!  I am so excited!
