Hello there!
This lot was meant to be my telescope shop, but as I commented on my journal, sims can't use telescopes in community and therefore these don't appear in the catalog!
So there won't be a telescope shop, I'm sorry(I've done some changes in the DA map so you see the new display). I haven't found any mod that allows sims to use the telescopes in community lots . If you find one, tell me please!

So, here is Madam Malkin's, and this time there's no cc by me as we already had a wonderful shopsign (maxis recolor) that can be found on a site that can't be named in here as it's considered a pay site (though not all the items are pay, the shopsign is free, of course )
We also have Lethe_s' shopsign for Madam Malkin's shop, it's part of the occult shop set and its mesh is the one I use to create my Diagon Alley shopsigns.

Below it's a very romantic square surrounded by arches and balconies where you can deliver your sims on a romantic date, (maybe ron - hermione or lily - james?). CC is by Vitasims, and it's a wonderful victorian themed cc (I highly recommend you to download the whole of it)

CC not included and neccesary for the lot to work:

Have fun and tell me if you want me to build Weasley Wizarding Wheezes on my Journal !

thank you gizmo! I've just finished Ollivander's and I'll be uploading it soon. It's my fave one in the Diagon Alley so far.

By the way, for those ones who usually download my stuff, know that I've just installed my BV, so for now on you'll need this EP to download my lots

I just wanted to let you know that I was having trouble on Aussie Top Enders in downloading the Giant Oleander. I keep getting an error. Great work on your Diagon Alley lots!

Hey, nevermind about the mesh for the Giant Oleander. They have a new mesh for it, it can now be found under new meshes on the second page instead of the gardening page. The same thing with the giant bougainvillea from one of the other Diagon Alley sets.

ok but that's not the new mesh, but the old one . Just follow the link and scroll down the page until you find ''Older Gardening'' and then click on the name of the download.
enjoy, and thanks
