I recently found a Fluffy (the 3 headed dog) figurine in a boutique in Albany, NY. I wasn't looking for mini's, but I found him, and he was only $8 so I bought him for my Harry Potter bookstore. . .
Then the house started talking to me again.
Before I knew it, I was purchasing a Hagrid doll on Ebay.
Now, since I have Hagrid, Fluffy and a griffon (although it doesn't quite look like Buckbeak), the house is telling me that hagrid and his pets need a little area outside the shoppe, like a pumpkin patch with a firepit, where Hagrid can relax with some butterbeer and spend time with his pets. . .
And last night I was watching Memoirs of a Geisha, and my little Japanese tea house started talking, saying it needs a proper roof (which I'm working on) but it also needed a new piece of furniture, so once again I cruised Ebay and found a beautiful black, lacquered chest of drawers with a mirror (so the geishas can check their outfits before they venture out for a night). . .
I love when they speak to me, but it usually means I end up spending money!
