Harry Potter book promotions

In 2007 and 2003 We worked with the Canadian publisher of the Harry Potter series, Raincoast Books, to produce a total of 300 full sized brooms and 500 miniature brooms for marketing of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The brooms were made using Forest Stewardship Approved handles from the Harrop-Procter community forest to promote the fact that the Canadian Edition of the books were printed on ancient forest friendly, recycled paper.

These brooms were similar to the rustic round Untrimmed brooms in our catalogue. 10 of the brooms had copper enameled lightning bolts attached to them. The lightning bolts were produced by our neighbor Helene of Fireworks Copper & Glass.

We spent much of the summer in 2004 making a variety of prototypes and creating a final product for use in the Bewitched movie. We had a lot of fun with this project, and also made approximately 40 brooms in the Spring of 2005 after filming was complete, which were used to promote the movie.
