Naturally, being a bookstore, Flourish & Blotts needs a counter for visitors to adopt books from.
The middle shelf is filled with notebooks, because using parchment all the time seems a bit ridiculous to me. Besides, there might be Muggle-borns who visit and just want notebooks for schoolwork.
The bottom shelf lifts out (once the textbooks are removed!) to reveal storage for the display book covers. I’m quite happy with this, as it’s completely inconspicuous until you know about it. I suppose that means a spy could hide something important in here…
I also made a little cash register with a tiny keyboard. That keyboard nearly made me go cross-eyed!
I might still make a freestanding bookshelf for the store, and I have ideas about a possible reading nook too, with a similar atmosphere to the Gryffindor common room.
And of course, more books are always in need. 😀
Anyways, see ya!
