FanAddicts! is a new reality series on REELZ that features collectors who go beyond the realm of the merely enthusiastic. When these FanAddicts start collecting items from a franchise, they just never want to stop. Wednesday night's premiere episode will feature Steve Petrick, the Guinness World Record holder for the largest collection of Harry Potter memorabilia. And while there are plenty of great officially licensed Harry Potter items — this Gryffindor Snuggy-type item being near the top of our list — we also really love the stuff that the fans of the series make. Granted, it's not what most collectors are looking for, but it's stuff that will lift the heart of any Potter fan.
A couple of years ago, we made a list of the best hand-made Harry Potter items, and after checking out Etsy again, it turns out that the fans of the franchise get increasingly more creative and artistic as time goes on. Though the series is over, it’s clear that fans’ passion for the franchise has remained strong. So here are our new favorite items made by and for Potterphiles. Check them out and watch some scenes from the Harry Potter episode of FanAddicts! right here. MORE >>
