Default Street Vendors


Though numerous street peddlers line the streets of Diagon Alley, customers would be wise to be wary of them. Any number of items can be found hawked on the streets daily, many useless and some illegal. One might be able to buy a cheaper wand, running the risk of it exploding during use. Bottoms have been known to fall out of the defective cauldrons bought from one of the carts. Not all is bad, though. Discounted jewelry can be bought, though the gold or gems may not be pure. One some days, a hag comes through with a cart of wind-chimes, some proclaimed to warn of burglars. Often, knick-knacks and small décor can be found in various carts. Be warned, though – sometimes the items being sold have been stolen from others.

Beyond item hawkers, various stalls are set up selling street food. Try a Cauldron Bread (a bread bowl carved out with soup or chowder served inside), stop by and grab some skewers/kebabs to go, hit up the Confetti Popcorn (the fizzy popcorn is supposedly made with real Muggle soda and fizzes in your mouth; dill pickle flavored even crunches like a pickle; berry flavored popcorn actually has dried cranberries, which goes well with the raspberry, blackberry and strawberry flavored popcorn). If you’re looking for a quick snack, the streets have enough.

She still had a mountain of shopping to do if she planned on staying at the Leaky Cauldron and leaving behind most of her clothes at the manor, and clearly she was nowhere near done. The former Slytherin absently noted that pressing crowd that was growing as she approached the area around the street vendors. She glanced to her left and looked at a stall with oddly mixed and matched knick-knacks. 'Huh, those are pretty' She thought to herself.
Truth be told, Nicola hadn't been to Diagon Alley in a long time. Ever since her graduation from Hogwarts, she had mostly integrated herself into the Muggle world the day she entered her fancy arts university and has never really looked back. Her only connections to the magical world at this point were her friends and, well, her obvious magical status. It wasn't too hard handling the best of both worlds, being a muggleborn herself. If she could find supplies in Muggle London, then there was no need for a visit to the alley.

Except today, she was in need of pet supplies. Obviously for pets that are non-existent to the Muggle world. It was no bother though, as Nicola liked finding a reason to go around, but she had always been the type to get easily distracted. Like right now, she was curiously looking at the dill pickle flavoured popcorn in display. Did they always have those here? She then paused at the next stall with such a wide array of jewelry and little decors. Is that a gem? "Do you think those are real?" Nicola asked, to nobody in particular at first, but she then turned to the other girl at her side.

Milo said goodbye to his parents; they were off to have a drink at the Leaky Cauldron while he finished shopping for supplies. He waved as they departed and then ambled slowly, almost lazily down the street. His eyes were glued to everything. Though he'd been to Diagon Alley many times before, he never got tired of it. There was always something to do, something to see. Something to eat. Speaking of food, he caught the aroma of street kebabs and popcorn, and he turned eagerly towards the vendors. He'd get a skewer to enjoy while he finished his shopping.

He dug around in his pockets and brought out some sickles to pay the vendor in exchange for a sizzling skewer stuffed with kebab meat. Just the smell of it was making his mouth water. As he enjoyed his food, his eyes scanned the crowd, looking for anything, or anyone, interesting.

Well, she'd landed her dream job and now Sookie supposed it was time to try to fall in love with the area surrounding it. That, plus there was some things she wanted to take a look at that she'd been hearing about - but first... food. She always had a special spot for Street vendor food, having frequented what was around often when she spent her breaks back in Korea with her family. Was she expecting to find fish cakes in the middle of Diagon Alley? No, not particularly. But she was hoping to find some other local delicacies.

Which.. the first thing that drew her attention was a popcorn stand. The flavors listed were... interesting, and while her nose wrinkled in the assumption that it probably wouldn't taste good.. she was still rather curious to be able to say she'd tried pickle popcorn and it's endearing alliteration. Ordering herself some, Sookie strode away from the stall in search of somewhere to perch while she pecked away at her food. She wasn't in too terrible of a hurry, as the smell alone had her questioning if this was a good idea.

Spotting a bench, she sat herself down, crossing her legs one of the other and fixing the skirt of the dress her sister had designed for her. Picking up one piece of popcorn, she raised it to her lips before losing her grip on it. No sooner had she dropped it, a pigeon came to attempt to carry it off which had Sookie instantly on her feet. "Shoo, no!" Most flavored popcorn wasn't good for scavenger birds, so she'd rather not risk that this one might be if it could be helped. She stood, flapping her arms like crazy at the bird trying to get it to fly off which... was entirely not working.

"Hey! Scram!" And there he was, all black pants and shirt boldly proclaiming his appreciation of the band CATS LAUGHING. Calling out, Damian did what the woman's gesticulating could not, and gained the bird's attention. "Shoo is his brother. This is Scram, and he's supposed to be on a diet."

With a coo, and a sprinkle of seeds, the unspeakable got the pigeon to approach him. "Son of Sir Skyrat, and Lady That's-My-Pretzel." He added with a self-aware laugh.

"And I am Damian Pendragon. Pickle popcorn? An agreeably alliterative appetizer." Damian punctuated his introduction to Sookie with a flourish and bow. Though casual by nature, his proper upbringing presented itself on occasion.

The loud yell behind her certainly caught Sookie's attention, as she spun to see a man with rather interesting attire. Interesting only in the fact the shirt appeared to be some sort of band tee, though for a band she had never heard of. Unsurprising really, considering she was not much a music fan. Her knowledge began and ended with her nephews albums, and even then that was out of love and not true appreciation. At his words, she moved her eyes from the shirt and to his face and... blinked. Did he just say... they had names?

Not the most socially adept, she was quite perplexed on if this man before her was making a joke... or if these birds were in fact his and he'd named them all. Which, A+ for creativity if he had. They were rather good scavenger names. And even if they weren't... well then she'd give him the same rating for wit. "Are they all... yours?" Direct seemed a safer way to inquire than anything else. And if they WERE, well then she had a very important question.

How did one put a pigeon on a diet?

"Ah, it's a pleasure to meet you Damian. My name is Sookie." She found the more English version of her name was far easier of an introduction for others, despite preferring being called her surname or her full name Ho-sook. "The name is quite alluring. I'm not quite sure I'm sold on how tasty it'll be." Truthfully, it really did smell foul to her.

"Mine?" Damian gave a small laugh as he knelt near the pigeon. "Scram and I are just friends." So, what, he's friends with pigeons. Nothing wrong with that. "You know, pigeons were first introduced to Diagon Alley by Barnalby the Strange. They were really well-trained birds until they got a taste of discarded sweets. Used to fly formations around the alleyway, and all that. Now they just beg for pickle popcorn." Subtlety, he slipped a small scrap of paper underneath a band on the birds leg before standing back up.

"Don't go leaving me in suspense now." Damian's eyes moved from Sookie to the bag she held. "What's the verdict on the pickle popcorn?" He held out a thumb, alternating between a thumbs up and a thumbs down. The antici


pation was palpable.
