We received a few tips about the Santa Monica departure/Miracle Mile arrival of Whimsical Alley, a store devoted to all things Harry Potter. Apparently, the store will be taking over two store fronts, ostensibly to accommodate Twilight merchandise. The store's site confirms Whimsical Alley will reopen next month at 5464 Wilshire Blvd. [Racked Inbox]
