Requires World Adventures, Ambitions, Generations and Showtime EP´s
Build with patch 1.33

Size: 20x14
Lot type: Community (nectary)
Price: furnished 99 954 / unfurnished 37 198



Honeydukes is a sweetshop located in Hogsmeade, a wizarding village from Harry Potter books and movies. It's a favorite shopping place of students and teachers alike. The shop is filled with many types of sweets and there is a secret passageway to Hogwarts castle in the cellar.



To make the shop as realistic as possible I have added the Gumball machine and Ice Cream maker (from the Store) and some great edible pastries from Around the Sims – you can find some in a chest near the cash register. Neither of these items is strictly necessary. If you don't want to use them / can't afford them your sims will still enjoy visiting the shop because it's a nectary too! You can harvest grapes just outside the shop. The nectar makers were both upgraded.
The well in the basement is connected to Hogwarts Castle from vssdgames's world . (If you use another Hogwarts simply change the names of the wells in the build mode.)

EA Store items:
Winter Feast Buffet table (free)
Crystal Pumpkin Candlelight (free)
Specter Sweets and Deathly Decadence from this set (free)
Thanksgiving Pumpkin Plant and Wall Shelf from this set (free)

Gumball Machine (premium)
Ice Cream Maker (premium)

Haute Hacienda Spice Rack (25 points)
Edwardian Expression Kitchen Gelatin (25 points)
Edwardian Expression Kitchen Server Stand (25 points)

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is such a cute build, the colours are lovely and - even though I don't recall this shop from the Harry Potter movies - I think you did a great job in rebuilding it for the Sims 3. I love the whole look of it. Very vell done!

edit: ... and btw: I've just logged in to MTS to leave a comment for this lovely Sweetshop and Nectary.

Thanks! I am glad you like it.

The shop was in The Prisoner of Azkaban movie. (The comparison picture is from Harry Potter Theme Park.)

This is just amazingly gorgeous. I had all those crappy statues I didn't have any idea what to do with and I was never going to buy some of the items from the Store in your shop, but I love your shop so much, I just might go shopping. Thank you for sharing this. EA should thank you also.
