"'Pincushion' Pygmy Puff Extricated from No-Maj Haberdashery"; The New York Ghost, 28 November 1926.

A haberdashery was a store that dealt in ribbons, buttons, thread, needles and similar sewing goods.[1]

It was reported in the 28 November 1926 issue of The New York Ghost that a Pygmy Puff that had been mistaken for a pincushion had been rescued from a No-Maj haberdashery [2] but since the Pygmy Puffs are bred by Fred and George Weasley[3] they were not supposed to exist at that time especially since it was ban to breed magical creatures in New York at the time.[4]
