Scrivenshaft's Quill Shop is a writing supplies store in Hogsmeade set up by Scrivenshaft. It sells various quills, parchment and stationery needed for students at Hogwarts. The shop stock includes stationery such as rainbow ink and extra-large quills. However, students usually prefer to visit Zonko's Joke Shop or Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes when it comes to buying special quills such as joke quills and sugar quills. Scrivenshaft's is visited by Hermione Granger on at least one occasion when she wants to purchase a new quill.

Etymology

'Scriven' may be a play on the Welsh word 'ysgrifenu', meaning 'writing'. 'Shaft's' may refer to the part of a pen, pencil or quill.
