The fairies aren’t the only ones to put on a show this time of year at Gardner Village. Our locally-owned shops come dressed to the nines in fairy fanciness!
It’s a beautiful time to take in the sites and even get ideas to apply at home. Plus, you never know who you might spot while shopping!
If it’s activities you seek, look no further. Our small business owners are so creative and have prepared all sorts of fairy fun at their stores. We’ve put together a sampling of what you can expect below. For more on the Woodland Fairy Festival, click here.
CHOCOLATE COVERED WAGON
Fairies, look for the bear necessities at Chocolate Covered Wagon. What are they? FREE candy, of course! The shop’s smiling mascot and his fairy friend can be found outside the doors, handing out pixie sticks (naturally!) every Saturday around noon during the Woodland Fairy Festival.
What happens when you spin fairy dust? Cotton candy! Look for the freshly spun sugar every Saturday around high noon. (Pssst… If you’re lucky, you might even catch the added treat of the cute confectioners dancing as they spin.)
What time is it? Story time! Take a seat outside Storybook Nook every Saturday around 1:00 and unwind those wings with a relaxing story.
SPOILED ROTTEN CHILDREN’S BOUTIQUE
This divine children’s store is more than the spot where the weekly fairy parade assembles (Saturdays at noon through June 18) and the place to shop for the finest in fairy fashion. It’s also where to go when you want to craft your own beaded bracelet accessory.
Find the make-and-take craft table located outside the shop on Saturdays around noon.
SEVEN GABLES MERCANTILE
If all of this fairy talk leaves you wanting to take some of the whimsy home with you, plan on a stop at Seven Gables Mercantile, where you can create your own fairy garden.
Fancy a some fairy tea? They’ve got you covered. Call the store to reserve your spot at their fairy tea party.
THE CRYSTAL FAIRY
If anyone knows fairies, it's our friends at The Crystal Fairy. Stop by to hear a rich fairy history. You can even create a Fairy Offering Bag while you're there. What is this bag? You'll have to stop for more on this fascinating fairy folklore!
Discover even more fairy findings inside!
Any day is a beautiful day to visit the rescued animals at The Farm, but a visit on Saturdays during the Woodland Fairy Festival can prove extra enchanting. The occupants are certainly on point.
THE ART COTTAGE
For the finest in face paint, The Art Cottage has you covered. Every Saturday throughout the festival, you can allow the experts to put on your face and complete your fairy fashion statement.
A GREAT ESCAPE
Fancy a challenge? The whole fairy family will enjoy this seasonal escape room, here for a limited time. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to solve the puzzles and set the fairy free before she takes flight for another season.
