For the last several years I have been taking the children to visit the Fairy Folk Christmas Market every year.
The market happens in early November for a single weekend, inside a house with an exquisite garden. Stalls display anything from second-hand knick-knacks, precious jewellery and amazing glass art beads, hand-made and not-so-handmade stylish Christmas decorations; second-hand books, clothes, there are activities for the children (last year there was face painting and sand painting), and the place is looked after by Fairy Folk.
There is a lovely tea garden which gets very busy, in a corner under a lapa. And in the house, except for tables upon tables of Christmas gifts, gift ideas, delicacies and deco, there is an entire room dedicated to children, fairy tales, fairy dust, costumes, colouring books and toys, etc.
This year I’m going to be one of the stall holders, displaying P’kaboo’s reads and our music. If the weather holds, I’ll be outside; otherwise inside, at the entrance to the fairy room.
I have pictures of the Fairy Folk fair last year, but I can’t find them! Would love to give you a glimpse into their magical garden.
