Quite possibly America’s only Fairy Garden store – I can’t find any other brick and mortar store in my google searches. You’ll have to come and join us!! Lol! The Fairy Godmother (aka Shirley) is the sweetest shop-owner and she’s always prepared with a bit of fairy dust too. The Fairy Store is at 2202 84th St S, Lakewood, WA 98499, 20 minutes from Seattle, just past Tacoma, 2 minutes from I5. It is super-easy to find, you can see it from the highway and lots of free parking!

We will be making the same miniature garden shown above. It can be indoors (with plenty of indirect light) or outdoors!

Reserve your spot today. Register at The Fairy Store: (253) 584-9761. (First class is at 10:30, when that fills up we will add a second class in the afternoon.)

There will be more of everything for sale – it’s a fairy store, after all. Fairy houses, fairy accessories miniature and full-sized, fairy costumes, games, puzzles, the Gardening in Miniature: Create Your Own Tiny Living World book ;o), and just about everything to do with fairies.

Steve and I will be bringing our true miniature trees and plants, plus our unique patio and pathway materials from our online store too. Come and join us!
