There have been mystical goings on at Wilton Shopping Village ever since December when Eire Fairies joined our growing band of independent shop owners. They’ve been delighting the young and the young at heart ever since, with everything a fairy fanatic could ever need, including the sale of original Irish Fairy Doors.
We had never heard of Fairy Doors before, so we sent our Marketing Manager, Phil Maclean and his daughter Poppy, to discover the mini-phenomenon for ourselves.
Poppy, like most young children, has a vivid imagination, as soon she clapped eyes on the box, with all its colour and magic, she was hooked.
The premise is very simple, Wooden Irish fairy doors, created in Ireland and sprinkled with real magic, ready for your fairy to move in! All you need to do is believe!
We spent a good hour or so of daddy & daughter time, reading the Fairy Welcome Guide and getting to know how we make the most of our fairy. We picked a good spot in the lounge and placed the door next to the skirting board, all ready for the morning.
Poppy is a light sleeper, so from a parental point of view I love the aspect of the fairy doors encouraging children to stay asleep, otherwise, your fairy won't visit you!
As predicted, Poppy was very excited the following morning, rushing in to ask if she could go downstairs to check if her fairy had visited us through the night! It was the next best thing to Christmas morning seeing the delight on her face as she spotted the mini key had indeed been used, and that her fairy had helped herself to some of Mummy's rather delicious Lindt dark chocolate (its a delicious blend of silky dark chocolate enhanced with just a touch of fine crystals of hand harvested sea salt.....ahem!!)
It has provides great value, as we have already been online to discover you can register your fairy, receive regular updates and find out all about Fairy Valley from The Original Irish Fairy Doors Company.
Eire Fairies is a labyrinth of all things fairies, not just the Fairy Doors, highly recommended to pay them a visit. You can find them next to the river at the entrance of the Courtyard here at Wilton Shopping Village - you can't miss them!
You can follow them online via their Facebook page here www.facebook.com
Poppy (and the whole family) are very much Fairy believers now, thanks to Eire Fairies!
