<![CDATA[New Fairies and Upcoming Shows]]>Tue, 01 Oct 2013 03:13:08 GMThttp://fiercefairies.com/blog/new-fairies-and-upcoming-showsPicture



Hi' fairy fans throughout the world. Look for Fierce Fairies at our last 2 shows of the year, the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival, October 19th and 20th, and the Harvest Festival in San Mateo, November 15th -17th. Of course the Pumpkin Festival makes everyone think about Halloween, so we've been busy crafting more of our smaller Pixelles, and the bigger fairies too.
 
 
Our latest innovation is an attached, but inconspicuous, loop so that customers have the option to hang their fairies on walls or doors.The loop idea started with a fairy, 5 years ago now, to hang in a child's bedroom out of reach of sticky fingers! For whatever reason we didn't do this again until a customer, at this year's Los Gatos show, wanted a fairy to hang in her bathroom. 'Bubbles' got a loop!

Next came the Tooth Fairy to live in a dental office where counter space was at a premium, so she got a loop too. That's when a light bulb lit up in our brains, mainly for the Halloween Pixelles, but this week the new 'Trickster' and 'Treats' will be getting them too.

So future generations of fairy collectors and museums will no doubt refer to this as 'Fierce Fairies' 'loop period'. Fairies with loops will be accurately dated as late '2013 onwards'! Looking forward to seeing you at the shows. - Jenny -

<![CDATA[Mountain View]]>Fri, 10 May 2013 21:30:11 GMThttp://fiercefairies.com/blog/mountain-viewPicture

It was a fun weekend at Mountain View's Art a la Carte! Thanks to those hardy souls who braved the heat on Saturday and those that braved the wind on Sunday. If we had sold fans on saturday and allergy meds on sunday we would be rich.

We met lots of really fun and interesting people and introduced our Pixelles and greeting cards (more on those items later). After sneaking in a few recovery days we are back at it.

We got lots of interest in classes and are hard at work planning the schedule. We will email the lovely folks who gave us contact information. 

Next show is the Los Altos Wine and Arts Festival on July 13 & 14. This is a really fun show and we hope to see lots of new and repeat visitors.

We've applied for 4 shows in the South Bay area (Silicon Valley) and we'll let you know as soon as we do, where we'll be. We switch between wild optimism (and panic at overcommitting ourselves) and the depths of despair (that no one will want us).
