A Festive Welcome Back to Fairy Letters

We can’t wait to welcome back Fairy Letters once again to our fair, they joined us in the summer and last Christmas and customers fell in love with their super cute and detailed fairy letters! They couldn’t be more suited for our fair, and they make the perfect stocking fillers or gifts- personalised hand written letters from the fairies with lots of love!

Remind us about you and what you create?

I pop down to Brighton from London with bundles of handmade Fairy things. These included miniature, personalized fairy and elf letters, feather headbands, magic wands writing sets, wish jars, heart garlands and jewelry.

If you would like anything personalized in advance please send me an e-mail (fairyletters@strawbug.com) and will have them ready for you to pick up on the day. Can hide in a paper bag so little ones don’t guess what is inside!

Will you be selling some special festive creations?

We have limited edition stocking fillers including unicorn and fairy bracelets, thank you letter sets (1st place they will be sold!) and of course our Christmas special elf letters.

Will you be taking part in any other fairs over the Christmas period?

The Fairy Tale Fair is the only fair we are going to but we do take custom orders and sell through etsy.

You have previously taken part in The Fairy Tale Fair. Did you enjoy the day?

I love coming to the Fairy Tale Fair, the atmosphere is brilliant and the face painting is second to none.

What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?

In ‘real life!’ I work as a designer and design researcher which I love but am hoping the fairy business will continue to expand.

Anyone for Face painting!?

We are pleased to announce Carol, of Sparkles Face Painting, will be joining us once again for The Fairy Tale Fair. At each of our fairs she has impressed children and parents alike with her amazing, detailed, colourful face painting full of sparkle.


We hear so many great comments about her face painting- often ‘the best face painting we’ve ever seen’! She usually has a que all day so arrive with plenty of time, take a ticket, then have a browse of the craft stalls while you wait!




Carol really helps bring the fairy tales to life and makes the day extra magical! It’s not just for kids either, many of the stall holders and parents also get involved!
