What's new at eFairies?
We want to share our latest adventure with our supporters! eFairies.com has partnered with Parents and FamilyCircle magazine! Here is a little video that highlights what we do best...Fairies!
Fairy Business August 13 2014
Fairies like to be rewarded for the assistance they provide humans in their daily endeavors. When contemplating a fairy offering, it’s the thought that counts…sort of. Fairies definitely have their preferences as the giftee; food and drink are a favorite, as well as beads, gems and anything that sparkles. An exceptional seashell or a unique rock is also things they may covet. But what they like best are FAIRY COINS.
What is a Fairy Coin? The Tooth Fairy and crew are constantly presenting us with human coins in exchange for baby teeth. Fairy Coins are what WE can offer the fae in exchange for their acts of kindness and deeds well done.
Here at eFairies we have a lovely, new grouping of fairy coins called The Trilogy Collection. These three hand-forged coins each feature a unique aspect of “fairy business” embodied in a special fairy. Cherish is there to care for the human and represent the virtues of the Fairy Godmother. Chloe signifies the magic and wonder of Mother Nature. Calista is symbolic of the beauty of fairies, from the inside out.
These collector’s fairy coins come packaged in a magical chest, which also contain detailed descriptions and poems about each individual fairy. Present them to a special Godmother, human or fairy. Leave them as an offering outside a fairy door. Trade them with fairy-loving friends. Keep them in a special place, such as on your nightstand, to attract fairies into your dreams.
Fairy coins are tokens of gratitude gifted to magical beings that help and protect us -- but they also bring good fortune to those who share them with the fae…so share away!

April showers bring May flowers! May 01 2014
April showers bring May flowers! We have plenty of items to help decorate both indoor and out!
Our garden statues are perfect for ledges by the water feature or on a garden wall. All of our smaller trinkets are perfect to help the Easter Bunny stuff eggs to hide for the children (and some adults!).
Happy St. Patrick’s Day March 13 2014
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Did you wake up feeling lucky? If not no worries, efairies.com has you covered! We have plenty of gold fairy dust to stamp or sprinkle on with a star wand applicator. Our great selection of wands will keep bad luck at bay with a flick or a wave. We even have one with fairy dust for a touch of sparkle.
Try and find the pot of gold, if you do will you share? Check out the mountain o’splendor this leprechaun has discovered. This grinning guy is available in a greeting card or magnet. We’d also like to welcome six charming fellows to our Garden Statues: Old Tom, Good Robert, Pat Murphy, Paddy, Michael, and Mr. Kevin. Do you think one will lead the way to a pot of gold? Don’t blink or you might end up being lost with their tom foolery! These tricky fellows will leave you staring at a tree in a mystical place with a leprechaun door and an emerald cluster shinning right in your eyes!
If your day is feeling like a washout because of the rain, don’t forget we have adorable rain gear for ages 1-6. We all want to splash in puddles and chase the rainbow when the clouds break.
In lieu of the rain, maybe your indoor fairy garden is starting to look a bit greener for spring; our Celtic stepping stones are a great addition for a fairy walkway or path. We also have a great variety of Celtic CD’s if you like music while you work, create, or commute.
Don’t forget we have My Little Kitchen Fairies; one is even dressed in her St. Patrick’s Day best. She’d look so cute on your desk, or make a great addition to your on-going collection.
As the day comes to a close the fairies can toast with our shamrock tea set, or pewter beer mugs (for those fairies that like a fun fete).
We hope you made it through your day without a pinch or a poke, but maybe they didn’t see the green piggy paint! Happy St. Patrick’s Day and we wish you the best!
Valentine’s Day Greetings! February 13 2014
Roses are red, violets are blue, and nothing says love like a fairy gift from me to you.
All year long the fairies demonstrate the importance of sharing, passion, love, kindness, caring, and respect. All of these things we tend to forget with the responsibilities of everyday life.
Share a wonderful thought with a close friend or loved one, or start a new project you’ve always been passionate about. Maybe start that fairy garden you’ve been thinking of. Or peek at some of our puzzles that your could work on with someone special.
Spread kindness with someone who is having a difficult day. We have a great selection of notecards, a perfect way to reach out and brighten someone's day.
Show you care by helping someone in need, or giving someone a pick-me-up. We have plenty of fun activities and games to work on together.
Most importantly don’t forget to respect those in our lives that mean the most, we often take things for granted. Nothing says I love you like ordering that special item they’ve had on their wish list for months!
We know Valentine’s is just another calendar day, but take advantage of the opportunity to say I love you to those who matter most.
2014 has arrived! January 01 2014
The New Year has arrived! Now is the time for resolutions and a fresh start. We put our best foot forward and use all our knowledge from past years to absorb and gain new knowledge to help us grow and understand what 2014 has in store.
As our schedules return to normal and the children return to school, we find it difficult to stay focused! We have a great assortment of books and puzzles that spark our imaginations but still keep us in line with the task at hand!
Create a fun game for the resolutions you've laid out. Each time you complete a resolution, purchase a piece to add to your existing fairy garden, or the one you've been thinking of building! We have a wide selection of accessories to create anything you can imagine. Just because you've grown up doesn't mean you need to stop dreaming or creating! Fun is for everyone, big or small!
As the year unfolds the fairies remind us to rejoice and appreciate blessing both big and small. We have an assortment of great cards if someone you know needs a little encouragement or a friendly note. Powered with a little bit of fairy dust it will be sure to put a smile on their face.
Here is to the New Year! From our store to your door we wish you a pleasant start to the year, and may all your wishes come true in 2014!

We truly love the holidays and the joy the season brings! From our store to your door we wish you a happy and safe holiday season!Good tidings to all, and to all, farewell…. for now!
The Gift of Giving November 15 2013
The gift of giving is from the heart and no dollar amount can be put on it. The fairies have set a good example for us to model after, following in their thankful and giving ways.
You can even bake up a storm with your little fairies at home with easy recipes from the “Fairies Cookbook”.
Life lessons that we’ve learned from our fairy friends and mentors include helping others in any way we can. We can help create a fairy garden using ideas from “Fairy Gardening” Tools are available and many faux flowers.
Spend time with loved ones, friends, and maybe a fairy or two. Together we can make a difference, even if it’s time spent on simple things. Share a special moment and work on an assortment of activities: coloring books, books of all kinds, puzzles, or any of our crafts!
MERMAID MADNESS! September 03 2013
It’s true that eFairies has everything fairy, from throw blankets and jewelry to costumes, calendars, and figurines. But we also carry merchandise featuring other magical creatures such as gnomes, unicorns and, most recently, mermaids. Mermaids are fairies of the sea. They are playful, inquisitive, and very industrious. Just as fairies are caretakers of garden and forest, mermaids are keepers of the oceans and waterways – protectors of all life aquatic.
The Walt Disney Company made fairies and mermaids superstars when they animated Peter Pan’s Tinkerbell and Hans Christian Anderson’s Little Mermaid, Ariel. Ariel made scores of little girls aspire to growing fins and a tale, and become half fish. After movies, series, and a marketing blitzkrieg featuring Ariel and her pals of the sea, mermaids are still hot, hot, hot!
In honor of Mermaid Madness, eFairies would like to feature The Mermaid’s Treasure, the definitive book about mer people, written and illustrated by Stephanie True Peters, a “true” mermaid aficionado. It’s part activity book, part treasure trove of mermaid trivia. From touring a mermaid’s castle, to learning about marine mammals, it’s full of fun and facts regarding life under the sea.
There’s The Wave Fairy Door , the only entrance into the mermaid-infested waters of the Kingdom of Fairyland. Physically off limits to humans, all you need is a vivid imagination to explore this fascinating realm of the deep. We have artist Amy Brown’s wondrous take on the mermaid culture with figurines Obsidian Pool Diva, Pearl Diva I Fairy Diva Mermaid, and Fairy Diva Water. And there’s the cheery Mermaid Fairy Bracelet, a bauble that is perfect for mermaids, or young fans of mermaids.
Mermaids and fairies make enchanting pairings, bringing magic to what lies above and beneath the sea. eFairies is proud to support Mermaid Madness!, and hope you’ll check out these extraordinary swimmers on our website.
LIGHTS! FAIRIES! ACTION! August 08 2013
Ambiance is all about setting the mood, and proper lighting is a sure way to achieve it. From cheerful and fun, to warm and cozy, eFairies’ fairy lights can help create many a desired atmosphere. And like moths to a flame, the right lights may attract a few new fairy friends in the process.
With the days getting longer and the evenings getting warmer, it’s a good time to add some twinkle to twilight….or more glimmer to those Midsummer parties. eFairies suggests Fantasia Fairy Lights , 91 white or colored LED lights, to accentuate trellis, tree branches, or arbors. Your backyard will turn into one big fairyland, and fae folk will assume it’s an open invitation to come join the fun.
We have a variety of colorful orbs that emulate the moon and sun in the “glow factor” department. The Rainbow Orb and Fairy Berries come in many sizes, a variety of colors, and are perfect accents for lawns, gardens, centerpieces, fountains, swimming pools, or ponds. The Underwater Fairy Tea Light gives a bewitching fairy effect to flower arrangements, and wherever else it is submerged. (Beware: Fairies are naturally drawn to the bright orbs, and love to redecorate with them.)
Solar lights capture the energy of the sun and throw it back out to illuminate the darkness. Solar Light Fairies Ponderer and Frolicker are two samples of solar statuettes eFairies carries for yard or garden. Fairies are fairly good at maneuvering in the dark, but having solar lights accessible makes their work and play that much easier.
Fairy lights can also mean rest and relaxation. With Story Fairy Lithopane Fairies, engraved porcelain virtually comes to life when illuminated from behind. These nightlights, as well as bedside illuminators like the Daisy Fairy Lamp, are comforting to children as they drift to sleep.
So…Lights! Fairies! Action! Bring on the ambiance by letting eFairies shed some stylish fairy light on and in your home or garden.
Fairy Gardening – Create YOUR own fairy garden! July 28 2013
Creating a fairy garden is not rocket science, but it does involve some research and planning in order to achieve the desired results. FAIRY GARDENING, Creating Your Own Magical Miniature Garden, written by Julie Bawden-Davis and Beverly Turner, and GARDENING in MINIATURE, Create Your Own Tiny Living World, by Janit Calvo are great reference books available here at eFairies.com. They’re full of helpful hints on how to select, plant, and stage a relaxing, beautiful setting where fairies can follow their passion, or simply hang out.
According to Bawden-Davis and Turner, you need to follow a few simple steps when designing and planting a fairy garden. These include choosing the perfect container, selecting a theme, creating a focal point, planting perfect pint-sized plants, and decorating with appropriately scaled accessories. Following these steps will help create an intriguing visual story for your new magical world.
Suspension Bridge is just what every fairy garden needs to help the fairies and gnomes cross those difficult paths whether it be a stream of water, or a ditch.
Of course, adorable flower fairies and accessories make the garden an open invitation for all fairies to come join the fun. eFairies has hundreds of miniature accessories to add personality to your garden. We carry landscaping materials, pixie sized plants and pots, animal figurines, bird baths, wishing wells, tables and chairs, and just about anything else needed to accent the very best fairy gardens. These fixtures and figurines also come in a variety of sizes to fit the proportions of your design, an important aspect of creating a well-balanced garden.
Fairy gardens can differ greatly, but all are steeped in an aura of enchantment and magic. For their diminutive size, fairy gardens can have a wonderfully dramatic impact at minimal cost, are space savers, and require marginal maintenance. But most importantly, fairy gardens offer a hobby that can be shared with children, grand children, or with your own inner child.
