Welcome to the Faerie Market!

Tee hee people! You've found the faerie market, and that's the hardest part. So, come along and never fear- Tink's got your back from what we hear ; ) ~ Fae



Hello dearies, and welcome to the faerie market. Just a few things you need to know...

Take a banana with you. If you eat it before noon, it's like gold. If eaten before two, it's like silver. But after two, it has no power. You never know when you'll need one.


I happen to have a banana if you have forgotten yours. I will give you mine... for a price of course. It's not much, just a simple answer I need to know, and the banana is yours.

Do you agree? Yes?

Excellent! Here's what I need to know from you:
What is your favorite color?

Ah! Yes, a lovely choice, reminds me of a smell... thank you.

Now that you have your banana, you will need some fairy gold. What's that? You don't have any? You can collect some from the cowslips- you will find them hiding here.

Very well; gold, banana, what else? Ah yes, something you already possess. Grasp tightly onto your imagination and enjoy the market my pretties.

Fear not the unexpected! 

"Gaze into my crystal ball..."

"Welcome to my booth. What do you fancy? I suggest the mirror. You never know what you'll find in your reflection. Just keep looking until what you seek is revealed." 

$1 piece of fairy gold





Try something new. 
Have some Bookworm Stew!

$2 pieces of fairy gold









Click into a mystery. If you find the clues, you'll make history!
Let us know what they are- and surly you'll go far ; ) 


Click to see a fairy, eat the banana, now be merry : )  

Until next time little darlings! 
Keep the magic ; )

  1. I don't trust that old lady. Not eating that banana...

    Is there actually something in that crystal ball or is that a smudge? O_0

  4. Eating a bowl of strawberries as I type, will this do instead of a banana?

    By the way, my favourite colour just happens to be (banana) yellow, the brighter the better.

    1. Hmmm... I'll have to check the books on substitution strawberries for bananas. You are a wise one to choose the lovely color yellow! ~ E

  6. How creepily cute! I've always preferred fairies who're not sweetness and light, so the fortune teller is right up my alley. I sure hope there's a fortunate story in my future. I have my good luck banana right here!! :-)

  7. Well, I ate a banana for breakfast...does that count? Looks like a kitty in the crystal ball...but it could be a monster. Lord knows I'm not good at puzzles. :D

    1. Was it before noon? If so, it has the same quality as gold ~ E

  8. I can definitely see a cat in the crystal ball, and I think it might even be a big cat - maybe a panther or tiger!
    You put so much work into the post and I Loved it!
