When the Main Street Association asked if we would like to have a wine tasting station at the Taste of Fairfield event, we thought they said wand testing! So, now not only can you come by on St. Patrick’s Day to taste some local wine, you can also test your wand skills! We finally got approval from MACUSA to be an official wand testing facility. Any minors who would like to see if they are a witch or wizard will not be in violation of the Decree for the Reasonable Restriction of Underage Sorcery when performing spells at our location.
If you’ve recently heard old timey music emanating from the blue Victorian on the corner of Empire and Jackson Streets in downtown Fairfield, CA you aren’t experiencing a time slip! It simply means that we’re open! We are now open to walk in customers from 10am to 2pm everyday except Wednesdays and Fridays. Children can drop off letters they’ve written to Santa Claus or other magical beings any time and we will make sure they get them. Parents can request replies from anyone in the magical or wizarding realms by going to our online shop. We can mail the letters directly to the recipient or we can email you when they’re ready and you can pick up.
How exciting! Cody Stark arranged for Kevin Hernandez to come out to our place this morning at 7am to film our Tardis refrigerator and talk a bit about Legendary Letters too. Click here to see the video:
Elf Stacy Rose, owner of LegendaryLetters.com (the Official Office of Magical Mail), is giving away a free letter from Santa Claus to the first 100 children who drop a letter to Santa in the vintage letter collection box she special ordered from Santa Claus, Indiana. She hopes to have it by this Friday in time for children attending the Fairfield Christmas Tree Lighting to deposit their letters. The mailbox will remain posted outside her business located at 805 Jackson Street until December 15th or until the 100 letter limit has been reached.
Although the free letters will not be personalized as the other greetings available in her shop, they will still be printed on colorful holiday stationery and be stamped with a faux North Pole postmark. Parents should ensure that their children’s letters have a return address on the envelopes so Santa will know where to write them back. Elf Stacy has been helping Santa write letters to good boys and girls since 1997, is a member of PASE (Professional Association of Santa’s Elves), and is the founder of NOEL (National Organized Elves League). She hopes to make the 100 letter giveaway an annual tradition.

I want Hogwarts to be real SO MUCH. Is my owl here, yet?

On June 20th, I received an order for a Hogwarts letter package for him. Someone close to him must want to help make his dream a reality. Today, July 29th, is his birthday. I wonder if it was ordered as a gift?
Think there’s even a remote possibility that our letter could make it onto his new TV show, “The Wil Wheaton Project”? 😉
I am SO excited to share this news with you all! I recently contacted the band, Modern English, through their official web site at http://modernenglish.me/ to ask permission to use their song, “Ink and Paper” as background music in a radio ad for Legendary Letters. The webmaster, Kraig, forwarded my email to them, and then wrote back that I was good to go. Robbie Grey had said, “No problem”! I am as giddy as a school girl right now bouncing off the walls that they responded! My husband and my official love song is “Melt with You” by them. Go check them out! They will be touring Europe and the UK soon. 🙂

Our local downtown business association (Fairfield Main Street Association) posted pictures of Legendary Letters on their Facebook page today. We recently got new exterior paint and hope it helps revitalize downtown Fairfield, CA a bit. Here is the link to their posting:
