First tree for the Festive Forest is up!

We have the first tree up in our forest thanks to Serendipity Bible House on Madison Street. They made their ornaments out of foam sheets cut into holiday shapes and then sprinkled with glitter. They are so pretty when the sun shines on them.

We still have room for more trees if you’d like to contribute one! Sign up to come by any time this month to set up a tree here.

So far, we have these groups signed up:

Angels with Heart
Found It Peer Support and Social Group
Girl Scout Troops 20435/30134
Grandeur Designs, Inc.
In memory of Eddie Rose
In Memory of Pamela Parkhurst
Legendary Letters
Local Artist James Rose
Rita’s Mind Designs
Serendipity Bible House
Slime World
Social Opportunities for Disabled Adults
Solano Cosplay Gathering

Newsletter for the Holidays and 2023 :)

Happy Halloween! I wanted to let you know that we’ve set the date for next year’s Wizarding Celebration. It will be Saturday, July 29th and we will have a few changes to ensure that everyone gets enough time to do everything and does not have to wait in a long line. We plan to offer free tickets through eventbrite and you will be able to pick your starting point from the 20 or so businesses that participate. That way no more than 15 people will start at each place and everyone will be spread out evenly. We hope to add another hour too so you won’t feel rushed. The theme will be Chamber of Secrets.

I wanted to quickly let you know about a few other things we have in the works. All of December we will be displaying trees in our back lot from local businesses, schools, sports teams, service organizations, churches, and clubs. The idea is to be as creative as you can using recyclables or other items you have on hand for the ornaments (and to not spend much money). The grand opening will be on December 2nd before and during the City of Fairfield’s tree lighting ceremony. We will also have a table for kids to write their letters to Santa. If you are part of any group interested in decorating a tree, please sign up to set it up some time in November at https://form.jotform.com/snjrose/ff . Visitors will vote for their favorites and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places will be announced after Christmas. We hope that you will visit our Festive forest even if you don’t decorate a tree! We will be collecting canned food for the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano Counties and new unwrapped toys for the Marine Toys For Tots Foundation. The collection barrels will be outside in the forest during our regular hours.

Those who write a letter to Santa on December 2nd or drop off their letters at Legendary Letters before December 15th, may receive a free reply back from Santa. Every year we choose at least 100 letters (that have complete return addresses) to reply to. We have received a few donations this year that will allow us to write even more. We are hoping to do up to 200 free replies. Note that the free letters are not personalized. If you prefer a completely custom letter from Santa for the children in your family, they are available in our online shop for $11 each and you would be helping us to continue spreading magic wherever we can. All the letters to Santa that we collect will go to the Macy’s Believe program which donates $1 for every letter to the Make a Wish Foundation.

Lastly, we are now offering Wizarding Parties in our outdoor venue. They are somewhat similar to the Wizarding Celebration, but for just you and 7 guests (and up to 6 chaperones for children’s parties.) Right now we have a party theme for First Year new students, but will be adding more as soon as we can. If you think you might be interested, please click on the “Parties” link on our site for more info.

That’s all the news here! Happy Halloween!
Elf Stacy

Festive Forest

SOLANO COUNTY RESIDENTS:
I have always wanted to bring something like San Jose’s Christmas in the Park to Downtown Fairfield, but I need your help! I’m seeking businesses, schools, clubs, sports teams, and service organizations to each decorate their own artificial tree with ornaments made from recycled items or items of no value and to set it up in our back lot in November. The grand opening will be December 2nd during the City of Fairfield’s official tree lighting and then the forest will be open during our regular hours all December.

 

Your tree will be a billboard for you, and we will also provide a sign with who decorated each tree. Visitors will vote for their favorite, and we’ll announce 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners after Christmas. You may laminate photos of your staff, make garland by stringing together your business cards, and use things like plastic bottles, tin cans, baby food jars, popsicle sticks, and anything else you can think of for ornaments. A plumber might make ornaments from bits of leftover pipe, a painter could use old paintbrushes, small paint cans, and paint samples, while an electrician could use bits of wire to create ornaments or use old light bulbs. The idea is to be as creative as possible while spending hardly any money. If you can get 20-30 people to each make an ornament it would take just a few minutes.

 

It is free to participate as you will provide your own tree and decorations, and it will be free to visit. Not only will you help make our Festive Forest a fun place to go in December, you will be helping out your community in lots of other ways. We will be collecting food for the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano Counties, new unwrapped toys for the Marine Toys For Tots Foundation, and children will be able to mail their letters to Santa. Macy’s will donate $1 for each letter to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
To make a November appointment to set up your tree, please go to https://form.jotform.com/snjrose/ff or email LegendaryLtrs@gmail.com with any questions. ~Elf Stacy (owner of Legendary Letters)

Growing up in San Jose, Elf Stacy always loved going to Christmas in the Park, and she wants to bring a mini version of it to Fairfield. You can see some of the wonderful trees from last year’s Christmas in the Park here.

Wizarding Celebration in downtown Fairfield, CA on July 31st

Come celebrate the birthday of the boy who lived with us in downtown Fairfield! You will start at Legendary Letters with a sorting ceremony and a Charms lesson. Then you will receive a map with all the participating businesses and a card for you to get stamped at each one. You will turn the card in at the end to be entered into a drawing for fun prizes! See the discussion for updates on the participating businesses and the activities they will host. 
#HarryPotter #FairfieldCA #SuisunCA #VacavilleCA #VisitFairfield #HarryPotterBirthday #HappyPotterCelebration #Hogsmeade #Hogwarts

For more information go to: FB Event

So far Legendary Letters, Slime World, Pizza Twist, Digital Stitchz, Three Restaurant, Vintique Marketplace, the Downtown Theatre, the Matt Garcia Foundation, the Fairfield Civic Center Library, Michael Electronic Services, CruiseOne, and Rosanna’s have all joined.
There is a free parking lot at the corner of Webster & Kentucky Streets and another off the alley behind it. It may be very hot that day so we don’t recommend costumes. Bring water. Wear comfortable shoes to walk all of downtown as well as a hat and sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. It’s going to be wicked! Until then, don’t let the muggles get you down.
*This is a free event, but space is limited. You may want to arrive before 1pm to make sure supplies don’t run out early. If we get more people than we have supplies for we may ask groups of 2-4 to share one card. If there are 12 stops, each person in a group of 4 would still get to do 3 activities, a group of 3 would get to do 4 each, and a group of 2 would do 6 each. We know Harry Potter fans will want as many people to participate as possible in the fun so thank you in advance!
(Please follow the COVID-19 requirements for each business. Masks may need to be worn inside. Streets will not be closed so be careful crossing the street and use designated crosswalks.)

We’re Open!

Hi everyone! We have some good news and some bad news. The GOOD NEWS is as of Monday Legendary Letters is back to being completely open for walk in customers in Fairfield, CA!

The BAD NEWS is, due to all the new international mailing requirements, we have decided to ship only to the USA (& territories), Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. We will still ship to all destinations through our Etsy shop though as they will handle the IOSS, VAT, HS Codes, and other requirements automatically.
