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.)

Try the Invisibility Cloak when you stop in!

Legendary Letters now has an invisibility cloak that you can try on when you visit us! We’d be happy to take a short 10 second video of you and then email it to you. Elf Hunter had a great time trying it out as you can see in the video below!

Take a photo with our Fairy Wings!

The Fairfield Main Street Association is starting a new program where businesses in downtown Fairfield, CA paint all different types of wings somewhere inside or outside their shops for people to take photos in front of. (This was in honor of Travis Air Force Bases 75th Anniversary this year.) We’re proud to say that thanks to our resident artist elf, James Rose, we are the first downtown business to have our wings up! We chose fairy wings to honor the Tooth Fairy and others in the magical world. When you visit us be sure to take a photo with your wings and post to social media with the hash tags #LegendaryLetters and #FairfieldWings

Elves Hunter and Logan were excited to strike a pose as you can see!

Elf Stacy’s 1990 Writing Contest Win

Back in 1990 when I was a senior in high school, my Government teacher read about a writing contest hosted by UC Davis. He decided to make it a class assignment (we had to write an essay about the importance of the media and free press). My mom was always trying to get me to enter writing competitions whenever she came across them in the newspaper or magazines, and although I had loved creative writing since 5th grade, I never felt my writing was good enough to compete. Since writing this essay was mandatory for my class, I went ahead and turned it in. My teacher, Mr. Harker, submitted them all to UC Davis, and I was shocked to learn that I had won 2nd place and a prize of $250!

My family was so proud when we got to go to an award ceremony and news reporter, Bob Schaeffer, presented me with an engraved plaque and the check. At the time I was just pleased that I got to spend the money on material to make my senior prom dress. Later I realized that winning that award is what gave me the confidence to get my BA in Humanities from San Jose State and to open my own writing business in 1996. I’ve been thinking about that contest a lot lately. (I even got my photo and essay published in our local newspaper, The Daily Republic.) I keep telling myself I need to get to the library and find it on their microfiche since I lost my copy quite awhile ago.

I’ve decided that I’d like to host my own writing contest based on that experience, and will write about it in another blog post soon!

Elf Stacy’s mother passed away

We are heartbroken that Stacy’s mom, Pamela Parkhurst,  lost her 4th battle with breast cancer and passed away on Easter Sunday. She was devoted to her family, Girl Scouting, and American Girl Doll collecting. She helped around the Magical Mail Office whenever things got really busy and always volunteered at our Letters to Santa Booth each year during the City of Fairfield’s Christmas Tree Lighting. She will be missed by so many friends and family members. We will be closed for a week to grieve and make arrangements. If you’d like to read her obituary, you may click here.

Wine Tasting or Wand Testing?

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.
