Thank you so much to everyone who came out for our ribbon cutting ceremony on June 21st and to Margaret and Yolie at the Fairfield Main Street Association for organizing it. We hope all of our customers will visit us soon at 707 Kentucky Street, Fairfield, CA 94533 to see the new digs! We have 4x more space than we did before. While parents browse our personalized greetings from magical beings (or our movie prop replicas, wands, candy, and jewelry), children can listen to the Magical Community Hotline on our general store country phone, write a letter to anyone in the magical world at the children’s writing desk, scan a QR code to play a bingo scavenger hunt game for a prize, or if they’re really brave try out a Bertie Botts or Beanboozled jelly bean. They can place letters to Santa in the big red mail box and flip the switch that turns on the red light to signal Santa to pick up his mail. Letters to the Wizarding World, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, Cupid, etc. can be tubed through our magical tube system just installed by Elf James. Visitors of all ages can try out their wand skills at our wand testing station (the only official one in Fairfield, CA). We’ll be open 10am – 2pm everyday except Wednesdays and Fridays.
I’ve been tinkering with the idea of hosting a letter writing contest for some time, and I’ve decided to go for it! I’ve sent thousands of letters out over the past 22 years (every single one written by me). I still love what I do, but I can’t help thinking it would be great to have input from other people. What would it be like to have a resident of Ireland write as a leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day, a WWII veteran write as Uncle Sam for Independence Day, or an Environmentalist write as Mother Nature for Mother’s Day? I can imagine being these things, but I haven’t really lived it the way they have. I also wondered how writers from all generations would have different points of view and memories about the holidays? I really hope we get submissions from Millennials, Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the Greatest Generation as well as those still in school.
I’ve posted all the details on the Contest Page and hope you’ll check it out. There are 11 categories of characters and holidays to choose from. Anyone 13 and up may enter, and the deadline is December 15, 2018. Prizes will be awarded on December 20, 2018 just in time for the holidays. Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to write a letter to a fictional child named Jessie Jones as a magical being.
