At corner of the parking structure
Fourth Ave and William Street, Ann Arbor
The approach to the fairy village, looking South on South Fourth Avenue.
See it? The fickle finger of fate is pointing at it.
The Fairy Village at the corner of South 4th Avenue and William Street in Ann Arbor. It may not be a fairy village, but it is certainly a village for someone or something rather weensie. I am slowly finding out bits of the origins.
I heard from Adam, he said, "...I deliver homes that are made by a group of fairies called "the Windlings"-- I take care of the things they can't. They left me instructions to deliver the houses to Nature's Garden Center in Ann Arbor and they would take it from there. I don't get all the details -- they are very secretive. My instructions were to hand deliver them to Missy and Steve."
We aren't exactly sure who placed the order for the adorable houses. But I was more than happy to put them in the requested location and dress the area up a bit for them (as any gardening gal would). I've visited a few times to check for signs of the residents, but none so far. (Hope whoever moves in likes yardwork :) Missy
