I will try to get permission and post pictures I have taken of people finding the fairy doors.

I will also post photos which are sent to me if permission to do so is given.

Fairy-finder(s) at Sweetwaters Café
So there I was having a mocha at Sweetwaters and what I thought was a group of 3 women came up and took some pictures of the fairy door and poster there. They had a map of the urban fairy doors and as it turned out 2 other partners in "crime".
7.25.06
A short while later as I drove to work...I see the group again at the Ark. I stopped and commented that they were "touring kind of early as Voila and Peaceable Kingdom did not open 'til 10 AM" (it was 9:30?). The response was that they were playing hooky!
OooooooooOOOoooooo!! BUSTED!

My family just happened to be downtown when this group showed up. A significant group in the mystery of urban fairies as it turns out.

Fairy Finders at Red Shoes
I was visiting Catherine Thursby at Red Shoes and restocking her urban fairy posters and cards. During the visit quite a few fairy finders happened by. The young lady above was very gentle with the door, asking before she opened the inner door.

Fairy Finders at Red Shoes
This young lady knew quite a bit about fairy doors, she knew how many there were and had visited several already.
On November 5, 2006

The day after finding the fairy door at the Ann Arbor District Library, I discovered fairy-finders there. The younger lady had a bit of conversation with the bookshelf.

The Fairy Welcome!
event at the library was a lot of fun!
Laura Raynor & Elizabeth Schneider
Told a wonderful fairy story and did some enthusiastic, interactive fairy chant/songs.
Looked like a pretty good turn out of children, adults and fairies of varies sizes (maybe 150?).
After the stories between doing a fairy wand construction craft, the fairy door was visited by quite a crowd.
... a very civilized crowd.
There was even a phairy photografer >>>
(I loved the phairy's colors against the teal wall)
Some found all this interest in fairies exceedingly exhausting.
When it was my turn to peek in,
I saw a fairy book on the table.
