Peaceable Kingdom is a fantasic gift store! There is something for most anyone. My wife and I have always loved shopping there. I am not suprised that this would be a place intriguing and inviting to urban fairies.

This particular location is especially cool. The fairies have set up a "store" of their own inside. I call it a store, but there appears to be little commerce going on. They only accumulate items.

It has been my contention that the fairies do not have any concept of property or any business sense what-so-ever. They certainly do not keep regular business hours. From what I have seen the fairies have attention spans to match their size.

The fairy "store"is considerably more crowded than the last interior photo! Many of the dropping from this and other locations can be seen in here....

I was visiting Peaceable Kingdom after Saint Patrick's Day and noticed 2 new sets of windows on the opposite side of the store from the originals. I was sure I heard some noise, but the space was quite dark. When I illuminated the space with my fairy-finder-flashlight... I got quite a surprise! I thought I had spotted my first fairies. I took some pictures which reveal something almost as curious.

The next, showed me that they weren't fairies, though some of them have wings! They were perfectly still.

So... I was checking out the Cheese nips and rubbery glow-in-the-dark fairy droppings at Peaceable Kingdom when I notice the vandalism!
Somebody kicked in the fairy door and split the wood.
Idjeets!

The same morning that I noticed the (latest) damage to the fairy door at Selo Shevel.

After considerable wear and tear.and an actual TEAR (not crying, but ripping) the window shade had to be replaced.
The new one appears to be of better material and even has a pull ring.
