What does a rare brain disease (iih), Autism, Severe heart condition & Fairies have in common?
The answer is simple the fairy tale dream come true, opening my own store! Fairy Wings & Things. As newly weds my wife and I talked of opening a shop with romantic notions and splendid ideas...then came a series of life changing events for the most part Wonderful: Having two children a dog a home. I was caught up in work, my wife's diagnosis with depression, then a rare brain disorder, my first child having Autism, my second having club foot (Feet turned in) and at 4 weeks old needing urgent heart surgery...this list could get bigger but all this led to an opportunity I dreamed of: opening Fairy Wings and Things! (My family are all survivors and dealing with each new challenge as a reason to laugh!)
As fantasy fans and avid collectors of Fantasy figurines it was easy to choose our Niche!
So here I am with Not Just a physical shop but embarking on my own retail website selling goods I myself love, I hope you enjoy them too!
