The Fairy Shop is one of the newer arrivals in Wynnum Central, opening up last year in the spot previously occupied by The Pink Flamingo homewares and gifts store.
The Fairy Shop owner Amanda (pictured left) started up the business in 2021 as an online shop, inspired by her three children (now grown up) who – when they were younger – loved the magical stores they visited around Australia filled with dresses, dolls and toys.
After two years as an online only business, last year she made the leap to a bricks and mortar retail shop in Wynnum, filling it to the brim with all sorts of fairy themed items for the (much) younger crowd. Although you may think this is ‘young girl thing’ they do have dressups for young boys too, such as capes and dragons, and even some adults, who are mainly interested in the fairy houses for their gardens!
Nearly all of the items that Amanda stocks are Australia made as well, plus, where an item is a gift The Fairy Shop offers a gift wrapping service.
You can find The Fairy Shop at Shop 2 138 Bay Terrace, open Tuesday-Friday 9am-3pm and 9am-1.30pm on Saturdays. You can of course also find them at https://www.thefairyshop.com.au/ and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ThefairyshopAustralia.
