My Quest for the Seven Fairy Doors of Ann Arbor

September 12th, 2015 (10:28 am)

I decided to hunt down the Seven Fairy Doors of downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan (Wikipedia).

#1 Fairy Door inside the Ann Arbor library:

#4 Fairy Door interior in Red Shoes.

#5 Fairy Door inside Himalayan Bazaar:
fairydoor5a

#6 Fairy Door inside Sweetwaters Coffee:
fairydoor6a
The first Fairy Door chronologically; appeared in April 2005.

#7 Fairy Door in the Shinola store:
fairydoor7a
This last one was tricky; wikipedia has it listed in the Selo-Shevel Art Gallery, but that closed in 2013. But the Shinola store is the same location, and still sports the Fairy Door.

Adding a fairy to a Little Free Library

This Little Free Library in Ann Arbor had a fairy ladder, so I added a fairy to it. Fairy acquired at The Rocket, Ypsilanti, Michigan. And if you're in downtown Ypsilanti, check out Model Cave Hobby Shop.
