Frank and Bell Barr began the Faerie House in 1997. In 1998 they had their first full season of art fairs. The faeries have helped guide the evolution of the Faerie Houses. While the houses are adorned with architectural detail like window eaves and boxes, they don't need these things, just our imaginations. The faeries encourage us to tuck a bell in each house to help us be aware of their presence. So even if you don't see your faeries, you'll be able to hear them when their wings flutter near the bell. Each Faerie House is hand-built from molding the clay to hand painting each house. This means that each Faerie House is unique. As the faeries would tell us, "The imperfect is perfect in its own way."
