Meet The Porch Fairies…

Enter the Happy World of The Porch Fairies and ‘see something new every time you look’.

Over the last ten years our customers have told us they are still seeing new things in our pictures, so we’ve happily adopted the phrase!

The Porch Fairies’ World is full of happiness, dreams, magic and whimsy. From the smallest greetings card to a Forever Personalised keepsake framed print, you can be part of this magical World.

They attend shows, fairs and events across the UK, where you can meet them in person and even have a card or picture personalised by Fiona! They love meeting customers and followers.

Every illustration starts with a scribbled idea, (even at midnight), followed by pencil roughs, then the details come alive with hand drawn pen and ink, and eventually it is printed to the highest specification in England on FSC certified paper board, using vegetable based ink wherever possible and protected by biodegradable or recyclable wraps and packaging.

Vintage World – They have always loved the nostalgic and charming British artists from the 1950s onwards and a retro and Vintage Range complements their Happy World perfectly. So, it is a privilege to bring these celebrated artists back to life with their earnest little rabbits and jolly little teddies on greetings cards and other gorgeous things. A chance to relive cosy childhood memories and share with a new generation.

Put your party hat on, open your Jamboree bag, and take a trip down memory lane to the village fete with its hoopla and tombola stalls with Racey Helps, Molly Brett and other renowned artists.
