    Fairy Garden Workshops (see what’s new for 2016!)

    FAIRY GARDENS (with Sweet, New Houses)   Fairy Garden Workshops are our favorites. Using natural materials to create  the little scenes is fun and feels familiar, friendly and easy.

When Dragonwings moved to 110 S. Main Street, we gave our beloved tree to the Waupaca Library Youth Dept. We hear that library visitors are thrilled to find it there. Dragonwings’ new home is in The Bookcellar – that fabulous store filled to overflowing with books and music. We are right across from the library and next door to Little Fat Gretchen’s cafe. In fact there is a door between the bookstore and cafe, so, next time you come in you can browse our new books, games and puzzles, wander through the used books and music, and then step into LFG’s for homemade pie. See you soon!

LOOKING FOR E-BOOKS? We sell e-books through Kobo – the largest e-book retailer in the world! They have great deals, too. If you use this Dragonwings Kobo link: CLICK HERE TO SEARCH, BROWSE AND PURCHASE E-BOOKS your purchase will help support Dragonwings. Thanks!

Testimonials

What an incredible treasure Waupaca has. Dragonwings is an such an asset to the children, families, schools, libraries and community in central Wisconsin. In the modest traveling I have don in the US and abroad, I can say that it is very rare to find a shop so authentic and friendly focused only on the children of a small town.
