FERGUS – The first Fairy and Witches Market got underway at the Centre Wellington Community Sportsplex in Fergus on Aug. 26. Vendors at the market sold crystals, jewelry, clothing, kitchen wear, dream catchers, paintings, and crafts with magical themes. There were also people offering services such as palm readings, tarot card readings, and intuitive healing.
Bubble blaster – Five-year-old Devon Bauber had fun playing with bubbles. Devon said she was dressed as both a fairy and a witch, and her mom said that’s not unusual for her, as Devon loves to dress up everywhere she goes. “She’s my Cyndi Lauper,” her mom said.
