MOOD  |  READY

It’s taken some time to get here and now I’m ready. My storefront on Main Street in Longmont is open again! The past year gave me time to reorganize, dive into my own heritage, draw close the things I hold dear. Magic is so special to me. As is living my life with intention. Sharing these things with all of you is my life’s work.

In this week’s blog I am pleased to introduce you to Michelle, my new Tender of Magic for the storefront. Her presence is the last piece of the puzzle for which I had been searching. When you make your way to our door for a visit, you can be assured that your needs will be met with a kind and caring heart.

Magic Fairy Candles is located at 634 Main Street, Longmont, CO 80501
The storefront will be open Fridays 12-6, Saturdays and Sundays 11-5.

All my love, always.

MICHELLE STANGER | TENDER OF MAGIC
Michelle is a soulful match for the Magic Fairy Candles store—“Whatever you may be looking for, the store is whatever you need it to be. Sweet smelling candles, essential oils, soaps, yes! And if you want to journey further, we’ve got that too—tarot and oracle decks, magical bundles, a potion bar for assisting you with specific teas or spells,” she says.

When asked about her favorite Magic Fairy Candles products, Michelle raves about the Band of Thieves soap, which both she and her husband use, as well as the Meditation line of products and the Sacred Space Ritual Box. She gravitates towards anything which helps her focus and move more deeply into a meditation mindset. “I love how the products are made to help people grow and find themselves,” she says.

In chatting with Michelle about journeys and opening to new things, it’s evident that her years of experience as a Vinyasa yoga instructor have informed her understanding of meeting others where they are. Her hope in serving as Tender of Magic is to continue helping humans grow to discover their inner truth and presence. Michelle muses about the upcoming opening, “I’m looking forward to carrying the message of leading a life of intention and sharing it with the community, helping people find what they need, supporting them with a cup of tea and a chat.”

THREAD & THOUGHTS
Michelle’s serendipitous step into her new role came about through sewing. When her daughter was young, she taught herself how to sew in order to fashion fun things for her. As the pandemic slowed things down this past year and her yoga classes were cut back, Michelle dove into sewing lovely fabric and tie wraps for tarot decks. When untied and opened, the wrap serves as a protective cloth upon which your tarot cards may be spread.

Kim asked to see the tarot wraps in hopes of carrying them in the store. Supporting local artists and craftspersons has always been an integral part of Kim’s mission. As Michelle and Kim chatted about the store opening, the search for a Tender of Magic was still ongoing. Michelle recalls driving home and thinking, “I think I’d like to do that!”

Of the positive things which have grown out of the pandemic, her tarot wraps are not the only one. Michelle says the time has really been a teaching about stopping. “Everything stopped and I was able to reflect, to just be with my kids and my husband, to sit back and enjoy one another. I realized that what I have right in front of me is what it’s all about. Everything else can be a distraction,” she says.

If you have never been to Magic Fairy Candles, it can be a little like stepping into a different plane of existence. Many times people have wandered in off Main Street into the store and simply said, “I just wanted to see what this is.” When asked how she might answer such a question, Michelle simply replied, “It’s the coolest place in Longmont!” We believe you will think so too.
