Stone Soup Celebrates Spring with Faery Festival

Stone Soup, the Fort Walton Beach shop that sells local artisan-made goods and other unique items, will host its fourth annual Faery Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 23. The festival will feature intuitives, massage therapists and other healers, aura photography, food, children's crafts, children's yoga with meditation, a variety of vendors and a Faery Garden Scavenger Hunt.

Shop owner Jan Myers says the festival has grown from a small indoor gathering to an indoor-outdoor event that attracts people from as far away as Jacksonville and Montgomery, Alabama. 

“Faery Festival began as a get together of like-minded folks celebrating the rebirth and new growth that spring brings,” she says. “Fairies have the magical task of waking up the plants and animals for another year. We honor the work they do with Mother Earth to ensure the circle of life continues.”

Stone Soup is part of an intimate group of shops that offer healing and one-of-a-kind goods.  

 “Just behind Stone Soup, Roots Shoppe offers dry herbs, tinctures and much more—and right next door is Yours Truly, offering Young Living oils and other wonderful products,” Myers says. “I love how the community comes together to shake off winter and step into a season of rebirth, growth and change. I feel blessed to be a part of it all."

Location: 700 Beal Pkwy. NW, Unit D, Ft. Walton Beach, FL. For more information, call the shop at 850-533-6565.
