A special thank you to my friend Amanda from Kids Around Cobb, who told me about this fun place in Blairsville.
Sleepy Hollow is a store AND an “enchanted garden” of fairies and gnomes.
The fairy homes found here are the work of Art Millican, Jr, a former Disney artist and model-maker.
His whimsical fairy cottages range in size from birdhouses of about 1ft tall, to garden decor about 2 ft tall, to playhouses for kids.
My kids loved walking the Enchanted Garden filled with playhouses and gnomes hiding in secret places.
The gift shop is sells a few items for purchase (we left with a gnome door for our garden,) and art supplies. I asked about any workshops for teaching the craft, but they told me that the elves are so busy filling orders that teaching seemed impossible.
If you are in the Blairsville area, possibly hiking or staying the weekend, this is definitely worth a stop!
