The Missing Tree Mystery – join our campaign!

little fir treeActing on evidence provided by a young hare, the Enchanted Times has just released a new Cover Story notecard relating the heartbreaking tale of the hare’s leveret-hood friend, a Little Fir Tree, who has recently disappeared under mysterious circumstances. According to the elders of his kindle, such wholesale abduction occurs on an annual basis, and more fir tree friends lost over the years than can be counted.

The Missing Tree Mystery Campaign has been launched in a bid to end the trafficking and unacceptable treatment of our beloved forest trees. In order to raise awareness for the Campaign we ask that you, our loyal readers, spread the word to all your correspondents this festive season, and help us make the Missing Tree Mystery global headline news!

ADDENDUM: The Art of Gold

It has been brought to the attention of the Editor that one of the feature articles from Enchanted Times #4, The Art of Gold (as reprinted below) – being the result of an interview with an unnamed representative from the Rumpelstiltskin Registry of Re-identification – lacks clarity for those readers non-conversant in colloquial dwarfish dialect.  Thus, an addendum has been produced, and a ‘translation’ insert will be included with all future print copies of Enchanted Times #4.  Pre-orders were despatched before the introduction of said addendum; however, the insert will be forwarded to all subscribers forthwith, courtesy of the  Fast-as-You-Can Courier Co.

Marketplace: facsimile postcard set, Emperor’s New Clothes

The Enchanted Times was recently in receipt of a heavily censored postcard from the Big City.

The postcard was delivered with words deleted using marker pen, in a packet inspected and labelled in accordance with the Correspondence Assured Delivery Treaty. An additional leaflet was enclosed, outlining the specific laws (by Royal Decree) that the postcard message was allegedly in breach of.

The Enchanted Times considers it has a duty to the public of our Enchanted Realms to make the actions of these corrupt City bureaucrats as widely known as possible, therefore a limited number of facsimile postcard/leaflet sets has been curated by the E.T. to illustrate the problem.

Please visit the TangleCrafts Etsy Store for further details & to claim your own limited edition facsimile postcard packet!
