Miffed Kirk’s Folly Fans Want Their Fairyland Sets Back On QVC, Which Nixed Them

November 2, 2009

Fans of the Kirk’s Folly jewelry line on QVC are hopping mad that the home shopping network has put the kibosh on the elaborate sets that used to be the backdrop for Folly’s shows.

Kirk’s Folly jewelry is, how shall we say this, fairy-inspired. In the past, Kirk’s Folly “Fairy Godmother” Jenniefer Kirk would come in and have her folks dress up their set on QVC, with magical fairy dust and angel wings.

Kirk would wear elaborate princess-like costumes, and even the QVC hosts would sometimes wear this get-up, as well. This whimsical line is not our thing, but its fans are devoted and cult-like.

Well, the fancy sets are now gone, and that has some posters to QVC’s online jewelry forum ready to stuff fairy dust down the throat any QVC exec they can get their hands on.

Kirk’s Folly apparently told a poster that “QVC has taken a specific direction for their branding and they had no choice but to comply.”

But according to one poster, “The set is what made the products so magical.”

Here is a closer look into the Kirk’s Folly fairy world, at its Web site.
