Applications Now Open for Pack Up Your Troubles Festival

We're on the hunt again for the perfect mix of designer/makers, artists, vintage sellers and artisan foods for our next event!

We are rather delighted to have been invited to organise a Lady Magpie & Me Vintage & Handmade Fair as part of the Pack Up Your Troubles Festival in Gretna on Saturday 29th August 2015 from 10am till 4pm, with free entry.  

The Pack Up Your Troubles Festival will be a nostalgic, feel good WW1 themed festival, to celebrate 100 years since the towns of Gretna and Eastriggs were created. The Festival Programme will be packed with loads of events to lift the spirits, including old style music hall and variety, a classic bus offering tours of the famous Munitions Factory, a WW1 themed tearoom and much much more. The Festival is being fully embraced by the local communities in which it takes place and will be of interest to all those interested in WW1 themes, military and social history and the Gretna and Eastriggs diaspora. If you want to Pack Up Your Troubles in August, you know where to come.

We want to offer customers and visitors to Lady Magpie & Me, a wonderful curated mix of designer/makers, vintage, food and so much more! Our hope is to offer an alternative shopping experience, promoting high quality craft, design and art alongside vintage sellers and artisan foods from Scotland and beyond.
