We want to offer customers and visitors to Lady Magpie & Me, a wonderful curated mix of designer/makers, vintage, food and so much more! It’s an alternative shopping experience set to a vintage style soundtrack, with live entertainment, diy crafting workshops, demonstrations and a pop up tea room.
Our hope is to promote high quality craft, design and art alongside vintage sellers and artisan foods from Scotland and beyond.
We were thrilled to be voted Best Arts & Crafts Market in a online national poll. We've also been featured in Pretty Nostalgic Magazine, Homes & Antiques Magazine, DG Life Magazine, UK Handmade website plus lots of local press and radio.
We really do feel it’s a unique event within Dumfries & Galloway. After the success of our previous events we now hope that Lady Magpie & Me becomes a date in the diary with 3 events hosted in Spring, Summer and Winter. We attract around 500 to over 1000 visitors on the day at each event and many stallholders had the best sales they’d ever had at an event of this kind.
Lady Magpie & Me is organised by Leah Halliday who is a designer/maker, vintage seller and also hosts sewing and creative So Sew Pretty workshops. I'm thrilled to organise Lady Magpie & Me events right here in the South West of Scotland.
Having had to travel to exhibit at events and fairs to sell her wares, she felt that it was about time there was a fair that she would want to both visit and exhibit at in Dumfries & Galloway. Having visited some craft fairs locally she always came away feeling slightly disappointed.
With a love of all things vintage it seemed only natural to put all this together and for Leah to organise Lady Magpie & Me. Each Lady Magpie & Me aims to have a contemporary feel but with a vintage twist.
If you'd like to apply for a stand then you'll find our online applications on our blog along with terms and details. Keep your peepers peeled on our facebook page and blog. Or you might like to sign up for the Lady Magpie & Me Mailing List.
Looking forward to meeting one and all at our next Lady Magpie & Me!
