Well who would have thought it, a whole year has nearly passed since I hosted my very first Lady Magpie & Me. I had this idea of a fair where there was a lovely mix of designer/makers, lots of vintage finds and tasty food to eat. And there had to be cake too in a pop up tea room served on pretty vintage china plates and displayed on my collection of cake stands.
So on Saturday the 3rd August its Lady Magpie & Me Summer Fete and our 1st birthday too.....yes just one year old and so much has happened in that year.
LM&M has had the joy of showcasing lots of marvellous designer/makers, vintage sellers and artisan foods from Scotland and beyond, welcomed just over 4,000 visitors through the doors at Lady Magpie & Me and invited to collaborate with Big Burns Supper, curating the vending machine project and invited to host our very first Makers Market in Dumfries by D&G Arts Festival as part of their 'In Our Town' programme. But even better we were voted Britain's Best Arts & Crafts Market by all our wonderful supporters.
I just want to say a big HUGE thank you for making my crazy dreams a reality..........party hats at the ready!
Love Leah X
