We have some very exciting news here at Lady Maggie! We have just launched our first retail location. We are pleased to announce that we have begun selling inside the historic Cotton Company building in downtown Wake Forest, NC.
We are located in the Artists Gallery portion of the venue. Wake Forest is located about 15 miles north of the NC capital, Raleigh.
The Cotton Company is a beautiful historic building which used to be the old Cotton Exchange at the turn of the century. The building has been refurbished to create a stunning space to showcase some amazing artists. The exposed brickwork and original hardwood floors add to the charm and help keep the warm, cozy feel.
We had discovered this shop on our first trip to Wake Forest when we began house hunting in Raleigh several years ago. Who would’ve guessed we would end up setting up our very first shop in that same building all these years later?!
We are offering a large selection of our items at this location – our custom embroidered pillows and our handmade bowties are already on display. We will be offering more items in store over the coming months.
Meanwhile, our online Etsy store remains open and offers our full range of designs. Both outlets are available for any custom orders or special requests.
So if you are near Wake Forest, come on by and say hello!
P.S. – As an added bonus, Cotton Company is pet friendly!

We have been honoured to be a small part of people's wedding day many times over the years. It is quite humbling to have someone trust you to help make their dreams of their big day come true. A couple of months ago, we received a request from a bride-to-be to help create bow ties for her two Dobermans. She had just found out that her two dogs were going to be allowed to participate in the ceremony. She chose the red silk bow tie that we offer for her male dog, but she also wanted something for her female dog. She contacted me through Etsy to ask about a gold bowtie for her girl. I emailed her back a selection of fabrics and she chose the gold she wanted. I then set about designing a special, more feminine, bowtie for her girl. This is what I came up with:
She was very happy with them and said they would look perfect for her furkids on the special day.
So often, that's the end of the story for us. Unfortunately, we don't get to see photos of the big day or how our designs looked. Thankfully, Samantha sent us some photos from her wedding, so we could see how everything turned out. We're very happy to have played a small part in helping to make her wedding everything she wanted it to be! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day.
Here's wishing the happy couple years of happiness together! Congratulations!
