I opened Meggie’s in October 2014 at The Falcon Inn, my family’s hotel, in beautiful Painswick.
I always dreamt of owning my own shop. After travelling, studying at University, working in Youth Work and hospitality for a number of years, I was lucky enough to grab the opportunity to open Meggie’s, my first little gift shop.
We spent a few weeks restoring an old storage room (more like a dumping ground) at The Falcon Inn, filling skip after skip. Then the fun started, the shopping! I went to trade shows and started contacting local crafters to build up Meggie’s stock. Being new to this game, I picked stuff I loved or anything I would love to be given as a gift myself.
Since then, I have recently moved to a larger premises in equally lovely Stow-On-The-Wold, the next big step for me! I opened Meggie’s in Stow in September 2016 – with extra space I have been able able to expand my product range into children’s gift & nursery accessories, party ware and my personal favourite shopping addiction, stationery!
Meggie’s is full of beautiful gift ideas, cards, home interiors, accessories, jewellery and lots more. A mix of design led gift ideas you hopefully haven’t seen on the high street and lovingly handmade items, many from here in The Cotswolds which makes Meggie’s totally unique.
As well as running Meggie’s, I also write a Cotswold Lifestyle Blog with my best friend Emily, Millie and Meg, it’s all about celebrating and sharing what The Cotswolds has to offer. We recommend lots of lovely things to do, restaurants/pubs to visit & promote other amazing Cotswold businesses. Follow us on Twitter & Instagram or like us on Facebook to see what we’re up to.
I hope to see you soon at Meggie’s.
