About

I love beautiful things, bargains and treasure hunting. If money were no object, I'd still be at the thrift store far more often than high end retail. There is such joy in finding something so unique that no one else is wearing, especially at an affordable price.

That's the passion behind Ms Maude: vintage treasures & unique, one-of-a-kind accessories and home decor that is fun and budget friendly!

*ORIGINALS & UP-CYCLED PRETTIES*
All originals are lovingly designed and hand-crafted by me, using materials such as velvet, cashmere, silk, taffeta, etc. and finished with authentic vintage buttons, costume jewelry pieces or stylish beads. In an effort to do my part to save the world, most of my pieces are designed using recycled material rather than yardage from the fabric store. I love to dress up…

In an effort to do my part to save the world, most of my pieces are designed using recycled material rather than yardage from the fabric store. I love to dress up vintage hats, scarves, clutches, etc. If you have something in mind that you can't find anywhere, contact me & I'll see what I can do. :)

*VINTAGE TREASURES*
Vintage offerings will vary, but will always be fabulous. I never list something that I personally wouldn't want to own, which is what I tell Mr. Maude, actually.
"If it doesn't sell, we get to keep it!", I say with a big smile. "Um, right. Do your best to sell all this stuff, ok?", replies Mr Maude (he & his wallet aren't nearly as enthusiastic).
Depending on the success of the hunt, you may find accessories, clothes and shoes for men, women & kids, household staples like linens & Pyrex, and home decor from kitschy to elegant. You never know what goodness you'll find, so check back often!

*SALES*
Throughout the year, I hold sales which could mean free shipping or discounted pricing on your favorite things. These sales are typically for a limited time only and most often are held during special holidays. The mother-of-all-sales is in July and you won't want to miss it! It's a birthday sale, and the discount reflects the number of candles on my cake.
Ms Maude is no spring chicken, which means great pricing for you!
Return customers will always get 20% off their order by using coupon code FRIEND20 at checkout. Discount can not be combined with any other discount that is being offered during a sale, but you may certainly choose which discount you would like applied to your order (for instance if a sale is offering 10% off, use the 'friend20' code if you're a returning customer, because that's way better).

*RETURNS*
I really want you to love your purchase. If you're not satisfied, please contact me and we'll work it out so that you're happy!

*SHIPPING*
Once payment is processed, your item(s) will ship within three business days.
Orders ship via USPS Priority Mail unless otherwise requested.
Cost to ship to Canada is estimated and may be shipped via UPS or USPS depending on best value to you.
Orders to Canada and everywhere else: Please contact me before placing your order with your specific delivery information so that I can calculate exact shipping costs.
Please note that buyer is responsible for any additional costs incurred at customs.

Thank you for visiting my store! Please feel free to send a message if you have a custom piece in mind that I could create for you.
