About Maude's Vintage Ware
Our Service Pledge
Orders will be responded to with due promptness. The buyer will be notified of any unseen delays. Every effort will be made to accurately describe items and any existing flaws.
My grandmother Grace and her eight sisters provided an early inspiration for saving all things vintage.Toiling at never-easy "cleaning lady" jobs, Grace saved many an item from the city dump. Her sister Maude was a professional seamstress who ignited in me an appreciation for fashions and fabrics. Aunt Ruth showed that a practical side could have good humor, too. I have been collecting and decorating with antiques and vintage whimsies for over 30 years. Part of the joy of collecting and selling is being able to share "finds" with others. I am a full-time clinical social worker and a part-time junque searcher. Most weekends find me at auctions in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin trying to win the bid on something I love or that I know you will love too. My shop represents the best of those finds. If you enjoy my "stuff" as much as I do, we will be the perfect vintage match.
