FAQ & Site Info
AboutAbout half a life ago, someone told me that I would never have to reincarnate as I was living all my lives in this one. Looking back I tend to agree with the speaker. I have many and varied memories of people, places and things ranging from heavenly to horrid and everything inbetween.
The Lives and Loves of Maggie the Cat and my satillite stores, Maggie the House Cat, The Arts and Letters of Maggie the Cat, and Maggie the Cat's Meows are all about life's memories, the recent and not so recent past, the objects that remind us of someone, something, or somewhere in our pasts. Now I have a fifth Ecrater store devoted to vintage souvenirs. See ViewFinders.
From a doily your grandmother kept on her dining table to a book you loved as a child and probably wore out. A brooch like one your mother wore or the perfect handbag to carry with the vintage suit you found elsewhere, Maggie the cat has it.
Antique, vintage, previously owned or stuck in a drawer and never used, useful or purely decorative; if it's easily shipped you just might find it here. The stores of Maggie the Cat website can be subdivided into five general categories: Fashion accessories, Home accessories, Printed material/Artworks, Cat collectibles, and Souvenirs.
I hand pick every item I offer for sale so rest assured items are in great condition. If there is a flaw, it will be described and photographed. I only offer flawed items if they are highly collectible or have value for crafters. Take advantage of combined shipping. It can save you a bundle. I combine items between all five stores but you have to check out of each individually.

I am trying to go out of business. I am of advanced years and limited mobility. Prices in all stores are currently being reduced to clear. Buy a lot and I will give you an even greater deal.
