Maggie Mae’s in Glen has many unique items ranging from antiques to contemporary merchandise.
Owner Cedailua McNair said the business is named after her former golden retriever who passed away in 2016.
The business, located at 2408 U.S. Highway 72 E., opened in October and recently underwent an expansion.
Maggie Mae’s started as a flea market booth in 2017, but McNair said her goal was to open a storefront.
As one walks through Maggie Mae’s, it is easy to see that the business has items for every room of the house.
“Many people tell us we have some of the most unique things they’ve seen,” said McNair.
Tables, chairs, dressers, book cases, end tables, china cabinets, couches and desks are some of the furniture items at Maggie Mae’s.
“We sell more furniture than anything,” McNair said.
Jewelery, authentic military collectibles, pottery, vintage toys and glassware are other items for sale.
“We have people who come in who collect vintage jewelry,” she noted.
Some of the military collectibles are from World War I and II.
“We do like to know the history of our items so we can pass that on to our customers,” McNair added.
The merchandise is in great condition, and the store is very well organized. New items come in on a continual basis.
“We do try to have good quality items,” she said, adding that there are also custom-made products such as pine trunks.
“From what people tell us we have good prices,” McNair said. “We want everybody to get a bargain.”
There is even a rack with items for $1.
“Sometimes we just get an overflow of merchandise and we need space,” she said.
McNair loves having the store in Glen, saying, “We’ve lived here our whole lives. We wanted to build our business here.”
Many people from Alabama and Tishomingo County shop at Maggie Mae’s, which is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
“We have people who just want to come in and sit down and stay awhile,” McNair said.
