Hello, I'm Jacilyn, the owner, buyer and designer for Mavis and Madge.
You can usually find me in my studio cutting out paper garlands or scouting estate sales for vintage treasures. I'm an introverted daydreamer who is most likely born in the wrong decade but still has one foot solidly in the now.
Mavis and Madge is a collection of happy and cheerful things, supplies for a happy home and a happy life. A collection of vintage home goods and handmade paper items that are derived from many sources of inspiration:
garlands strung across a mantle
a cozy bedroom on a rainy night
candlelit family dinners at a pretty table
a foggy day at the beach
hugs and giggles from cute little monsters
most anything from the 1930's & 40's
family celebrations and hallmarks
old black & white photos
butterflies & flowers
cozy cups of tea
reading books - anywhere & everywhere
movies like You've Got Mail, Somethings Got to Give & Practical Magic
music by Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Django Reinhardt
outdoor picnics on pretty blankets
If these things speak to you then you are in the right place, my dear friend.
Many thanks for stopping by and taking the time to learn more about Mavis and Madge.
Feel free to send me a note with comments or questions. I'd love to hear from you!
