ABOUT US


The Maggie's Memories Rolled Cotton People line was created by Margaret Haire out of a love for antiques, family and faith. Maggie's Memories has been created in memory of her grandmother and her mother and in honor of her daughter, who is the fourth Margaret in a row. Margaret grew up in a family that cherished traditions passed down from generation to generation. Her family also loved the warmth and beauty of antiques. Frequent antiquing trips to the old German Village in the heart of her Midwestern city laid the foundation for a line of Christmas and other holiday decorations recalling the German craftsmanship, whimsy, and warmth of a simpler era.

After Margaret married, she and her husband, Dennis Haire, began antiquing and amassed a large collection of antique Christmas and other holiday decorations which have been featured in Country Living magazine, Antique Weekly, Auction Exchange & Collectible News, Collector's Journal, American Country Collectibles and Country Collector. As these antique decorations became more rare and more expensive, Margaret began to recreate favorite items using vintage parts.

The Maggie's Memories line is inspired by the Rolled Cotton People, enchanting bisque faced children manufactured from 1880- 1920 in cottage industries in Germany. These charming figures were typically dressed in cotton snow suits. Many were candy containers in which the package, as well as the candy, became the gift. Margaret and Dennis want to bring to you a smile filled with happiness and love as you give a gift from the heart reflecting a simpler and more whimsical time.

Maggie's Memories Rolled Cotton People now allows everyone the ability to recreate the warm traditions of a bygone era. These lovely figures appeal to those whose tastes span the spectrum of decorating categories, so that you too may delight in creating a family tradition of collecting and experiencing the magic that comes from decorating for the holidays.
