Buddy McFreed's

Booth: Third Floor     Dealer Code: 4017

Located on the top floor of Antique Depot in historic Ellicott City, Maryland, and owned and operated by Stefan M. Freed, Buddy McFreed’s offers a little bit of everything! True to our original mid-century modern (MCM) aesthetic and vibe, but not limited solely to it, we carry a mélange of eclectic items that we, at BMF’s, think can be categorized by one or more of the following: kitschy, retro, vintage, trippy, wicked, groovy, and hopefully, FUN!

Like the song says, “a little bit of this, a little bit of that” - at Buddy McFreed’s, that’s surely what we think makes life so delicious! Fiesta Ware and other Homer Laughlin patterns, Corning Ware, Pyrex, Tupperware, and other vintage dishware. Avon and many other collectible lines. I Love Lucy. Marilyn Monroe. Elvis. Pop culture & Kitsch galore! Toys, plushies, and dolls for kids, and collectible toys and memorabilia for the kid in YOU! Vintage and vintage-inspired clothing (BMF’s has the distinction of being one of only two vendors in the whole building who carries men’s clothes)! Kidswear for infants & toddlers. Purses, jewelry, and unique accessories.

Buddy McFreed’s is named in memory of our late Scottish Terrier, Buddy Paris Freed-McGovern. Buddy knew how to make the most of each moment of his life, and reveled in the small things. He brought happiness and love into our home, was a constant reminder about what is truly important, and provided inspiration to us in so many aspects of life. As a result, Buddy’s spirit serves as our shop’s symbolic mascot.

The sheer variety of coolness at BMF’s will no doubt delight you as much as it does us! New stuff all the time – who knows what retro treasures you’ll find at Buddy McFreed’s?
