I love this boutique! I had a great experience here when I visited this week. Shop owner is a doll and super attentive. Her shop obviously reflects her personal aesthetic, well made pieces and carefully curated accessories. They also have gift items - I bought a soap and a cream made in USA for my mother-in-law. Definitely coming back!luci p.New York, NY
I love the products at Meus for myself and for gifts. Perfectly curated jewelry, clothing and home items. Highly recommend this Maplewood gem!South Orange, NJ
I love this store. I want everything in it pretty much all the time. So excited to have it here in Maplewood reminds me of Catbird mixed with an awesome thrift store.Deirdre W.Maplewood, NJ
This is my absolute favorite shop in the area and we're so lucky they have an online presence too. Every item is thoughtfully curated, every candle or fragrance is special. They have a lot of delicate jewelry, artisan homewares, etc. As others have said it's my go-to shop for really special gifts, but it's also a great way to treat yourself with a self-care item or unique piece of decor. Marichelle is also lovely!Erin M.Maplewood, NJ
