Frederick Faces: Maria Peck

Maria Peck followed a lifelong dream when she opened Tiara Day, located at 153 N Market St.  After many day dreams from her former office job, Maria decided it was time to take the leap to open her own boutique. “My mother and grandmother raised me antiquing and I have always been a girly girl -loving glamour and dressing up,” says Peck, “It only feels natural to have Tiara Day.”

A self-proclaimed Francophile, Peck says her customers along with her passion for fabulous treasures inspire her daily. Like many of her customers, Peck herself is a collector. “My favorite collection is probably my vintage and antique Halloween decorations which range from the early part of the 20th century until the 1950’s.”

Peck opened Tiara Day in Downtown Frederick after searching for a new location to move her originally Kensington-based boutique. She says Downtown Frederick is a perfect fit. “I love being part of a real downtown with local independent stores…Frederick offers a unique and wonderful indie shopping and eating experience!”

What is one of Maria’s favorite parts of owning Tiara Day? “As a bonus, I am very blessed to have my mother and best friend, work side by side with me at the shop every day!-and we get to wear tiaras every day at work! What could be better?”
