“Cape Cod residents have been following Paula Deane and her knack for finding antiques and vintage pieces for years. She clearly loves the thrill of the hunt and loves passing along her treasures for others to enjoy.”

~ Margaret F., Cat’s Meow Antiques Friend

Paula Deane, owner of Cat’s Meow Antiques in the heart of Sandwich on Cape Cod, knows antiques. She has been in the business for decades, ever since her aunt passed on her love of found things. “She taught me that something old and classic has a story to tell. Someone has used it and it lives on. Antiques are survivors,” reports Paula.

She went on to tell us, “People love beauty. That’s what I look for in the pieces I buy, so that people can add a bit of beauty to their lives. It can just be something small — a curved moulding or a touch of color. Something unique that makes them smile.”

Paula has been in the business for so long that people know to call her if they have items in an estate to sell or are clearing out their houses. These are items that have never been to market since their original purchase. They are unique finds.

Paula says, “I especially like antique jewelry. It can be fun, costume jewelry. Something that once sparkled and still has life.”

“It’s so important to love what you do. This is the best job for me.” And that’s what makes Cat’s Meow Antiques the best shop for residents and visitors on Cape Cod who are looking for special, one-of-a-kind treasures.
