They did have a lot of cute, and reasonably priced stuff in the shop. I was first drawn to to bags and purses, because I love stuff like that. They had a large variety and almost all of them could be monogrammed in the store. Most of them were around the $30 range, but there were some that went to $90 and up (of course, those were the ones that I liked the best).
They also had a lot of really nice gifts for a baby shower or something along those lines. They had these beautiful crib blankets that were unbelievable soft for $28. If I knew someone who was going to have a kid, it would be a great gift. They also had a lot of great stuffed animals and early-learning books and toys.
One of my favorite things in the store were these linen hand towels with elaborate initials monogrammed on them. They were only $10 and I almost bought one, but then I told myself that I didn't need anymore stuff in my house. They were hard to resist, though.
The Cat's Meow is located across the main street from the rest of the downtown area. There is a large parking area in front and it has a great big porch. The store is closed on Sundays and they have a website at www.catsmeowgifts.com.
