The Cat's Meow Village Collection is a line of Hand crafted wooden decorative designs of buildings. Some pieces are real places, both ordinary or historic, and others are just fanciful creations of Faline Jones. The creator of the series.
Unless otherwise noted, all pieces are new items that have never been owned by any other collector. However, due to their age, (some pieces are as much as 24 years old), and shop owners storage methods, some pieces may need cleaning, or have same nicks or paint mars. I will try to note any blemishes on these Cat's Meow wooden decorative collectibles, but please check all photos carefully and ask questions if you have any concerns.
These collectible gifts have many different uses. Some folks look at them as Christmas collectibles, or vintage collectibles, or even wood or wooden collectibles. But no matter how you see them, even as vintage or holiday collectibles, The Cat's Meow Village collection is known worldwide.

The Birth of The Cat's Meow® Village...
Faline, creator of Cat's Meow, began creating her unique designs in the fall of 1982. Faline enjoyed many crafts, but the workmanship and creativity of her Village catapulted her crafts to a new superior level and demand for them grew rapidly. What had begun as twelve designs available at two local stores in Wooster, Ohio, quickly gained in popularity throughout the United States. Today, Cat's Meow keepsakes have been created for nearly 1,000 retail locations in 50 states nationwide. Cat's Meows are also available on-line at www.catsmeow.com.
