About Mary Jane Dawes

     The Calico Cat, celebrated their 4th year in Clyde in November of 2011. Owner Mary Jane Daves has been in the antique business for 15 years and has dreamed of owning her own business and being part of a wonderful town.
Dawes was born and raised in Clyde and returned in 2005.

     The Calico Cat has an eclectic mix of old and new items. The stock is always changing. Dawes and her one employee, Frances Sinclair, enjoy doing windows in themes and holidays.

     The pair have four windows to see as they decorate or "do" Our Town's Brewin' windows too. Sinclair stated that she enjoys her employment at the shop. Now there is a Calico Cat and Friends in the old Fiser barber shop, across Main Street.

     The Calico Cat plans to keep on being a part of downtown Clyde and feels that downtown can make a comeback. There are many buildings ready for a tenant.

     Dawes says being a shop keeper in Clyde is an honor. She believes having customers and meeting the public is very satisfying.
