The Spotted Cod

26 Nov The Spotted Cod


This past weekend I stopped in at The Spotted Cod, one of my favorite interior décor shops.  The store is located on Cape Cod in the historic seaside village of Sandwich, the oldest town on the Cape (& where we got married!).


The Spotted Cod takes up residence in this charming cottage which consists of four rooms, each tastefully styled and filled with high quality gifts. Lifestyle and entertaining expert Matthew Mead recalls his visit to The Spotted Cod on his blog here, and I think he sums it up perfectly!

“We entered Lee’s store, which is a magical mix of unique home accessories arranged in luscious and enviable color palettes.  Lots of beautiful “one of a kind” artisan wares – many of which are made special or custom embellished just for the shop – making this experience a definite must for anyone looking for something fresh, stylish, and different. I was totally enthralled with the beach glass-colored room which is filled with items in the most incredible shades of blues and greens. Lee has a real affinity for these hues and has found a myriad of handcrafts in multiple materials that will literally make you jump for joy… I LOVED it!!  And there is so much to thrill over: pottery, glass, tabletop, linens, jewelry, home, and fashion accessories. Beautiful art, candles, and ornaments all perfectly made and displayed.”
See the Sferra linen napkins peeking out from the drawer?  Eight of them (in various shades of blue & green) came home with me. Won’t they look perfect in my new dining room?

While the shop has a definite coastal vibe, owner Lee Repetto is quick to point out that her items can mix seamlessly with a variety of interior design styles.  She also works with several artisans to create beautiful products and jewelry specifically for The Spotted Cod.
These fish dishes come in many delicious shades of blue and green.

They carry Elizabeth Di Cara Cream Porcelain and Cape Cod native Holly Heaslip’s pottery.

I love the textured basket weave on these plates.
With the wind howling outside, I definitely considered getting a blanket or two!
These Sferra throws are lovely!

Love these baskets that sit under the front window!  Lee says that customers always ask about purchasing them, but they are used for storage. 🙁  Otherwise I would have taken home a few!
Dear Santa, Any one of these tortoiseshell pieces would be lovely…
These delicate pieces are beautiful too!

How cute are these lisa b. socks for little toes?!
Holiday red & green…

“Woof woof…jingle jingle”
The back room is all-American & nautical, full of everything you need for coastal living!
I am a firm believer in supporting small, local businesses, and The Spotted Cod is not one you want to miss! Lee is so hospitable and gracious, she makes you feel like you’ve stopped in to visit an old friend. She or one of her associates are always willing and happy to help you find that special something or choose a gift, and they also offer complementary gift wrapping. 
I’m going to be heading back to Sandwich on December 15th for the Holiday Home Tour…can’t wait to get a peek at some of Sandwich’s finest homes, decorated for the holidays!

    Oh my gosh this store is AMAZING! I just added it to the top of my to-do list for my next visit to the Cape (hopefully soon–I miss it so much!) and I am headed to Mr. Mead's blog now! Thanks for sharing and Happy Thanksgiving!
