Welcome to The Nest
a vintage urban boutique
furniture, decor, clothing & other stuff we like
We don’t like to be limited, so we carry anything that catches our eye. We love furniture, decor, clothing & jewelry, but don’t be surprised to find collectible 50s highball glasses, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band on vinyl, 60s gossip magazines, cowboy boots, original artwork and pretty much anything else we come across that has a story, character, a sense of humor or is just plain awesome.
We are suckers for vintage pieces because craftsmanship mattered back then. Furniture was made with solid wood and dove-tailed joints, not sawdust and glue. Clothes were made in the USA out of high quality fabric, not thrown together so quickly that the stitching comes out after two washes. Things were made to stand the test of time, not bound for a landfill when they mysteriously break a month after the warranty expires.
These will be the pieces that we can pass onto our children because long after we’ve thrown away our particle board dresser, the same thing made by Lane fifty years ago will still be holding its own and doing it with more style and sophistication. Plus, chances are, no one will come over to your house for dinner and say, “Hey, I have that same exact lamp!”
We know that no one wants to spend money unnecessarily, and if y’all had the time to scout out all of the thrift stores and yard sales in town, you would. But that can be time-consuming and sometimes just downright icky, and you are busy! So, we sift through the junk and grab the gems, then clean and repair them so you don’t have to! If you’re handy, look for deals on items that we haven’t gotten around to fixing up yet. Quality, condition and many other factors determine price and vary with every individual piece.
So go ahead and pat yourself on the back for being so responsible. Why, you ask?
You are saving a lot of money compared to buying new. Your bank account thanks you. You are supporting a small business and keeping your money local. Your community and others who like having more options to shop than just the big box stores thank you. We thank you.
Yes, the Nest has video & print lookbooks. What is a lookbook you ask? Well, it’s a source of inspiration featuring items (vintage furniture, clothing, decor and more) that can be found at the Nest.
Did you know that you can shop the Nest online? Well, it’s true. If you’re not in the area, our hours don’t jive with your schedule, or you’re feeling lazy, fear not, online shopping is here!
