THANK YOU for 10 years of supporting a local, female-owned business and for caring about community and a sustainable lifestyle.

The Nest is lovingly owned, curated and operated by Tessa Dee Miller. 

THAT’S ME! I am a mom, wife, avid upcycler, die-hard DIYer and a hardworking, multi-tasking busy bee of an entrepreneur. 

I LOVE WHAT I DO. I genuinely enjoy a long day of digging up forgotten treasures, cleaning them, setting them up in cozy vignettes and helping people discover them again so that they may start a new life in a happy and appreciative home. This is not just my job. This is my lifestyle.

IT’S IMPORTANT. The Nest is a small vintage store with a big heart and an even bigger footprint in our local community. It houses pieces of our past, aims to educate and fight against planned obsolescence, and fosters community and sustainability through healthy business practices.

WHEN I’M NOT IN THE SHOP trying to encourage the world to shop small, local and to ‘stop throwing things away,’ you might find me reading stories to my rambunctious 3 year old, hiking with my handsome hubby or fishing with my dad.

WHEN I NEED SOME SELF-CARE TIME the homebody side of me enjoys yoga, gardening and cooking a healthy, delicious meal. The old granny side of me loves sitting by the fire knitting, while the adventure side of me loves traveling the world.
