Vintage Nest began with my passion for scouring the antique markets on weekends for that unusual find - - the thrill of the hunt! Along the way I realized that I wanted to spend more and more time re-purposing my finds and expressing my inner desire to be creative.
By early 2006 I had accumulated well over two storage units full of furniture and home accessories from my antique explorations. Not to mention that we could no longer park our 2 cars in the garage because this too was overflowing with my finds.
Having spent over 20 years in the advertising business and no longer being challenged by my job I decided to incorporate my passion for vintage inspired furnishings into my everyday life by establishing Vintage Nest. Vintage Nest gives me the opportunity to share my passion with others who enjoy decorating their homes with elegant, time-worn pieces.
A mother of two small children with a growing volunteer schedule I knew Vintage Nest would have to satisfy my need to explore my dream as well as maintain a balanced home life.
In the beginningVintage Nest only opened its doors to the public one weekend per month.Customers were notified by postcard of upcoming sales as well as email announcements. In September 2011 Vintage Nest moved to The Glen Town Center and is now open 7 days a week.
