I so appreciate Linda having me here as a guest today. I think she said I get a free weekend at her beach condo if I would write a blog post on the shop I sell in and share it with her readers....You said that.... right Linda? ....... just teasing folks. :) My name is Lynn and I am the owner of The Vintage Nest.com. I am so delighted to be here today! Please let me tell you a little about the wonderful shop that I get to display and sell my vintage, antique, and hand crafted wares.
Located in Richmond, Va., on Staples Mill Rd., right next to the Amtrak train Station, the owners Tony & Marc, have created a magical wonderland with delights for the eye everywhere you turn. I was invited to share a space and grabbed the chance. Fabulous vignettes are scattered all throughout featuring total rooms, giving you wonderful ideas on how to decorate your own home. Mona, another partner, makes the most unique fabulous lighting from old found objects and has a beautiful artist's creative hand. Having been featured in Romantic Homes magazine, the guys also have started a Vintage Home Market twice a year, which has become quite successful. Only open twice a month, for two, 4 day weekends, it's an ever changing array of fascinating, fun and funky merchandise. They also offer design services and have just recently created their own line of chalk paint, called the Painted Nest.
So now let me show you some features from the warehouse.
