Shop Talk with The Vintage Nest

  I wanted to do a regular series on my blog, something unique that hasn't been done before. I came up with an idea to feature small shops, that are located throughout the country. So, every Friday you can stop by and check out a new shop, and at the same time meet the owner. Some weeks, I will be sharing some wonderful vendors that set up at vintage style shows. I am hoping that this series will introduce you to some shops and shows, that you might not already know about, and better yet, they might be in driving distance for you, wouldn't that be nice? This week it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to Lynn from THE VINTAGE NEST! So, grab a tall glass of lemonade and let's see what Lynn has to share with us today.

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   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.

If you visit you will see:

Lynn has always had some of the best stuff! And she has always taken good care of me when I ordered things from her. Love her space and the shop she is in.

Hi Linda,
Great choice to feature Lynn. I have gotten to know Lynn in blogland and she is so sweet and I hope her and I meet some day. She has a son and family that live near me. I think though I might want to go her way and check out that great shopping market she is in. Way cool and awesome treasures. I already saw three or four things I might need LOL! Have a great week end.
