Nest in Mystic at Christmas!


...and then we went to NEST
in Mystic


Wow! 
We walked in the door and didn't know which way to look first.
Every inch sparkled with holiday magic!





And beside all the wonderful Christmas decor...
...there were many antique and vintage treasures to be found!




        
       There were vintage typewriters, black and white transferware,
    old journals and wood drawers mixed in with new and interesting
           candles, faux greenery and gifts for everyone on your list! 


I was tempted to add to my wicker covered bottle collection.





So much inspiration to be found! 


 WHOooo wants to go shopping here?


And...oh...the beautiful and unique jewelry!
I am told that Marcia, the owner of this marvelous shop,
 also makes many of the jewelry pieces herself! 

 


 Loved the turquoise and silver ornaments...



The vintage golf trophy in back was fabulous!


Hotel silver and pretty vintage glass...


Cupboards of cookbooks, kitchen items, aprons and ribbons...
... and shelves of soft stuffies and sweet gifts



Wire and button stars...


 

And then there were lovely clothes and leather goods.
I spy something I brought home with me! 


In fact, I brought quite a few things home with me!

If you are anywhere near Mystic, Connecticut this holiday season...
...be sure to stop in to NEST

How's your holiday shopping going?
Did you shop small and local this year?

I was eyeing that trophy and scrolled down to see your comment....surprise, surprise! Gorgeous shop Laura. I'm sure you had a ball in there.
I am only buying vintage and small dealer items this year. It's something that I believe is very important to support and love the gifts that I have found thus far!
Happy holidays....!

It would take me a couple of hours to go through that shop! Just full of magic. What did you bring home. I have very little shopping to do and do it all at local stores and shops.

I love it, come and see my shoppingpost! Lovely dutch greetings

Chatelaine said...

That looks like a great shop! I think I would have spent all day there.

It looks very similar to Nesting on Main in Concord, Mass. Same type of merchandise and color scheme.

I did shop local. No mall shopping for me.
