A visit to "Nesting" in Concord, MA...

Good morning to all. I hope that you had a great weekend.

As promised, I wanted to share a little about a great store that I visit each summer when we go up to New England. It is in Concord, MA, and I love to go there because it is a lovely and historical town. (One of its most prominent citizens was Ralph Waldo Emerson. Other notable residents and/or natives were Louisa May Alcott, Henry David Thoreau, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. Maybe I would become a better writer if I moved there!)

In any case, one of my stores of choice is Nesting. Up until recently, it was called Nesting on Main, but the name changed after a slight change in ownership. I first visited this store a couple of years ago after seeing it featured in one of the Somerset issues (I think it was Somerset Life). If you are ever up that way, do stop in as you won't want to miss it. The owner is wonderful and allowed me to snap these pictures, which will pretty much say it all about this fine shop!












I bought this wonderful framed beach

...and this beautiful bottle with a
gorgeous crystal bird stopper...


And here is a close-up of the top...


Doesn't this store just make your heart sing? On my next post I will share with you the other store in Concord that I like to visit.

I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by.

    1. I know what you mean. I wanted to spend all day there, but I was afraid of finding too much. What I really wanted was that beautiful piece of leaded glass that you see in the third photo. This vignette is what grabbed your attention as soon as you walked in the front door.
