Christmas at The Nest Egg

Tis the season as we decorate the shop with favorites and collectibles for all ages. Trees with wonderful old ornaments are to be expected, but we also look to nature and our collections for inspiration in our displays. A rose embellished tree is enhanced with chandelier prisms, decorative old keys and old ornaments, or a traditional red and green tree with vintage ornaments displays old baby shoes or old clock faces. The Steiff tree is back because of the popularity last year of the vintage cats with yarn balls and mittens. This year’s tree is a zoo tree featuring Steiff vintage mohair animals and new Hansa originals, animals described as “portraits of nature.” With all of our trees we hope to inspire our shoppers to use their own special collections as an added touch to add warmth and reminders of fond memories in celebrating the holidays.

Our holiday florals, fruits and pastries are not real, but they will fool the most critical eye to take a second look. The antique treasures and new finds at market are wonderful additions to enhance décor, and they also make excellent gifts. Come and visit us for your holiday decorating ideas and gift selections at The Nest Egg.
