About Us

The Nest was founded in 2015, by husband and wife team Robin & Vicki, as a shop that would provide a marketplace for small, local, handmade and craft businesses to sell their items on the high street.  As someone who had spent years traveling the country doing Vintage & Handmade Fairs, Vicki thought it would be a welcome opportunity for local craftspeople to have their items on view and available year round.

Situated on the High Street in picturesque Rugby Town Centre, we have a small frontage; but, once you're inside, the shop expands Tardis-like in order to house the 30-plus local crafters we currently stock.

We stock an ever changing array of handmade items, vintage curiosities, vintage & retro clothes, and upcycled furniture, as well as being proud stockists of Frenchic Paint.
