Weekend Finds: Nest.

I was cruising past one of my very favorite haunts in the city, Nest, this weekend when I saw this beautiful ghost-like window display. I just had to share it, and also popped in and snapped a few more photos for show and tell while I was there. Nest is quite like a French flea market with lots of multi-cultural, cosmopolitan flair. The shop carries gorgeous home decor accessories with a unique, vintage look, all found under one Fillmore Street roof.

Nest has great coffee table books, the most beautiful vintage furnishings, delicate etched glassware, soaps and candles, colorful, bohemian and luxurious bedding, quilts, pillows and hand knit throws, in French, Moroccan, Indian, Chinese and a variety of other ethnic styles. A wonderful spot to pick up unusual, one of a kind gifts.


Nest is definitely one of those places that's truly unique and just a great place to visit, even if it's just for the eye candy and the loads of inspiration you'll find. There's everything you weren't expecting, including lots of kitschy Parisian knickknacks and souvenirs, girly jewelry and feminine clothing and accessories, all gathered on buying trips from around the world including Paris, London, the Far East and even our local flea markets. Definitely a must see on your next visit to San Francisco.

Nest is one of my favorite haunts too. When I lived inn the city I visited at least 1x or 2x a month. The creative decor & displays really make me feel like I'm in Paris. I lose all sense of time & place.

I also picked up a few trinkets over the years that were well-priced and have since become cherished treasures.

Ah, what a nice diversion on this Monday-after-a-holiday morning.

Nest is my favorite store in San Fran! Thanks for showing. I was there last month and honestly could wander in their every day for inspiring finds.
