Nest Vintage Living is a shop inspired by everything that is 'country living'. We believe in finding beautiful pieces that you won't see in every shop on the high street, favouring small often British (sometimes Welsh!) companies. Of course, we also have just the right amount of quirky, original and vintage pieces thrown to the mix! 

I have always had a passion for rifling through flea markets and a love of the gorgeous chocolate-box boutiques you find in the Cotswolds. I wanted to create my own stylish boutique that would cater for people looking to decorate their own homes in the country style and of course those who are looking for unique and beautiful gifts. In other words, all the things I needed in Cardiff, but couldn't find anywhere!

Rhiwbina, a green and leafy suburb in Cardiff was the perfect place to start my business (ad)venture; it has a warm, village feel whilst being 10 minutes away from the M4! In 2014, when I was looking for a bigger premises I really didn't want to leave the village, and so we moved literally across the road to our new bigger shop in Brook House. 

Just like a home, Nest has different rooms, each with its own character... When you reach our blue door, you enter into the heart of our shop, with our beautiful collections of jewellery from Joma, Blaze and Tutti & Co, as well as a fabulous collection of scarves and handbags. Our main shop room also features our 'Cwtch Corner' where you will find our range of Melin Tregwynt Welsh blankets as well as home fragrances from St Eval and Woodwick, and the fabulous Newgate Clocks. 

'The Pantry' is filled to the brim with kitchenware and gardening products and includes, among others, Cornishware, Garden Trading enamelware, RICE melamine, Falconware enamel and welsh slate gifts. 

Then further into the Nest labyrinth you will find our 'Little Nest' room, with lots of gifts for babies and children.  We have beautiful gifts for new borns, christenings and baby showers as well as a gorgeous collection of clothes, soft toys, books, blankets and nursery accessories. Here are a few of the designers we stock: Belle & Boo, Moulin Roty, Bob and Blossom, Blade & Rose leggings and Orange Tree toys.  At the very back of the shop, our tucked away 'Potting Shed' is packed with beautiful stationery and quirky books.

Nest is also an authorised stockist of Autentico Paints, a range of chalk based paints and waxes from Europe. The easy to use paints in muted, natural colours are ideal for creating the softly aged look on furniture that is so popular. 

We hope that through our website you get a flavour of Nest. If you get the opportunity, do come and see us. We'd love to show you around.
