In Hidden Places

I have passed by this place a hundred times and never knew it existed. Sometimes all we notice is the big box office actors when the supporting actors can offer just as much value to the big picture. I decided to stop and take notice.
I opened the door and was greeted with a jolly hello and the warmest smile. He introduced himself as Vern and the owner of "The Nest".He has so many unique items - especially for those of us who like the mid-century modern design. Here are a few of those great finds:

1970's Pagoda chairs and whats awesome about these is that they swivel. Price $60 for both.

This chair $20...great in a modern living room space or office.

Credenza and 2 nightstands $250. The credenza could be used as a buffet. Would love to have this piece for my house : )

Blue Mid-Century Modern chair $50. I absolutely adore this chair.

So go see Vern and his wife Cindy at

The Nest

218 E. State St.

Rockford, Il 61104

It's in those hidden places that you'll find the most valuable things.


  1. I LOVE that blue chair!! Maybe I'll drop in before we move! :)

  2. They are only open from Wed-Sat 12-6pm. Great place.

  3. I LOVE that chair too...maybe you'll think of Kentucky from time to time when you sit in it, Courtney...since it IS!
