Welcome to our first posting on The Nest Egg's blog! We're new to blogging and are excited to have a way of bringing you information on what's new in our stores and in home decorating. We realize time is tight for everyone these days so we'll try to bring the store to you as much as we can and keep you posted so you're up to date on new merchandise, trends and promotions.

For those of you who haven't yet visited our stores, a quick synopsis of who we are: The Nest Egg is owned by Sean & Ann O'Shields. We both grew up in the Northern Virginia area, went to school in Virginia and came back here to live. We opened our first store in Fairfax almost 4 1/2 years ago and have so enjoyed getting to know our customers. We opened our second location in Brambleton, VA (near Ashburn in Loudoun County) in March of this year. We have a wonderful group of individuals that work for us in both stores.

Our focus is providing quality merchandise along with superior customer service. We carry multiple furniture lines that are made in the U.S. and completely customizable. You can purchase pieces right off our sales floor or work with us to order a custom piece in the colors, sizes and finishes you desire. We also carry an extensive selection of imported pieces and home accessories including wall art, lighting, rugs, florals, bedding and more. Gift items include fabulous candles and diffusers, frames, tabletop items, books, etc. etc.

So welcome to our blog! Look out for more postings this week on what's new in the stores. I've been out for a few months on maternity leave (thank you for all of the well wishes we've received!) and am excited to be back and share what's new!

We'd love suggestions from you on what type of information we can bring to you so feel free to let us know.

  2. I love your stores (both FFX & Brambleton). So glad to see you now have a blog. I will be following it closely for the latest and greatest in home decor.
