The Nest on High Street has everything for every occasion
The Nest is an arcade of wonders. Stocked full of large and small gifts, all hand-made and mostly from the Rugby area. Opened in November last year, it’s a one-stop-shop for craft lovers, gift buyers, and furnishing aficionados.
Owner Vicki Corrigan’s idea was to launch a craft and vintage shop, with a craft fair charm, which traded to the High Street shopper. Since opening, the shop has traded with some of the best crafts people in the area, all vying to display and sell their unique hand-made products in The Nest’s allotted display cabinets.
