Do you hold any special events at your store? Because we are located in a tourist resort, the majority of our customer base lives outside of the area. So Feather Your Nest does not do special events alone. We are located in a Victorian-themed shopping village and as a whole we have in the past and plan to put on events such as Victorian Fair, Ice Cream Social, Sidewalk Sale (to coincide with city-wide yard sale weekend), and Christmas shopping events.

Is shopping indie and small businesses important to you? If so, why? Absolutely! Besides feeling like a total hypocrite for not reciprocating by shopping with other indie businesses, I just know that I'm going to have a better experience every time. The quality of products and the customer service are always exceedingly higher with an indie/small business.

Anything else you would like to add? In February 2008 we were honored to have our store featured in the "Shopkeeping" feature of Romantic Homes magazine and in November 2005 our online store was listed in the "Best of the Web" section of InStyle magazine. We've also had numerous products featured in national magazines and prominent web sites.
