About The Nest:
We don’t like to be limited, so we carry anything that catches our eye. We love furniture, decor, clothing and jewelry, but don’t be surprised to find collectible 50s highball glasses, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band on vinyl, 60s gossip magazines, cowboy boots, original artwork, and pretty much anything else we come across that has a story, character, a sense of humor, or is just plain awesome.
About RISE: The Reno Initiative for Shelter and Equality is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Reno, Nevada. Our initiative is to cultivate a greater sense of dignity and humility by providing equal access to shelter, knowledge, and opportunity. We seek to create a stronger community through the use of shared resources and mutual aid.
