I attended the auction last year and it was fun time. (I did learn that leaning over and hugging people with a glass of red wine can be trouble!) My friends bid on and won a day on a sailboat and my husband and I were fortunate enough to be invited to go with them on the sail. There were many great auction items and I won a Starbucks basket. Mark the date and plan to attend!
I have a special place in my heart for Renton History Museum which is housed in the former Renton Fire Department main headquarter station located at Mill Ave. So. I met my husband Mike back in 1972 and he was a firefighter for the Renton Fire Department. I would come and visit him on shift during our "dating years" and have some great memories at this great old building. Mike had a great career at the Renton Fire Department and retired this past September as Battalion Chief after 38 years. This building is now home to the Renton History Museum which is a wonderful museum and has amazing exhibits throughout the year. If you have not visited the museum, I highly recommend it. One of the great displays they are exhibiting currently is the old Fey's Roxy Theater Neon Sign. That also brings back great memories of my childhood and teen years and the many afternoons and evenings spent at the Roxy!

We are Sue and Melanie and the owners of Feathered Nest (914 S. 3rd Street) in Renton, Washington. Feathered Nest is an eclectic mix of vintage and new items. We became friends several years ago when Melanie was partners with another person at another shop here in town. I was working part time in yet another shop and Melanie and her partner asked if I would be willing to work for them while they were on vacation. I agreed and started working in their shop more regularly. As time went on I was asked to become a partner in their shop. We all worked for over 5 years and finally Melanie and I decided we would like to branch off and open our own business. With alot of planning and sleepness nights we finally opened in November of 2006. If you are in town, stop by and say hello or visit our website at http://www.featherednestinteriors.com We look forward to hearing from you!
