I woke up to a beautiful sunshining day and needed a Farmer's Market fix so I headed to Issaquah at Pickering Barn. While browsing through the various stalls I noticed a young boy playing his violin. I overheard his dad say he was trying to raise money to attend a music camp this summer. He was very good for his age and there were many people stopping to listen to him play and add money to his open case. I wish him luck!
The market was buzzing with people since it was such a sunny day and the flower vendors were the most popular tents. I'm sure many of the purchased bouquets will find their way to a mother's table tomorrow. It was fun to listen to the music and see so many carefree people out enjoying the day. From there I headed over to Trader Joe's. I love that store. I really wish Renton had a Trader Joe's. They have such a great selection of pre-made salads and sandwiches. Great for an impromptu picnic!Happy Mother's Day to all!
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!
