Feather Your Nest Home Dcor & More might be considered a mini consortium with its three owners and seven members, all of whom provide special merchandise and expertise.

Owners Sue Butler, Dottie Nord, and Martha VanderZanden, explained the concept behind the store.

"This is a co-op owned and operated by local businesswomen. There are currently seven members who bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and styles to the store," Nord explained.

The seven members, in addition to the three owners, include Cora Robinson, Nikki White, Maggie Free, Joyce Higbee and Marceyne Sharp together in one membership. There is a fee for each membership.

Each of the members provides displays from a specific expertise and point of view, including "shabby chic," French country, vintage, collectibles, and garden dcor.

A visitor to the establishment must be sure to visit every nook and cranny not to miss something special.

Treasures for the style-conscious are available in the clothing boutique area, including vintage and jewelry. The baby section offers an ever-expanding line of specialties for the wee ones.

Throughout the store, small boutiques include crystals for beading, a mini craft store for those into scrapbooks and paper arts, sewing and needlework crafts and supplies, tea pots and specialty teas, sachets and more, plus fabulous furniture finds, antiques or faux antiques, for those looking for something to fill a special niche.

In addition to offering this great array of goodies, the women will be having classes and demonstrations for the uninitiated looking for new inspiration for creativity.

The shop, located downstairs in the historic Central Building, is filled with energy, enthusiasm, fragrance, and an amazing collection of interesting items. "We seek out the most unique and affordable gifts and home dcor items for our clients," Butler said.

"We offer courtesy gift wrap, and we're a ‘secret sister' drop-off point, as well as a place to come just to chat," VanderZanden said.

Future plans, in addition to art and craft classes, include tea luncheons, and other entertainments. A browsing customer said, "It's a fun place."

The members encourage visitors to drop in any Monday through Saturday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. or Sunday between noon and 4 p.m. to experience a totally different type of merchandising. The stated motto of the establishment is "Let us do the hunting for you."

  • Alibaba surges 38 percent on massive demand in market debut
    Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's (BABA.N) shares soared 38 percent in their first day of trading on Friday as investors jumped at the chance for a piece of what is likely to rank as the largest IPO in history, in a massive bet on China's burgeoning middle class. It was an auspicious debut for the Chinese e-commerce company, which was founded by Jack Ma in his apartment in 1999 and now accounts for 80 percent of online sales in China. About 100 people gathered outside the New York Stock Exchange at Wall and Broad Streets, many of them Chinese tourists with cameras, and they cheered and snapped photos when Ma exited the building with the kung fu star Jet Li. Some 271 million shares changed hands, more than double the turnover on Twitter Inc's (TWTR.N) first day last year, although still short of volume for the General Motors Co (GM.N) and Facebook Inc (FB.O) IPOs.
  • Wall St. flat as Oracle takes air out of Alibaba debut
    Alibaba (BABA.N) took the spotlight after its initial public offering priced at $68 a share and rose as high as $99.70 before ending the session up 38 percent to $93.89. Shares of Yahoo (YHOO.O), which is selling part of its Alibaba stake but will remain a top shareholder, were volatile in heavy volume and closed down 2.7 percent at $40.93. "Alibaba was awesome. The Alibaba deal was done correctly, which is, you leave something on the table for investors to enjoy," said Phil Orlando, chief equity market strategist at Federated Investors in New York.
  • When music stops for Oracle CEO dance, Catz may grab Ellison's chair : analysts
    If Larry Ellison sailed off on his yacht for good tomorrow, who would really run Oracle Corp (ORCL.N)? Reuters asked a cast of Wall Streets analysts, and the verdict is dealmaker and finance guru Safra Catz. The question is on investors' minds after Ellison, 70, promoted both Catz and sales leader Mark Hurd to the CEO position on Thursday, while taking on the role of executive chairman and chief technology officer himself. Of 12 analysts who replied to an anonymous poll, five said Catz would likely run Oracle, while only one voted for Hurd, 57.
