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."

  • Europe stocks stumble, dollar lifted by U.S rate view
    European shares fell in thin trade on Monday while the dollar powered ahead after U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen indicated that the central bank was poised to raise interest rates this year. Investor concerns about Greece's debt problems and a poor regional and local election result by Spain's ruling People's Party also weighed on the euro and European shares. The pull-back in European stocks mirrored losses on Wall Street on Friday after Yellen suggested the Fed was ready to act if the economy kept improving as expected, though a raft of recent data has suggested it is growing only modestly in the second quarter.
  • Regulation should be main tool against bubbles: Fed's Mester
    Central bankers should be aware of the potentially destabilizing effects of super-easy policy on financial systems, a top U.S. Federal Reserve official said on Monday, even if monetary policy should not be used as a main tool to prevent bubbles. "I would opt to use the macroprudential tools as the first line of defense, since they can be more targeted to the markets and institutions where the risks are emerging," Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester said in remarks prepared for delivery to the annual conference in of the Financial Intermediation Research Society, a group she helped found, meeting in Reykjavik, Iceland.
  • Oil prices steady as firm demand offsets dollar strength
    Crude oil futures edged up on Monday as firm global demand vied with a strong dollar, but a public holiday in the United States and much of Europe kept trading muted. Front-month Brent crude gained 6 cents to $65.43 a barrel by 1400 GMT, after touching an intraday low of $64.72. U.S. crude was down 30 cents at $59.42 a barrel, after reaching $59.10 earlier in the session.
