After focusing her creativity for the past decade on her successful photography business, artist Kimberly Peck is now shifting her talents back into retail and opening Nest :: mother child home, in downtown Peterborough. Peck invites the community to Nest’s Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 4 Grove Street in Peterborough, NH. The Grand Opening includes raffles, prizes, and an official ribbon cutting ceremony at 12:30 pm, hosted by Peterborough Selectboard member, Barbara Miller.
Nest specializes in newborn clothing & accessories, toys & activities for children of all ages, thoughtful gifts for mothers, and hand-crafted home essentials. “We are, in large part, defined by our homes and our families and that is my inspiration for Nest,” says Peck. “I think it creates such joy to be able to choose what we surround ourselves with and what we give to others.”
Nest’s offerings include Farmhouse Pottery from Woodstock, VT, Erin Flett Home Designs from Maine, Milkbarn Kids clothing, Cate + Levi toys, Under the Nile Organics, MotherLove herbals, Plan Toys, Organic Farm Buddies, PlusPlus activities, and much more. “I’m very mindful about what I offer my customers,” says Peck. “My intention with Nest is to offer sustainably-made and of course, fun, products and to facilitate more economic activity in our local community.”
Peck closed her previous children’s shop, Precious Cargo, in 2010 after the birth of her third child. “While I found my photography to be completely fulfilling, I missed my store and the day to day connection with the community,” Peck shares. “Downtown Peterborough is vibrant and has so much to offer -- I’m thrilled to be a part of it again, and to offer my customers a bright and cheerful place to shop and visit.”
NEST is located at 4 Grove Street, across from the Peterborough Town Offices. Store hours will be Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call 603.567.7914
