Nest Feathers featured as Business of the Month, Cowboy Homecoming Queen applications available

Chamber Chats

Each month, the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce highlights a member business deserving of special recognition. The June recipient of the Business of the Month award is Nest Feathers.

Located in the “heating up” historic downtown Pleasanton area, Nest Feathers Fine Gifts & Home Décor occupies a charming, circa 1870’s building on North Main Street. The downstairs portion of the store offers a wide variety of imaginative gifts and classy home décor, displayed on vintage furnishings. The upstairs is home to “objects de ranch,” as well as kitchen items, a baby boutique and a clearance room. Owner Cindy Carr is enthusiastic about the momentum going on downtown – with the new community center under way, and once-empty buildings now being purchased and updated. New shops like Art on Main and new restaurants like Spork in the Road are bringing an exciting energy to the heart of old downtown. Says Carr: “We all try to complement each other in ways that we can benefit from one another’s strengths and energy to bring excitement and vibrancy to downtown.” Carr is most proud, however, of her wonderful staff, whom she considers to be family. These “Nest Feathers chicks” include Ginny Mross, Jane Stewart, Christi Mills, Arlene Zamora, Lois Tymrak, and Amy Porter. It is because of these wonderful ladies that folks always leave with a smile. And the Chicks send this message: Come on by… we’d love to meet you! The Chamber of Commerce is proud to have Nest Feathers as a member and congratulates them on the Business of the Month award.
