Nest is a gift shop on the second floor at the Marketplace, the easy in-easy out shopping center, anchored by Starfish Market. Missie Hensel owns the store and has done all the buying during the two years she’s been open, next to the Mail Center. (Yea, Mail Center!!! Now offering three-month mailbox rentals for snowbirds.)
Hensel stocks tableware, napkin sets, candles, potpourri, and local
musicians’ CDs, that are perfect as hostess gifts, according to the St. John Source.
"It’s pretty much everything I like," Hensel explained. One of the
biggest challenges she’s faced in the business has been the high cost
of shipping the items she finds at trade shows to St. John. She’s in
the store six days a week; info at 340-715-2522.
