THE SHOP

Whether your home’s style is farmhouse, nautical or Paris chic, Mount Vernon’s Re-Feather Your Nest has the perfect finishing touches for any well-designed room. In addition to decor accessories and wall hangings, it has one-of-a-kind, reclaimed furniture and reupholstered seating.

THE ATMOSPHERE

The airy space bathes in natural light from oversized skylights. It’s the kind of store made for ambling along the well-worn wooden floors, admiring all the pretty objects styled in the store’s many vignettes.

KEY PEOPLE

Linda Freed opened Re-Feather Your Nest seven years ago. She also owns the area’s three Calico Cupboard Cafe & Bakery locations and Seeds Bistro and Bar in La Conner. Freed is a busy woman, leaving merchandise manager Darli Lund-Parks
to run the store. Lund-Parks hunts for inventory at trade shows and checks out local artists for unique finds. A designer for 25 years, she’s encountered most decorating challenges and is ready to assist customers.

WHAT YOU’LL FIND

Re-Feather Your Nest has both consigned and new items. It is the place to go for that finishing touch your decor is missing. It has items suitable for most styles. In the nautical display, check out the oyster shell chandelier and wooden boats. Farmhouse decor includes rustic signs and colorful paintings of livestock. You can also pick up clothing like super-soft tees and ultra-soft, ultra- durable vintage flannel shirts. Garden lovers can buy a new birdhouse or potting table. If you’re looking for a gift, pick up a La Vela Candle and an accompanying card with a witty saying. There’s also an assortment of vintage silverware in case you’re hosting a large dinner party.

STAFF FAVORITE

Lund-Park can’t resist the sheep portrait paintings and the oversized wall clock. She also loves their collection of signs with warm, snappy sayings like “Make Yourself at Home” and “We Should Probably Cuddle.” The signs are a top- selling item, possibly because customers feel the same way Lund-Park does. “I love them. They’re just happy.”
