The Vintage Nest

This weekend we visited family in gorgeous Bellingen. It’s such a beautiful part of the world! And while we were there I was very exited to visit The Vintage Nest. I had been hearing good things about this little shop and had been looking forward to visiting for such a long time. Coffee, cake and shelves stacked with vintage? Oh, yes please! We had a lovely time rummaging through the treasures and sipping lattes. I couldn’t really think of a nicer way to while away an afternoon…

    Most definitely a great way to spend an afternoon. I love the blackboard saying “Vintage Nest Loves You”, I think I love Vintage Nest. The other day we were driving not far from home and drove past a quaint looking vintage shop. Unfortunately we were on our way out with no time to spare for a quick stop. I am looking forward to going back and having a little look. x

      Oh, I hate when we drive past somewhere that looks lovely but don’t have time to stop or the place is closed! So frustrating. I hope you get a chance to get visit the cute vintage shop soon! xx

    Bellingen is such a lovely place! The markets that they have are fantastic too. I haven’t been for such a long time but I also have family there and should probably visit again soon =)

      It’s one of my very favourite places! Though I haven’t been to the markets in years and years… Next time we visit I’ll defnitely have to squeeze in a trip to the markets! 🙂

    I know I’m very late commenting but just had to share my love for this store too! Many, many years ago my ancestors owned this store (when it was a grocery store) and I love to visit and imagine them working in this lovely space. They used to have an old black & white photo of them near the front window. We still own the family farm nearby and every holidays we make sure to squeeze in a trip to Bello and the Vintage Nest. Good coffee too 🙂
