An adorable home decor and accessories store with a good cause

I was introduced to Nest a few weeks ago, and I finally got around to checking it out. Besides their products, the best thing about Nest is their mission:

"Nest is a nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the lives of women in developing countries. The mission of Nest is to support women artists and artisans in the developing world by helping them create sustainable entrepreneurial businesses. To do this, Nest provides micro-credit loans to be used for the purchase of the supplies and materials necessary to begin and/or maintain art or craft-based businesses."

I look forward to seeing what they have in the future as the companies grow! They also have a lot of cool, indie products by domestic designers.

Beautiful serving bowls from Mexico. The salsa bowls at the top were also featured in Domino.

Sweet little tea light holders

African baskets are always stunning

Pretty little tea towels.

Art for baby
I *LOVE* this bracelet. My sisters' pet name for me has always been Heart, so it's fitting. :)

A gorgeous cuff bracelet.

They also carry a lot of really pretty stationary

I always use handmade soaps - they are much nicer for your skin and last a really long time. Nest has a huge selection.

What an amazing concept. I am going to visit their site right now (or maybe after work) but thanks for this great post. It feels so great to be giving back and helping women less fortunate than us. I love those coral print pillows and the stationary is fabulous. :D

Wow, great selection and blog.

I'm a poor college student, and desperately need homeowners to take this survey:

It'll take no more than 10 minutes. Please! Thanks!
