“ Debi and Mimi are the two gorgeous co-owners, mother and daughter, that really know how to run a gorgeous boutique. I love that this shop is full of Nevada pride. There are so many unique and eclectic pieces such as kitchen and home goods/items, towels, cookie mixes, chocolates, accessories (from jewelry, wallets, sunglasses, and watches), water bottles, t-shirts, hats, trailer hooks, ect.” – Justine F.

The Nest

“The Nest is more than just a fantastic vintage shopping location.  Tessa (the owner) also enjoys bringing people together for various classes and the furniture setup in front is perfect for everyone to learn together… The store itself holds so many hidden treasures for your home decor/entertaining needs and closet.  The prices are certainly reasonable for the quality of the vintage items and they hold sales for different parts of the store regularly.” – Casey S.

Natural Selection

“This place is a great discovery and I’m definitely coming back! I came in this afternoon for a graduation present for a friend and the price for this beauty was definitely within the budget and a great present. I made a terrarium with 2 small $5 plants and a $9 container. The person who helped me was very helpul–gave me tips and advice on how to take care and pot my plant. This purchase was definitely worth it.” – Jem C

The Basement

Home to a multitude of local makers like Sugar Love Chocolates, Pantry Products, Tahoe Nevada Love, Beautiful Bearded Man, and many more, The Basement is a one stop shop for holiday gift giving and a sweet spot to hang too!

“The basement is such a neat location in Reno to really just enjoy time with friends and family! It’s so fun to roam the basement to check out the shops& to help encourage local businesses to grow and stay in our area!” – Sheena B

Home Means Nevada Co

“What a charming little store. Very clean and organized with a Ton of NV and Reno clothing, Hats and misc fun stuff… They have only been open for a few months , but seem to have the places stocked with seasonally relevant stuff. One of my biggest pet peeves is walking into a store that has nothing I can wear right then. This place nailed it! From T-shirts to tank tops… they have what you’re looking for.” – Jennifer B.
