nest fest stanco


One of the dreams I had when we moved out here to this property involved banjo music, food trucks, a white barn full of comfy seats and lots of amazing, talented creative vendors with handmade, vintage, and lovely things for your home and life.

And this dream is finally coming true!!! We are hosting a Nest Fest!

Consider this your invitation to come hang out on our 13 acres #AtTheWhiteBarn in Midland, NC with fellow beauty hunters, we’ll eat yummy food and you can shop for beauty for your home and life from a selection of gloriously curated vendors!!

We’re having the Nest Fest on Saturday October 22nd, rain or shine 10ish-5ish (but the exact times aren’t quiet set in stone yet so don’t hold me to it!) Tickets will go on sale at a later date and will also be available at the door.

I’m so excited to share some of my FAVORITE makers, pickers, artists, farmers and shop owners with you! We have over 40 vendors coming!


This is just a tiny example of a few of our vendors–Created Beautifully & Angela Statzer and remember how I’ve been picking and collecting and beauty hunting like mad? It’s so I can have a huge booth full of pretties for your home at the Nest Fest!

The White Barn will be ready for you to hang out, sit and relax and enjoy the country surroundings. Vendors and food trucks will be sprinkled around the property. October is just lovely out here, here’s hoping for perfect weather!
