Local Shopping: Sparrow’s Nest Consignment

June 23, 2014

Local Shopping Sparrow's Nest Consignment

It has been such a pleasure to get to know Tammy Sparrow Kline of Sparrow’s Nest Consignment.  She has one of the most fun shops that I love to frequent in my neck of the woods.  They carry a wide range of styles of home furnishings and decor that never disappoints.  Recently, Tammy and “Co-Chick” Lindsey Palmer have moved The Nest just right around the corner from the previous shop on Gothard and Warner.  So without further ado, I present the new and larger Sparrow’s Nest.

With her signature mellow music and birds chirping peacefully in the background, you know you are in a special place.  More funky boutique, you realize right away that this is not your typical consignment shop.  You are welcomed with a warm greeting and unique merchandise that is cleverly displayed.  Two bluebirds painted on a large tree mural makes me smile as I have a healthy obsession with that bird myself.

As usual, I was drooling at all the inventory.  So let me start off by showing you all I found with this absolutely to-die-for metal bouquet of flowers side table.  I love how it pops off the teal blue wall.  And it’s just the way I like it, just a little rusty and chipped, and with cool vintage color!

Map Wall Art

A large coastal map hanging on the wall is waiting to be the perfect art piece for a Southern California home.  I swooned over a stack of vintage suitcases that would be perfect for a side table next to a tufted wingback chair.

Wire Hot Air Balloon

Oh, it doesn’t end there, be still my heart, it is a metal hot air balloon basket.  Yes, my darling, you are coming home with me!  So Anthropologie.  Having a bit of a love affair with both painted and wood furniture, I just could not get over a round coffee table that boasts both weathered wood (LOVE!) & distressed painted stripes (DOUBLE LOVE!!).

Vintage Mirror

Vintage mirrors are so chic and could easily fit into many styles.  I especially love the convex oval mirror that is so beautifully distressed.

As I mentioned, I love painted furniture and Tammy introduced me to Pickers Cottage Paints that she has in the shop.  They create a lovely matte finish and it covers with ease.  I certainly want to try this paint out on a future project.  Also, Tammy mentioned to me that she does offer custom finishing, so if you find a piece you like, but want it painted, let her know.

Working with clients that want to incorporate vintage and previously owned pieces into their interior designs, it is no surprise why I like shopping at Sparrow’s Nest for them.  If you are interested in design services using items from Sparrow’s Nest Consignment, please contact me at janeane@janeanepittman.com.  I would love to work with you on a personal style for your home.
