Name: Sheree Nichols

Name three words that describe you: Loyal, Determined, Creative.

What items do you specialize in? I specialize in vintage furniture and eclectic home decor.

What is your favorite place to source products? I love shopping in Pennsylvania; where I grew up!

What is your most prized possession that you've found over the years? I have this iron, scrolls, chippy gate from a home in Pennsylvania. If there was a tornado or other disaster, that’s the item I would grab before leaving my home!

Where do you find inspiration? I like looking through Pinterest, and through other antique booths. I also find a lot of inspiration in my friends’ homes.

How do you spend your time when you aren't at The NAT? I spend a lot of time helping my husband with his business. We also own a few AirBnBs, so we spend a lot of time remodeling and fixing those properties up for our guests!

What's your personal motto? I wouldn’t say that it’s my personal motto, but it’s something that speaks to me right now: “No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.” - PT Barnum

Side Table

You can use side tables for just about anything! Why not fix up the perfect drink station on your patio? Throw in some fun barware and lanterns and you’re in business!

Napkin Rings

If you’re hosting a more formal event, place settings are a fun way to incorporate a little extra style. Vintage napkin rings are a little touch to make the party feel a little more special.

Stoneware

Trade in your traditional dishes for something more unique. You can find vintage stoneware dining sets at The NAT, or even commission a set made by a local potter!

Keep It Fresh

Fresh berries are a great addition to any table top! They’re easy to snack on, or add to your celebratory glass of champagne! You can even place them in a glass bowl to show off those summery colors.

Etched Glass

If you have ever been in The NAT, you know that we are big fans of etched glass! They add a little something special to your everyday drinkware. You can find beautifully ornate etched pieces or even something simple and dainty.

Seating

One of the big trends in weddings is mix/match chairs. We’re here to tell you that it doesn’t only have to happen at a big event. The mix added to your home or patio makes everything a little more interesting!

Mason Jars

Are you hosting family friends with young kiddos? You can pre-make some tasty drinks ahead of time that the kids are sure to love! And if you aren’t hosting kids, we love to throw in some homemade sangria!

Mix It Up

Mixing and matching different vintage styles gives off a very eclectic vibe. Find a color palette you love and mix in different vintage pieces to complete the look!

Go Green

Flower arrangements and plants give you the extra oomph you’re looking for! We love planting new florals and cacti in vintage planters and vases.

Have Fun!

Entertaining can sometimes feel stressful, so it’s important to always remember to enjoy yourself. If you didn’t want to hang with your friends and family, you wouldn’t host a party. Take a load off, make yourself a drink, and enjoy the party.
