When we lived in Napa a few years ago, we found ourselves driving to San Francisco or Berkeley every single weekend because there just wasn't enough "there" there. It's funny how much things have changed since then. Witness Napa Nest, a new-ish, hip "retail philanthropy" space.
Ann Trinca and Norma Quintana say that they "have taken the urban aesthetic and mellowed it with a rural tinge of rust." The result? Half gallery, half consignment shop, plus hand-crafted pottery, jewelry, and accessories by local artists.

20% of Napa Nest's proceeds help build "Nest Egg" grants for artists.
The store's theme changes every two months. Most of these photos are from the recent show, "Natural History," except for the first one above the jump, which is from "Shanghai Chic."
