About Us

Handmade, Canadian items
created by artists who adore animals!

Nest is the Canadian handmade gift shop for animal lovers,
in the heart of Hamilton on Locke St. We offer a carefully curated
collection of Canadian artists who craft everything such as
fine art, whimsical prints, jewellery, kitchenware, clothes,
baby items and toys for both kids and pets.

The curator of Nest is local gal,
Robyn Allan

Robyn loves animals; both domesticated and wild,
as well as artists; both talented and creative.


She has worked many different aspects of retail and has
managed stores for over 13 years, both in large corporate settings
and small independent boutiques. She truly enjoys creating
a positive experience for visitors, where they can shop with the
knowledge that they are supporting Canadian artists as well
as finding the perfect gift.


Robyn is a Hamiltonian and a proud Mother of several pet
kids -- three dogs; Django, Pixel, Mya, two cats, one lizard
and a human kid, Morgana.
