Jackie Donley - Owner & Designer
Jackie, owner and founder of The Neighborhood Nest, started her journey in 2015 when she began to hand craft, solder and design jewelry. After many years of taking her product to countless fall festivals, Christmas open houses and pop up home shops, Jackie decided to take the plunge and open her own store front. After searching for the right location, Jackie found her home right here in her home town and The Neighborhood Nest was born, fall of 2018. Since opening we have put together a dazzling team of local designers who would love to assist you in styling any space, provide advice and tips/tricks for you and your home and can always collaborate on design or everyday accent decor and gifts.

Laura is a South Carolina native but has lived most of her adult life well north of the Mason Dixon Line. Summer of 2019 brought her family back to her southern roots when they settled in Woodstock. She and her husband Herb are busy raising two teenagers, Olivia and Clay. Laura was thrilled to discover The Neighborhood Nest shortly after their move to the area and honored to join the team as they entered the holiday season. Being a musician has given Laura a creative flair as well as an appreciation for artistic beauty in many aspects of life, including home decor. She loves to listen and learn a customer's style and then make suggestions on enhancing a space while, if applicable, working with pieces the customer already has. She also enjoys helping customers choose the perfect gift for any occasion AND sending them off with a beautifully wrapped package!
