Robyn’s Nest receives Peoria mayor’s award


Mayor Cathy Carlat awarded Robyn’s Nest as the Mayor’s Business of the Month for November 2019.

When you walk in the doors at Robyn’s Nest, you may find yourself lingering at the entrance, your senses captivated. An amazing aroma drifts through the air, a combination of scents unlike any other. Custom-made chandeliers suspend from the ceiling, inspirational and unique art decorate the walls, while tables are adorned with artisan gifts and novelty items ranging from locally sourced candles to leather-bound books waiting to be filled with the next great story.

Robyn’s Nest opened in the shopping plaza at the southwest corner of Lake Pleasant Parkway and Happy Valley Road more than two years ago. Opening this boutique in the community that she calls home had always been the ultimate dream for owner and designer Robyn Halperin. Today, Ms. Halperin’s years of design experience are at work helping her customers create their perfect nest.

Robyn’s Nest offers unique home furnishings, home décor, wall art and wallpaper, lighting, books, gifts, seasonal holiday décor, and one-of-a-kind pieces. However, if you aren’t able to find what you’re looking for, don’t fret. Ms. Halperin said residents often bring in photos of the spaces they are looking to decorate, allowing her and her dedicated design team the chance to find the perfect piece. 

Ms. Halperin knows her clientele and hosts events to bring them together in a relaxed atmosphere, such as Ladies Night – Sip and Shop. Supporting local businesses and artisans, she offers a variety of events and programs to showcase their work and bring their unique creations to an appreciative audience.

“We’re better together,” Ms. Halperin said. “The people that come here are not customers, they are our neighbors and they are our treasured friends.”

To kick off the holiday season, Robyn’s Nest introduced Seven Weeks of Christmas to highlight local artists in the seven weeks prior to the Christmas holiday. Upcoming vendors and events include an olive oil taste testing and Katie Cakes Paintable Christmas Cookies, which includes in-store cookie decorating.

Robyn’s Nest is located at 24650 N. Lake Pleasant Parkway, #103. For additional information about upcoming events and showcased holiday vendors, visit or call 623-572-0740.
