Robin Levin of Robin’s Nest in Hudson
Sometimes you need to venture slightly off Warren Street to see the latest in creative, original, and hand-made designs. Robin’s Nest at 25 North 5th Street, (5th Street and Columbia) is a must-see for vintage designer clothing, jewelry, and reimagined furniture.
Robin started visiting Hudson in 1997, and would shop in the Armory when it used to be an antique warehouse.
“I’ve always enjoyed Hudson. It’s so much fun and has a great vibe.” In the past year, Robin and her husband moved to Hudson and opened up shop.
Her shop includes vintage clothing, hats, jewelry, and some clothing that Robin restiches, to enhance its value.
Robin starts with a plain, simple piece of furniture, sometimes found on the curb, and gives it a new life.
