About Us





A little bit about us:


I started egg decorating in the late '60s (as in 19xx!) after attending a Garden Club lecture by Rosemary Disney.
She became my friend and mentor and helped me find the supplies to get started.

In the early '70s I was asked on short notice to teach egg decorating at a Kiwanis convention in Rochester NY. I hurriedly made
up some kits, and the classes were successful.

Those students started calling me for supplies, and this was the start of The Robbins' Nest.

I did my first egg show in Syracuse NY in 1973, followed by Phillipsburg NJ, and have been on the "egg show circuit" ever since.

I've taught at most shows and organized many of the Friday night "experts" programs.

In 2004 I was honored to receive the Kit Stansbury Award.

After having a shop in Palmyra NY for many years, we moved to AZ in 1997, and it is now our full time home.

Jim retired from his manufacturer's rep job in 1996 and has been helping me at home and at the shows since then.

We both enjoy meeting new friends and catching up with old friends at the shows.

Our website is a new venture to make our items accessible to our customers all year, 7 days a week, without having
to wait for a show.


Thanks to all our great customers who have helped us grow over the years. Please stop by and visit us in person at the shows.
