Our Story

In a nutshell, we are a duo of fifty-somethings who decided to go for it and take on a new challenge in the fall of 2011; creating an e-com store specializing in outdoor living products.

After spending the past 20 plus years raising our children and running our families, we decided it was time for us. Each of us has things we’re passionate about, so we decided to put our interests to work. We've created an e-marketplace that offers products from top brands that are unique, special, of great quality and priced right.

We are dedicated to creating a community of loyal customers who can trust in our ability to seek out products that are unique, sometimes a bit hard to find, but always the absolute best value. Whether it’s a product from a well-known company or one produced by a small, home-town entrepreneur who crafts products in low volume with great care, our job is to find it and bring it to you at a fair price.

Customer service is the backbone of everything we do - we are here to help! Conducting research, creating a safe and secure shopping experience, hassle-free returns and exchanges or helping find a product, whatever it is that you need, our job is to make it simple and to help you on your journey. We genuinely appreciate your consideration of Nutshell Stores as a trusted e-retailer and we hope you decide to join our community.

A full year into the business, as we added more products to our line-up, we realized that certain product lines deserved a site of their own. We decided to branch out and began to develop sister sites of Nutshell Stores. In August 2013 we launched our first niche site, Rain Chains in a Nutshell, www.rainchainsinanutshell.com featuring the most beautiful & decorative copper rain chains and accessories. Soon after, we launched Outdoor Curtains in a Nutshell, www.outdoorcurtainsinanutshell.com featuring top quality Sunbrella, WeatherSmart and Polyester curtains designed for outdoors. As we continued to improve the first two sites, we launched two more sister sites in 2013, Rustic Furniture in a Nutshell, www.rusticfurnitureinanutshell.com and Poly Furniture in a Nutshell, www.polyfurnitureinanutshell.com. As we continue to grow, we keep excellent customer service, value and adding quality products to our line-up at the forefront of everything we do. Shop with confidence on all Nutshell sites!
