Cute local shop
Feb 2021 • Family
I’ve been back to The Nest Egg a few times, mostly for their fudge. It’s so good! In addition to the fudge, candy and chocolate; they also have a selection of toys, outdoor equipment like seeping bags and cooking tools, jams, and clothes. It’s a bit pricey; but always good to support local businesses.

Found a thimble!
Sep 2019
My mother still collects thimbles and they are becoming hard to find, the nest egg had them! After stopping in all of the other stores and getting turned down, our search paid off. They have a little bit of everything including fresh fudge. Stop in, you’ll never know what you will find.

Cute, but sorry to say, entirely skippable
Dec 2017 • Couples
This is a cute little tchotchke store where you can pick up souvenirs and gifts. It had this overall feel as if no one had been in there to shop for a while. Items are crammed into every nook and cranny of the narrow aisles - from t-shirts, novelties, fudge, mood rings, buttons, stones, arts and crafts for the kids, jewelry, camping gear, used DVDs, and a giant used book section on the second floor. We bought a peppermint patty made in house and it tasted overwhelmingly of peppermint oil instead of being sweet. The saleswoman was very nice, but this place had obviously seen better days. I safely feel you can skip this place.

A True Country Store
Dec 2017 • Couples
They town of Phoenicia is a hidden gem in the Catskills and this store is the quintessential country store. They have fun and practical things and the staff are friendly and helpful when you want them to be, and let you browse uninterrupted if that's what you're in the mood to do. And the fudge is strategically placed at the checkout area so you won't miss the variety ... and don't.

A good old fashion country store
Jul 2017 • Family
We have been visiting the nest egg since the 1970s. Of course it was not called the nest egg then but they manage to keep that vintage Catskill feeling. Always a great place to find that perfect gift that screams Phoenicia. Sweatshirt, hat, toys for the kids, videos, sweetshop treats but don't leave without some of their fudge. Simply delicious!
