Take one step into Robin's Nest in the Pass to feel the ambiance of something fresh and exciting. This gallery gift shop is not your average coastal boutique. Owner, Dorothy Roberts takes her shop to another level by combining her admiration of home town pride with her talent of making unique jewelry, and her love of family and art into one business.

With the original building once being the first post office in Pass Christian and the simple fact that Dorothy is one of four siblings who stayed in her home town, Dorothy feels like she never "left the nest" so to speak. With this and the passion of sharing her mother and father's love for Pass Christian, it is the perfect location for her business. Locals are happy to call it "The Nest" for short.

Dorothy has been creating custom one-of-a-kind handcrafted jewelry since 2004. The popular D. Roberts Collection offers original pieces with natural stones, crystals and sterling silver along with 14K GF and can be seen adorning her sisters, Sally-Ann Roberts of WWL-TV Channel 4 in New Orleans and Robin Roberts with ABC Good Morning America.

The Nest is proud to support 35 consigned artists within the shop. Ninety-five percent of the consigned art is by local artists stretching primarily from Slidell, Louisiana to Ocean Springs, Mississippi with a small percentage of the art being international pieces from as far away as Kenya, Italy, Cambodia and Spain. Each individual piece of merchandise in the shop is interesting and distinctive. The sales of International pieces help the international fair trade and in turn helps to support working women in Cambodia and Kenya earn a living.

2017 marks a smart new business adventure with Robin's Nest in the Pass partnering with Pass Soap Co. to create a bath and body essential line of bubble baths, body washes, body cre`mes, wood wick candles, and bath bombs named in honor of Dorothy's mother, Lucimarian Roberts to create the Lucimarian Collection.
