About the Owners

The Flamingo’s Nest is the “Sister Store” to the very popular Pelican Cottage consignment furniture store in Osprey, FL. Owner’s Darrell and Nicki Hoke opened The Flamingo’s Nest in March of 2013 just an eight of a mile south of Pelican Cottage. In July of 2016, they moved the store to 758 S. Tamiami Trail which is right next to Pelican Cottage. While the two stores have the same Key West inspired theme and the same creative and fun display styles, the furniture and accessories are unique to each store. Darrell and Nicki wanted to be sure not to duplicate items so that a visit to both stores would be a unique experience. While Pelican Cottage carries predominately used and consignment furniture with a sprinkling of new furniture mixed in, The Flamingo’s Nest carries predominately new Coastal style furniture and accessories. Darrell and Nicki wanted to be sure that the selection in their two stores were different while maintaining the wonderful attributes that have made them such a success. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, fun and casual environment, great selection and great prices!

Formerly custom home builders in North Carolina, their talents in home design, decorating and display are tastefully showcased in both of their stores. Darrell and Nicki invite all of their loyal Pelican Cottage customers to visit The Flamingo’s Nest and they especially welcome all of their new customers.
