Our Story


The Robins Nest was created in 2015 by owners Samantha Lake, Ryan Lewis, and Tammy Beasley. It started out as an outlet and love of creativity and repurposing items. The mother and daughter trio attended markets selling their items. In 2018 the focus shifted to jewelry making for creators Samantha Lake and Ryan Lewis. They began making clay jewelry, which you will see is their passion. Their mother, Tammy Beasley, has always had a passion for sewing and continues to hand-make many beautiful items!

In 2021 The Robin’s Nest partnered with a local artisan shop, Martin Mercantile, and opened their first storefront. At this time The Robin’s Nest expanded their inventory to include other small business or handmade items! Martin Mercantile specializes in local artisan gifts and is a one of a kind unique gift shop that The Robin’s Nest is proud to be a part of!

Robin Franks 

The man behind our name. Robin became our bonus dad in 2000. He was a dad that every girl would be lucky to gain. Robin was the life of the party and a true family man. Robin served in the United States Army for 20 years and then later served as a contractor in Saudi Arabia. On October 14, 2014 Robin was tragically taken from us by a Saudi Arabian terrorist. Our family suffered an irreplaceable hole in our hearts. However, through the strength of our God we have been able to push forward. In 2015 we decided to act on our ambitions of owning our own business and started making steps towards that goal. We knew the perfect name, The Robin’s Nest.
