The Nook is a non-profit retail store and gathering space in Ladue benefitting St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Volunteers sell clothing, unique gifts, and Missouri-made crafts. We offer classes and lectures provided by people in the community: sing-alongs, art projects and book readings for kids; crafting and learning for adults. The space is also available for gatherings: you can host a puzzle night or planning committee meeting here. We welcome people to help us create community! Come in for a cup of coffee, connect face-to-face with others in our community, let your kids see our fun space, work on a puzzle, pick up a hostess gift - all in one spot. Come check out The Nook!


Our in-person store is open on Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10-4. All classes are currently suspended due to COVID-19. Anyone can shop from the comfort of their home and choose:

  • curbside pickup;
  • free local delivery; or
  • shipping via USPS.
