Meet The Team: Eliza von Zerneck
My name is Eliza von Zerneck, and I'm the operations and inventory intern here at The Nest. I've been committed to secondhand fashion for the past year and a half while I've been running my own sustainable accessories brand called Picnic Palace, where I make handcrafted crowns, purses, and other strange wares out of salvaged and repurposed materials. I also have a degree in illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design, and I've done several commissioned murals for my hometown of Peoria, Illinois, where I lived for 3 years after graduating. I moved back to Providence in October of 2021, and I've been working at The Nest ever since! I'm thrilled to have found a group of like-minded creatives who are as dedicated to sustainability and community as I am.
