Three businesses to open: Red Nest Interiors, Three Pea: Organize, Stage, Design and Pea Pod Consignment Gallery

WICHITA — The end of Three Pea Interiors means the beginning of a couple of new businesses and the expansion of a third.

Jolene Holdaway closed her Three Pea shop late last year and is preparing to open Red Nest Interiors in the former Esprit de Fleur space at 2907 E. Douglas early next month.

"I absolutely had to have more room," Holdaway says of showroom and storage space.

She had been sharing space with Three Pea Staging and Design in the former Crandall’s Interiors furniture space on East Second Street.

Owners Gary Streepy and Kirsten Awe were wanting to expand their business as well.

Monty Stuber, whose Montage salon also is in the Esprit building, offered Holdaway some storage space that eventually turned into a lease agreement.

Holdaway thought making a complete split from the Three Pea name would be less confusing for customers.

Also, she's changing her business slightly by incorporating some older pieces into her showroom.
