Nantucket Shopping 2013 Part 1

So shopping on Nantucket is outrageous..there are so many amazing stores packed in a few blocks of each other.  I am always wishing Miami had just two of them.  Since most of these shops were literally a block from where I was staying, it ended up being what I did most of the time I was there.  Here are some of my favorites...
=========================================

Store No. 2
This tiny little store right at the end of Center Street is adorable.  Lots of Jonathan Adler, blue and white chinoiserie mixed with tons of beautiful home accessories.  I fell in love with the platter below and it haunted me all weekend until I bought it on Monday right before we left.  This adorable store is the creation of designer Elizabeth Bauer and her lovely Mom, who was there when I was shopping.   Loved this one....

Isabel Harvey

I wondered into this beautiful store next and couldn't stop looking around at every corner.  There were so many cool things to see...lots of jewelry, tote bags, scarves and much more.  I chatted with the owner and left Nantucket with a very nice crystal bracelet order.  So, Kristin Pearce Designs will finally be sold on Nantucket!  If I opened a store, I would want it to look just like this.  I seriously felt right at home there.

The Lion's Paw

Perched right on Main Street, the Lion's Paw has always been a go-to when shopping on Nantucket.  It is a large store filled with beds made with sumptuous linens, beautiful pieces of furniture, picture frames, rugs, china, crystal and everything you would need to entertain at home.  Tucked in surprise places are some very pretty framed prints and literally something for every room in your house.  Perfect place for a quick hostess gift as well.

Petticoat Row Bakery

Located just a little too close to where I was staying, is the most beautiful bakery.  Chock full of the prettiest pastries, muffins, macarons and much more, this place is dangerous.  The line in the morning is long, everyone dying for their coffee and sweets.   Definitely worth checking out...

Nantucket Country Antiques

Right down from Store No. 2, there is this antique store that is filled with beautiful nautical-inspired antiques, maps, books, framed prints and so much more.  There were serious antiques for anyone interested in anything related to the Northeast, whaling, the sea, etc.  It was so much fun to walk around there and see all the interesting things they have collected here.  A must see for any antique buff.,,,

NRO

So surprised to stumble upon a Nantucket outpost of North River Outfitter (NRO) on Main Street!  I originally checked this store out on Charles Street in Boston.  It always has a cute assortment of clothing and accessories for both men and women.  When we walked inside we were so surprised to hear the cute girls say they opened the store the day before!  It was so well stocked with cool things.  I got a linen tote with sparkly straps that is so cute for the summer.  Definitely check this store out if you have not already!
