Nobby Clothes Shop
Family owned and operated since 1930, the Nobby Clothes shop at 17 Main Street has been providing islanders and visitors with high quality, name-brand men’s sportswear at a reasonable price. They carry their own Nobby Clothes Shop private label sportswear and their popular line of Breton Reds sail pants, shorts, long-sleeve shirts and caps.
Head on over to Johnstons Cashmere at 4 Federal Street for this season’s softest knits! They carry cashmere wraps and ponchos that make great transition pieces for the changing season.
Murray’s Toggery Shop
Murray’s Toggery Shop at 62 Main Street has a way of keeping the classic looks they are known for while evolving with the times and constantly changing trends of the fashion world. Just recently they launched a new brand called the M Crest Collection, fine apparel for men and handbags for ladies, all made in the USA.
Sweet Liddle at 40 Centre Street offers a wide variety of fun and eclectic products to browse through, from clothing to home goods to natural soaps and toiletries. The handmade leather bags from Maine really caught my eye, and are one of their best sellers.
Peter England is celebrating its 40th year on Nantucket, providing their clientele with quality products made in the USA. Their luxuriously cozy knits for both men and women are all hand loomed using fine yarns, Irish linen, and organic cotton. They are located at #3 and #11 Old South Wharf.
Now that the craziness of summer is over, it’s time to settle into a season of cozy get-togethers and dinners with friends.

Island Cashmere, located at 32 Centre Street, is the only purveyor on the island of the well known French Sole ballet flats and they have a floor to ceiling wall dedicated to them. These comfortable and stylish shoes are perfect for fall and come in many different styles and colors, so you’ll be sure to find a pair that works for you.
Get ready for the holidays at Cold Noses, the pet boutique located in the Courtyard at Straight Wharf. They have a great selection of Nantucket ornaments that are hand painted and available in a variety of breeds, perfect for the dog lover in your life.
