    Shop our stores on Small Business Saturday on Nantucket

    Small Business Saturday has become a mainstay in the post-Thanksgiving shopping weekend. The day is focused on small, local stores , of which we have two. If you're around during Small Business Saturday on Nantucket, stop by Nantucket Brand Clothing or The Emporium of Nantucket.

    Small Business Saturday was started by American Express just three years ago. Although they have offered $25 credits in the past, this year American Express has reduced the statement credit to $10. We accept AmEx at both stores so if you've registered your card, you're eligible to receive a statement credit if you make a purchase of $10 or more at either (or both!) stores.

    There are many other stores participating in Small Business Saturday on Nantucket, and across the country. We may be biased, but we're always in favor of shopping at small businesses over big-box retailers. You'll typically find more unique items, get a personalized experience, and you'll more than likely be supporting more ethically responsible businesses.

    While Small Business Saturday focuses on shopping at retail stores, with the American Express statement credits only eligible on in-store purchases. If you're not on Nantucket, we encourage you to shop with us at NantucketBrand.com. We're currently offering up to 40% off - with a pledge of joining us in making this a season of giving. More details on the discounts and how you can join us can be seen on our Season of Giving post.

  • Thanksgiving on Nantucket

    "If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share."
    - W. Clement Stone

    Thanksgiving on Nantucket

    Thanksgiving is here once again! It’s that wonderful time when families come together, sharing warm moments around the dinner table and of course, reflecting on everything that they are grateful to have in their lives. It’s been another good year for us at Nantucket Brand and we are ever grateful to our loving friends and family, as well as to our many loyal customers. Having been inspired by the above quote from prominent American businessman, philanthropist and author W. Clement Stone, we felt it was our duty to share with you the many things that make Thanksgiving so wonderful here in Nantucket. We previously mentioned some of these in our post about Nantucket in November but wanted to give a few more details about what to expect this Thanksgiving on Nantucket.

    Vice President Biden on Nantucket

    Perhaps one of the most prominently featured traditions on Nantucket is the arrival of Joe Biden, current Vice President of the United States. For the past 36 years, no matter where his extensive political career may have taken him, Mr. Biden has returned to the island to celebrate the holiday with his family and give thanks. The Vice President’s arrival is well known to locals and he can be seen walking around the island with his family, usually wearing his trademark USS Delaware hat, chatting with the public, taking pictures, and generally displaying the down-to-earth charm that has made him so popular with voters.

    Turkey Plunge

    Another great tradition of Thanksgiving on Nantucket, and one that Vice President Biden regularly participates in, is the annual Cold Turkey Plunge. Every year, hundreds of participants and spectators gather to brave the frigid waters at Children’s Beach on Thanksgiving morning, taking pledges and raising money to support the Weezie Library for Children. The event certainly draws quite the crowd, and participants are encouraged to wear costumes, adding a bit of humor to the event. There are also various prizes participants can compete for, including Most Money Raised and Best Costumes.

    Christmas Tree Lighting

    Despite how beloved and fun these other traditions may be to lead us into Thanksgiving, the most cherished holiday tradition on the island comes the day after Thanksgiving, with the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Everyone gathers on Main Street to watch as over 100 Christmas trees are lit up simultaneously, filling the dark winter skies with light and color. This is followed by Nantucket High School’s Accidentals and Naturals leading the community in traditional Christmas carols. This year, spectators can follow along with the lyrics by downloading the Nantucket Arts mobile app, blending the best of modern life with the grand traditions of old.

    From all of here at Nantucket Brand, we hope your holiday is full or warmth, love and cheer. We also encourage you to join us in our effort to make this a Season of Giving by donating food, money, clothing, or time. Whether you're spending your Thanksgiving on Nantucket or elsewhere, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

  • All About Seersucker Clothing

    Striped Seersucker Dress - Women's Seersucker ClothingOur seersucker clothing styles are among our most popular items. Although many are familiar with this classic fabric, we want to tell a little more about the fabric, it's history and how we use it as part of our 'Get to Know Us' series. Similarly, we previously posted about another one of most popular fabric: All About Madras Clothing.

    Seersucker is a style of lightweight cotton fabric with a trademark 'puckered; texture. Much like our other popular fabric, Patchwork Madras, seersucker originally comes to us from India, where the fabric derived its name from the Hindi and Urdu words “kheer aur shakkar”, meaning “milk and sugar”. This is a reference to the way the fabric bunches up – the smooth and bumpy textures of the fabric are reminiscent of the texture of milk and sugar. Another similarity between seersucker and Madras fabric is that both fabrics originated in hot climates and were intended to be cool and lightweight. The trademark bunching of seersucker fabric causes it to allow more room for the skin to breath, which facilitates air circulation and the dissipation of heat.

    When the fabric was initially introduced in the United States, it was worn almost exclusively by the poor until preppy students in the 1920’s popularized it as a mode of 'reverse snobbery.' It was especially popular in the southern United States as suits made from the fabric were still breathable enough to wear in the hot and humid weather. Seersucker fabric was so popular in fact, that the US Senate used to have Seersucker Thursdays in June, where senators would arrive in traditionally Southern style seersucker suits. The tradition was unfortunately discontinued in 2012.

    Our Seersucker Clothing

    Men's Striped Seersucker Shorts & Seersucker Clothing

    At Nantucket Brand, we take great pride in offering you only the finest from around the world. We work with 100% cotton seersucker rather than a cotton/poly blend. While the classic blue and white striped fabric is still the most popular, we work to find other color and patterns that we think you'll love. Those include other striped color like green and pink, as well as multi-colored check patterns, and even gingham check patterns. After carefully choosing our colors, we make sure test the fabric by washing it multiple times to check the shrinkage and make sure it feels just as soft, or softer, than it did pre-wash. Once we're satisfied with the fabric, we send it straight to our factory, now located in the US, for production.

    Our authentic seersucker clothing is available in a variety of styles for men and women. We have several options of men's seersucker shirts, perfect for a casual get together or dressed up with a blazer for a more formal setting. We also offer seersucker shorts for men and women, the perfect way to ensure you never lose your cool in the hot months. Ladies should also browse our selection of seersucker dresses and seersucker pants and capris, offering a casual and understated style without sacrificing comfort. Many of our seersucker items are now made in the USA, including our men's striped and check seersucker shorts and women's striped and gingham seersucker skirts.

  • Christmas Stroll on Nantucket

    Christmas Stroll on Nantucket

    2013 Christmas Stroll on Nantucket

    The holiday season is upon us once again and here on Nantucket, a sure sign of Christmas is the annual Nantucket Christmas Stroll (2013: Dec. 6-8). Now in its 40th year, the Stroll was initially organized as an effort to keep locals from going off the island to get their holiday shopping done. What started as a three hour event with late closing times for local shops and businesses has since turned into a cherished holiday tradition encompassing the entire weekend.

    The holiday season starts off the weekend after Thanksgiving with the lighting of 100 Christmas trees all along Main Street, accompanied by local choirs and carolers singing traditional Christmas songs. The Christmas Stroll on Nantucket begins the following weekend, which is the first weekend of December. The annual event features a charming open air, European-style Advent market where Christmas truly comes alive as shoppers walk around taking in the sights, and perhaps being tempted by the smells of hot food and refreshments wafting through the cold, crisp air. Of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without Santa Claus, who arrives via a Coast Guard boat to kick off the festivities. His arrival is heralded by the Town Crier, and Santa sets up shop at the historic Jared Coffin House to visit with the children and receive their Christmas wishes. Naturally, it goes without saying that local businesses, shops, and restaurants all get in on the festivities, offering up various holiday specials.

    This year, the Stroll embraces a Victorian theme, including a Victorian Costume Contest held on Saturday, Dec. 7. All visitors are encouraged to participate and help bring that much more Dickensian flair to the season. To cap things off, there will be a community sing-along with Nantucket’s renowned Victorian Carolers.

    With such wonderful festivities all around us, we here at Nantucket Brand are proud to be part of the tradition in our own way, offering many special holiday products. Be sure stop by our downtown store at 10 Federal Street and see our latest clothing styles and find some holiday decor. Whether you want to add some flair around your tree with our needlepoint Christmas tree skirt, decorate with our pewter Christmas ornaments, or entertain guests in style with Christmas-themed placemats, we’ve got just the item for you! So if you’re in the area, we hope you’ll come visit us! From all of us here at Nantucket Brand, we hope your holidays are truly magical.
