Meet Michelle, The Nantucket Collection Owner 

The Nantucket Collection was created in 2018 as a destination for classic and preppy gifts for her, him and the home. Nantucket was the perfect inspiration for the shop since it epitomizes all these things.  When shopping for products for The Nantucket Collection, I take a page from Marie Kondo's famous line: 'everything must spark joy'!  You will notice, I have a particular love of Nantucket, blue and white, stripes, seersucker, gingham, ginger jars and chinoiserie!   

Nantucket is a special place to our family. Located 30 miles off Cape Cod in the Atlanitc Ocean, Nantucket is a small island with beautiful beaches, historic charm, hydrangeas, picket fences and cobblestone streets. The town’s history dates back to when it was settled in 1659 and become known for it's whaling history. 

We fell in love with Nantucket's beauty and historic charm and as a result decided to become Nantucket homeowners.  We live primarily in New Jersey but try to get up to Nantucket as much as possible. My dream is someday to open a shop on Nantucket, when life settles down and I'm not driving my kids all around town! For now please enjoy shopping my online shop. It's also a great opportunity if you're off island and would like to purchase special Nantucket gifts. 

Previous to founding The Nantucket Collection, I had a career in marketing and public relations and worked in corporate store operations opening stores for a major retail chain. Having an entrepreneur spirit I have always had small businesses over the years most similar to the TNC was the online paper & gift shop I had for eight years. I learned many best practices and insights to the online world.  I have always loved looking for the cutest things on the market and hope you enjoy my selections. If you have any questions or special requests, please email me and I'm happy to help with whatever you need.  Also If you have a product or line you think I should check out-would love to hear from you! Email me at nantucketcollection@gmail.com.
