{A Summer Place}

Nantucket Travel Information | Nantucket Lighthouse

If I say you the word "Nantucket" (yes, that beutiful losed island in Massachusset) what comes to your mind? Yes, the "Nantucket´s reds" and the preppy style, for sure.

               The Hamptons, in Long Island, is a nice summer place, but for new rich as people say. Nantucket is oldest and not for everyone. Have you got the look? I mean reds trousers, bycicle with a little basket, nautic shoes...

                 Nantucket is a small island located about 30 miles off the coast of Cape Cod in MA that has a long seafaring history and is in its entirety a National Historic Landmark.

*Where to Find the Clothing there?

                 Murray's Toggery has been both a Main Street fixture and a Nantucket institution for over half a century. And it's been family-run almost from the beginning. Philip Murray purchased The Toggery Shop, a men's clothing business, in 1945, and by the early 50s his son, Philip C. Murray, had returned to the island and joined the firm. The store has continued to grow both in size and service; today it carries men's, women's, and children’s clothing, including an exclusive line of traditional sportswear featuring the Murray's Toggery label.

{Pendants for Remember Something}

I have always felt worship by little pendants, especially if there is something written or drawn on them. Although it is a word that means a lot to you, such as "love" or "truth", or something which always remember who you are.

 My favorite clothing brand, "Emerson Made", gold pendant has a precious, if you can, I recommend you take a look. You can choose the design you want: lion, dragonfly, butterfly ...

Always with you.
