Coastal Vintage Home & Garden

Most Nantucket home stores—clean, uncluttered spaces, all—are indistinguishable. Only Coastal stands out. The vibe feels somehow contemporary, even though much of its dinnerware, glassware, vases, and candlesticks are unquestionably vintage. The shop also carries more of-the-moment wares such as subtly scented candles, pillows, and gourmet sea salts and ground pepper from famed Nantucket cookbook author Sarah Leah Chase.
