Ready for Summer

We are open and ready to serve you with in-store shopping and online sales with “contactless” curbside pickup. See you soon!

Your east Nantucket source for wine, beer, liquor, and spirits—plus gifts and clothing.

At the heart of the village of Sconset, you’ll find the unlikeliest of shops.  It’s the Sconset Bookstore where conversation flourishes—and there’s not a book to be found.

So why “Bookstore?” Once a soda fountain, it was the hub of village activity where folks gathered to read the paper and swap stories. Occasionally a story would be embellished with a sip of something a little stronger than coffee. Soon much more “reading” took place.

Today the Bookstore has evolved into the village liquor, gift, and clothing shop.  Place your online order for your day at the beach, or for relaxing in the Sconset sunset. Summer memories begin here.

Wines & Spirits

We think about beverages. Rose all day? A craft cocktail before dinner? Perhaps a Cisco brew or Vermentino for the beach? Our shop is small, but amongst our thoughtfully selected gathering of bottles, you’ll discover wines and spirits perfect for your needs.

Gifts & Decor

You deserve a beautiful, restful home. So we select home goods to fit your feeling of summer.

With a salad bowl for the table, a lantern for the deck, or a candle for the bedroom, your special summer space will come to life.

Clothing

Tunics, tops, cashmere, and shawls… we’ve got you covered. Our clothes are for lazy days at the beach and cool summer evenings, featuring inspired coastal summer wear from gifted artisans. Peek inside the Bookstore; you’ll be surprised what you will find.

What’s New This Season

It’s an everchanging selection, so stop by often.

We’ve traveled to High Point, North Carolina, Atlanta, and San Diego to curate livable luxury for the beach cottage and celebratory summer sips. Discover an everchanging blend of coastal accessories for lifestyle and home. This season, like every other, you’ll never know what discoveries will surprise and delight.

Sconset: A Summer Family Tradition

Some say you step back in time here on the east end of the island. We say take time to step back and enjoy family, friends, and the sense of ease that is Sconset.

From its history as a fishing village and artist colony to the summer family memories of today, Sconset means so much to so many. A sense of place realized for generations. Sconset is in of all our hearts and minds.
