Nantucket, affectionately known as the Grey Lady, will be opening its shores to boatloads of visitors this weekend as the famed Figawi sailing race takes place. But let's not forget that while this leisurely island has a reputation for basking in the sun—whether on its pristine beaches or the patio at Cisco Brewers—Nantucket has also built an established retail community known far beyond the Atlantic. Given the occasion, we've expanded our shopping guide accordingly.
