Nantucket Salt - Nantucket artist and photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh
Nice to meet you.
We’re Nantucket Salt, a marketplace that sells handcrafted goods fashioned here on Nantucket using sustainable materials often originally deemed as trash. But we’re more than that – we’re a full gamut of nautical inspiration – see so for yourself on our blog where we post our adventures, our photos and our passions.
Stay a while, and feel free to drop us a line.
The legend of Nantucket and its natives taught us the way of repurposing, repairing or re-visioning discarded things. Our own process echoes the spirit of Nantucket in that we comb the island’s beaches for driftwood, bottles, and anything else that might stir our mojo. We use those driftwood pieces to showcase artwork, but are simply just delighted to showcase the found item itself to someone who might have originally not given it a second glance.
Each piece we find and create is original in its glory and tells a story. And we’re here to share it.
