Respoke Nantucket – A Different Tack for 2020

Dear Friends & Fans,

We hope you're well and enjoying the summer sunshine. We've all had to get creative these past few months, whether with online learning, cooking, or making business decisions. As many of you know, we had planned to open a shop on Nantucket this summer, at 41 Straight Wharf. Sadly, travel restrictions and social distancing protocols have prevented us from doing so.

Instead of selling espadrilles at our location, we've made the space available to the Artists Association of Nantucket, for use as an exhibition space. This amazing group represents numerous local artists and is celebrating their 75th anniversary this year.  If you are on island, please stop in and view some of their work.

We are also committed to supporting charities that benefit the people of Nantucket. We’ve partnered with Nantucket Community Sailing and Fairwinds— Nantucket’s Counseling Center, and will donate 25% of every sale to these organizations. Find out more about their specific missions and help them help others while shopping for unique footwear, face masks, and cashmere sweaters. See below for CODE to generate a specific donation.
