Shopper’s Diary: Atlantic on Nantucket

August 25, 2010 8:30 PM

On a quick trip to Nantucket earlier this summer, Francesca and I discovered Atlantic, an antiques and vintage shop owned by longtime summer resident Colleen Darby Wurts. Over the winter, Wurts visits estate sales, auctions, and antiques fairs, amassing a collection of furniture, lighting, and accessories suitable for the summer home. We especially like her vintage chairs upholstered in fabrics from French designer Dominique Picquier. Atlantic is located at 10 Straight Wharf; 508-228-7776.
