Is there some principle of nature which states that we never know the quality of
what we have until it is gone?
Nantucket is a place that has special meaning to almost everyone who sets foot on its shores. To some, it is a summer-time escape from the hustle & bustle of their regular life. To others, it is a real sanctuary space that helps support such important virtues as health & happiness.
For Wopatula founder, Allyson Mitchell, the island is home and it has always been. She landed on the island in 1984 when she could barely walk, and spent her childhood living in its quiet and leisurely glory. Her best memories consist of scouring the south shore dunes with little friends, while the adults fished from the backs of their trucks and the sun set. Beach days started after breakfast and ended when the moon came up.
This brand was created to celebrate the simple, fun loving Nantucket life we used to lead when news only came from a newspaper and land lines were king.
About the Gear...
Our gear is essentially printed on demand...we use a great website, www.bonfire.com, to do this so that we can offer a variety of designs & colors without having to store a large inventory ourselves...that being said, it takes about two weeks from time of order to get your gear, so be prepared to wait just a bit.
We do have a small inventory of our apparel on Nantucket, so if you're lucky and we've got it on hand already, we'll send it right away! You'll be informed as soon as you place your order though as to what shipping times look like!
