So what does Jewel of the Isle have going for it besides having a terrible pun for a name? Well, size, for starters. This establishment offers more room to move than many of the other island jewelry stores. The staff is very friendly and very helpful.

Their Nantucket collection also has a rich selection of books on whaling, boating and marine history.
As you browse through this store, you may linger over the home garden accessories (perfect for small flower gardens).

And yet, none of this will answer your question-why is this place called Weeds anyway? Just ask. The staff will gladly tell you that it's named after the owner's horse.
Forage means to search for or hunt. The people at Forager House have certainly done that, hunting down and bringing together an impressive collection of Americana.
