It's All About the Box!

It is not challenging to realize what season it is here on Nantucket this December. With the NHA’s Festival of Trees, Main Street’s lineup of merchant decorated Christmas trees, and whaling captains’ houses and inns all decking their halls, there is no shortage of Christmas trees and holiday cheer.

Now that the rush of shoppers during Stroll is past, one can appreciate the myriad of festive decorations and shopping opportunities all to oneself. As you walk around town at a more leisurely pace, don’t miss the tiny tree-lined lane tucked away at 16.5 Federal Street. Lovely treelit evergreens dot the narrow walkway leading to Peter Beaton – where you will get a most personalized shopping experience.

What’s in store this winter at Peter Beaton is fur and philanthropic flair! Exactly you need - ‘tis the season for bundling up and for giving.

You may know Peter Beaton for its quintessential straw hats tied perfectly with a ribbon. This December Peter Beaton has launched a new beautiful collection of fur handbags, fur vests, fur ponchos, fur cuffs, and fur scarves that will have you outfitted in fury warmth “from Hat to Toe.” 

Peter Beaton has in stock an incredible variety of fur and faux-fur hats for men, women, and children. Ivory, chocolate brown, black, buff, and grey comprise the palette of colors to choose from, giving every complexion and outfit a perfect match. You can dress these fur pieces up or down, so their versatility and softness make them a win-win. 

Try this pillbox hat for a stunning look that will stop traffic. Another great look is this faux mink cossack hat, which provides a spectacular way to keep warm. The brim can be turned under to adjust the height of the crown. All hats come packaged in one of Peter Beaton's Signature Hatboxes.

Ponchos and vests so touchable you could feel like you are floating on clouds! Even your handbag can be luxurious with this faux mink tote, which is the perfect size for a weekend getaway. Use with a shoulder strap or with the two handles. It's practical, versatile, and fun!

These deliciously soft scarves will make your neck warm and your heart sing. Packaged in an adorable mini signature hatbox. These gorgeous real fox cuffs add the perfect combination of fun and glamour to any outfit.

Beyond hats, Peter Beaton offers a unique, important opportunity for you to shop where it counts. Hydrex Philanthropic is an initiative launched by Darcy Raymond Creech in 2010 with a goal to help ‘Make Contaminated Drinking Water History’, one village at a time. The lack of clean drinking water worldwide kills 5000 children/day and keeps 884 million others in the grip of despair. Solving the water crisis will cost $20 billion--which might sound like alot, but consider the fact that Americans spend approximately 40 billion dollars on Black Friday alone! 

Every change agent need a cool watch. Why? To spark conversation about the worlds water crisis and inspire others to be a part of the solution. Swiss Made Hydrex Philanthropic Watch with Sapphire Crystal and Signature Orange Nato Military Band.

This year, gift yourself, your family, friends, and loved ones a place in the hearts of those who need it most. Providing access to clean drinking water is a critical step in breaking the cycle of poverty, ending injustice, and preventing death.
