A bright idea for a foggy little island...

Nantucket Candle Company proves that history really does repeat itself. As a whaling capital and hub for business in the 19th century, one of Nantucket’s commodities were candles made from whale and local beeswax—considered akin to fine china of the day serving Paris and London as clients.
