Step into Craftmasters to experience a time warp! You’ll find a treasure trove of handmade leather bags, belts, and glass animals. The rustic brick walls are adorned with wool caps and in the back, you’ll find tusks, scrimshaw knives, and letter openers. Ask the knowledgeable staff about the unique nature of each item!
The sign outside features a leather punch, instantly telling you the purpose of the store. As you enter, the rich, musky smell of cowhide greets you. Illuminated display cases showcase intricate nautical-themed items, belt buckles, cufflinks, and money clips. Leather items and tools are scattered around, and the people here are experts in leather craftsmanship.
Besides the leather goods, Craftmasters has a plethora of other fascinating pieces. Glass pieces, Xmas ornaments, lamps, clocks, timepieces, strange dolls, and scrimshaw fill the space. It’s an anachronistic shop that will excite all your senses and imagination.
Craftmasters is one of Nantucket’s oldest stores, owned and operated by David Masters. He also creates timeless pieces from Wooly Mammoth ivory and oil-based paints – perfect for collecting or gifting. Visit on a cold day to enjoy the warmth of the fire and the friendly, knowledgeable staff.
