Retailer Spotlight: Milly & Grace

Emily Ott Hollister originally planned to spend one summer on Nantucket before moving to Boston to pursue a "real job".   Fast forward several years and Emily is now deeply rooted in the Nantucket lifestyle as owner of one of the island's hottest retail shops, Milly & Grace.  Named after her two grandmothers, Milly & Grace is a thriving family business.  Emily's mother assists with the buying, her sisters help on the sales floor and her best friends manage the store day-to-day.  The trio of sisters, Emily, Allison and Caroline, also run the popular lifestyle blog, The Milly and Grace Girls Blog, together. It looks like Emily ended up with the best kind of "real job" a girl could dream of!
