When Century House Innkeepers learned a few weeks ago that one of their guests was a great admirer of Nantucketer, Manny Dias and his unique Lightship Baskets, we urged them to invite Manny to the inn’s “Gerry Berry Buffet Breakfast”. The guests were vacationing on Island with the intention of selecting another of his baskets to add to their extensive collection of his work. Little did they know what fans Century House Innkeepers are of Manny and his humanitarian goodness to so many on the Island… including Century House. In the early days of Gerry & JeanE’s innkeeping, Manny- whose artistic creativity extends beyond basket weaving which started as a hobby in the 1970′s – did all the brick laying of the inn’s patios and let the inn pay off the debt “on the installment plan” over several months/years!! We never missed a payment, and he never charged us interest!! At 89 years of age, he remains a dear friend for the last 30 years. His favorite item on the buffet, the scones!!
