Jill Biden was out on Saturday shopping in Nantucket with a motorcade of five cars and grandkids.

First lady stopped by Main Street shops to browse in Pageo Jewelers, Nalu Of Nantucket and then picked up some Polo Ralph Lauren items.

At various stops, Naomi, Hunter Jr. and Maisy, her grandkids, were seen with her. The pair spent some time at Clorinda Antinori, an Italian luxury shoe shop, trying out different options.

The spectacle was witnessed by many people, who waved and took pictures using their smartphones. 

Biden was easy to see, considering the many Secret Service agents that were surrounding her, as well the motorcade which moved alongside her on the street while she walked along the sidewalks.

Wearing a long black coat and a purple scarf, Biden wished people a ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ and posed for selfies between stops.

The Biden clan stopped for a late lunch at Slip 14, on the town’s Old Wharf, for a food break. They serve local cod and seafood like calamari.

Then, it was back at them.

After her long wait at the restaurant, the first lady walked to Faherty Clothing and stopped by Faherty’s to browse more. It sells sustainable clothes. Biden visited a nearby flower shop.

She didn’t respond to a question from DailyMail.com on whether Americans can have a safe holiday season given the new Omicron variant of COVID, which the World Health Organization called highly transmissible and a ‘variant of concern.’

Small Business Saturday is a White House initiative that encourages shoppers to support small businesses rather than large ones.

For the first lady it was the second day in a row shopping. President Joe Biden joined her and her grandkids on Friday for post-Thanksgiving dinner. Then, a stop at the local bookshop.

President Joe Biden, like many Americans, got some of his Christmas shopping out of the way on Friday, picking up Pokemon cards for the grandkids and some kids’ books for baby Beau.

Biden spent over an hour walking along the cobblestone streets of downtown Nantucket. He stopped at shops and spoke with locals.

He was so nice. One of Craftmasters’ staff said that they had a good conversation. Biden purchased a leather passport holder for Christmas. They sell leather products. 

Staff member: “He’s very nice gentleman,” he added.

Biden paid $100 to get the $19.99 Pokemon card pack at Sunken Ship. Employees inside said that he did so with a $100 bill. 

Naomi, Finnegan,, and Maisy Biden’s grandchildren joined Natalie, Hunter Jr. and Beau Biden for Friday’s shopping. Some went with President Obama, while others visited separate shops along with Jill Biden.

Nantucket Bookworks has been a favorite place for the Biden family for 35+ years. In fact, they were the ones who purchased hardcover books for their baby Beau. Hunter Biden is the name of Beau. Baby Beau is now almost two years of age. 

Jill Biden also bought several Christmas ornaments, which was a first-time tradition. 

‘Dr. Biden likes ornaments,’ a bookstore employee said to DailyMail.com.

There are many ornament choices in this store, including minature shops and different colored globes. Also, there is a selection of Christmas-themed ornaments such as Santas or reindeers. There is also a large area for children that contains books and toys.  

Prof. Dr. Biden of a local college also purchased several books.  

Biden’s stops were made ahead of Small Business Saturday when people are encouraged to shop in smaller stores.

‘Small businesses are the backbone of communities across the country — and it’s crucial we support them during the holiday season and all year round. On Twitter, the president wrote “Shop small” and shared photos from his shopping spree.

Biden spent over an hour walking the streets of Nantucket on Friday, where he shopped and stopped to chat with locals

Biden spent more than an hour strolling the streets of Nantucket Friday. He stopped for a chat and bought groceries.

The president, who has been coming to Nantucket for Thanksgiving most years since the mid-1970s, indugled in one of his long standing traditions – walking around stores, chatting with people and watching the town Christmas Tree lighting ceremony.

For that brief period of time on Friday he was plain ‘Joe’ again – except he was surrounded by Secret Service, White House staff, and members of the press. As he was walking, agents cleared his path and The Beast followed him down the street.  

Biden’s ability to move outside for so long is unusual for any president.  

It was difficult to miss him – there were a lot of cars and people around him, as he walked.  Biden’s path was chaotic and people raced to keep up, as everyone tried to get ahead of him. It was push, shovel and holiday cheer. 

The townspeople were elated to see the president, despite the chaos. 

Biden was just as joyful to be outside, stopping by to speak to people even when a yellow police line separated him and a row of Secret Service agents.  

He was told by a man that he looked younger in real-life.

The president was greeted by a little girl dressed in pink, who sat down on his shoulders.

Other people shouted out, “We love Joe,” and “Hey, President” as well as, “Happy Thanksgiving.”  Nearly everybody had their phones out and took photos of the moment to preserve them for posterity. 

Biden, who is proud of his Scranton roots was in the area and stayed at the home of billionaire David Rubenstein (13,000 feet), located within the inner harbor. The local road was closed by the state police and Coast Guard vessels patrolled its vicinity.

For his shopping spree, the president broke free from the bubble of the presidential motorcade after a post-Thanksgiving lunch with his family. 

Biden ran to some shops as agents guided him towards the presidential limousine known as The Beast. While staff and media raced for catch-up, the agents quickly moved to remove the large crowd of people who had gathered to watch the motorcade go. 

The rains that came and went didn’t stop the president. He walked on cobblestone pavements with an umbrella, his grandchildren beside him, his baseball cap on, his mask on. Maisy Biden would sometimes hold onto the president’s arm while they walked. 

Shopkeepers came knocking at their doors with cell phones in hand to hear what he was talking about. He visited an array of stores – Sunken Ship, Island Cashmere, Centre Point and Freedman’s of Nantucket.

The route he took was circular around downtown, stopping at the spot where the Christmas Tree was still dark and waiting for light to come on. 

For the tree lighting, the Biden family gathered together in mass: Beau the baby was handed around by family members: Maisy took Beau closer to the tree to view it after it had been lit. Dad Hunter held Beau on his shoulders while mom Melissa held him.

Biden was not present to light the tree. He stood by Jill, his wife and all of their families to observe the proceedings. 

Biden’s grandkids were able to take selfies while they danced and sang along with local high school students singing Christmas carols.

The president was seen taking photos with customers and shaking hands while inside. Local reporters noted that he was eating a hamburger.

After the Bidens left Nantucket Bookworks where employees claimed the family was shopping there for 35+ years, they stopped.  

Jill Biden was there, as was Hunter, Melissa, Ashley, Naomi, Finnegan, Maisy, Natalie, Hunter, and baby Beau Biden; and, Peter Neal, Naomi’s fiancé. 

Biden families have a tradition of eating out every Friday following Thanksgiving.
