The Shell Shop

The Shell Shop in Morro Bay

Every little kid loves to collect shells. Over the years, it has become a hobby that children are no longer able to participate in at most local beaches. Instead of collection shells, my children have enjoyed collecting sea glass from our local beaches over the years. While we were visiting Morro Bay this summer, we stumbled upon The Shell Shop, and my children were in pure bliss.

The Shell Shop has been in business since 1955 and has the largest collection of shells on the central coast. Inside of the store was wall to wall shells, and every type of shell that an ocean lover could have desired. There were shell sculptures, jewelry cases adorned with shells, and decorative corals. There was something for everyone.

Children looking at shell collection

My children spent hours filling their small velvet bags with their favorite shells to cherish as a keepsake from our time spent in Morro Bay. They were also about to purchase postcards to send home to their grandparents, and my daughter purchased a beautiful 18k gold sand dollar charm.
