This is a typical tourist attraction offering sea shells, of course, and tons of souvenir trinkets. It's fun with the kids looking around, however, there is very little of interest to purchase. The shop offers home made fudge at $13.00 a pound and we bought some. It was quite good. Also, there is an ice cream concession next to the... More

HI Bob Thank you for saying you enjoyed or fudge. We make it every day. I understand we are just a big shop full of things to buy with shells tucked away in all the corners. People wanted many items besides just shells but all related. SO We carry everything that has a shell on it from plaques to lamps... More

Large store with a wide selection of your normal beach trinket but also a fair priced location and great staff. The fudge which they do not make in shop but do have made locally is great!

This is the best "shell shop" in Rehoboth or OC. It's not a must do for me, but if I had kids screaming to go in every shell shop/Tshirt shop they saw, I'd make THIS place the one I'd go in. They have a lot of nice home decor items here that will make that yucky little hermit crab who... More
