Full of interesting things - not just shells

Very fun place to go if you love sea shells and other things from the ocean. Besides shells there are great little souvenir items.

Walked by here the other day and was surprised to see that they added a window from the shop out onto the avenue. This area now contains their fudge. There was a young man at the window inviting everyone to come try a FREE sample. We did sample the cheesecake fudge and the cherry fudge. However, the samples were very... More

This shop has a lot of beach-related items. If it is related to a beach or seashell, they probably have it. They also advertise homemade fudge that seems to be popular although I did not purchase any of it.

My children love this shop! Its a child's paradise! I also like the fudge. It's not cheap and my fudge this year that I got was stale. That was a little disappointing however I would try it again next year!

I love shopping here because they have so many unique items!!! My ONLY complaint is, and it's with all shops that sell Hermit Crabs; ... We bought several hermit crabs, and spent extra on the cute little plastic "home", only to find out once we got home and after MUCH research, that they can't actually live in that container. They...

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

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
