Lovely stuff

Lots of unique, different items and friendly staff. I got several Christmas ornaments made of various shells that are just beautiful. Not your average tourist junk.

Great Place to Visit
Jun 2019
If you're at Mallory Square don't miss this store. They have a nice selection of shells and coral as well as assorted souvenirs. The staff is helpful without being pushy. I collect shells. I bought a 13" Melo umbilicatus for $26.00 using a coupon, with a trimmed lip, but otherwise excellent. Try that on eBay! They have mostly common shels, not specimen grade, but great souviners at reasonable prices. There are a few bargains such as the one above. They also have beautiful coral at good prices. What would you rather say, "I bought this on Mallory Square" or "I bought this on eBay"?

Typical tourist shop
May 2019 • Friends
This shell store is typical of what you might see in and shore resort community in Florida. It is huge, the help was friendly and the prices were typical tourist prices meaning they had done cheap junk and anything of quality is over priced. Not a must see.

We stopped here as my daughter loves to look at all the shells whenever she can. Good selection of shells and other beach decorations.

Love this store,
Jan 2019 • Family
This store has just about anything shell related from shell jewelry, to loose shells where you can pick your own. Almost as fun as finding seashells at the beach and you don’t end up with sand where sand shouldn’t be! tThe prices were reasonable, I could have spent all day in here, I’ll be back.

Cool shells and coral
Jul 2018 • Couples
The Key West Shell Warehouse, located near historic Building No. 1 at the port, offers a huge selection of, well, shells, coral, different types of sponges, and other marine souvenirs. It's a cut above the rest of the tourist kitsch in the area. Definitely worth a stop.

Pleasant surprise
Jan 2019 • Couples
I really enjoyed this shop. I was surprised when I entered, there were some quality gits and a lot of jewelry. I found it to be very reasonably price and many unique pieces. They had both fine and costume jewelry.

Happy Shopping
Oct 2018 • Couples
We stumbled across this store while out hunting for souvenirs for family and friends. I ended up buying a few things for them and myself too. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had a variety of things beyond the standard fare that every other gift shop had. I was especially excited that they carry Mud Pie brand items- and they were very reasonably priced. I would recommend this store most highly.

Shells Galore
Nov 2017
While in port we stopped by the warehouse to pickup a few souvenirs for the home crew. Shells for kids and shark jaw for grandson. A large variety of shells is available so no reason to not find one or two to your liking.
