This odd little store has been here for many years. There are many different types of shells inside, and they are clearly labeled as to type. It's pretty educational. Very few of the shells are local, though. The rest come from all over the world....More

If you can catch this place open, it houses a plethora of seashells. The owner is a Vietnam vet with conspiracy theories but he's an awesome dude and knows all about shells. Something for every budget.

This is one of my favorite places to go in PCB. I always find something interesting I want to take home. Nothing commercial about this place. Mom and Pop shop all the way.

Pretty sure Daniel is behind in technology! I suggest you call him....I am assuming he has a phone!? I do not remember seeing any natural sponges in his shop.
