The 79th Annual Sanibel Shell Show was held March 3, 4 and 5, 2016. This incredible show is put on by the Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club. I have attended this event many times over the years and it always leave me in awe.
There are scientific and artistic divisions that shellers can compete in, and there is also an area for purchasing goods, like books, jewelry, and more.
The shells you will see at this show are incredible! If you have never been, you should really try to attend next year.
Plus, in the parking lot, there are vendors selling seashells, food, clothing, gifts and crafts.
Check out these true tulip egg casings, did you know what they looked like? I know lightning whelk casings, so this was cool to see.
Aren’t these specimens incredible? I went crazy looking at the displays, I’m sure you will, too! Hope to see you there next year.
