The Marco Island Shell Club put on another successful show for shell artists, collectors and shell enthusiasts. The show featured literally MILLIONS and MILLIONS of shells.
The three-day show featured hundreds of exhibits: juried scientific exhibits, artistic exhibits, shells for sale, a live “specimen” tank, even a raffle. On display were beautiful pieces of art, useful objects encrusted with shells and more. There were rare shells, common local shells, oddities, and even shell “hair.”
Two-year-old Stone Allgaier enjoyed “kids day” at the 39th Annual Shell Show. Stone touched a live starfish, his father commented, “My hope is he grows up with the same love for the ocean that I have, that’s why I brought him.”
The proceeds of the Shell Show support the Marco Island Shell Club Scholarship and Education Fund.
