A couple of weekends ago, I headed out to Morro Bay for a little day trip. Whenever I visit this seaside town, my eye is always drawn to the pretty pink and white sign of The Shell Shop. This time, I finally stepped inside the store and took a look at the thousands of shells and other curiosities for sale. There were so many interesting things to see, I had to snap a few photos.
There are shells from all over the world, as well as starfish, coral, and plenty of other oceanic odds and ends. Each piece has a sign displaying its name and where it is from. Also for sale are objects covered in shells, and novelty items like shell sculptures, conch lamps, and shell chandeliers.
Everyone needs a little googley-eyed shell owl, right? My favorite part of the shop is the signage, both the painted signs in the window and of course that giant shell-shaped sign.
Have you ever been to Morro Bay? I'd like to start sharing more places close to home, I just need to make myself feel less awkward about taking photos in public. There are actually a lot of neat places around here.
