hermit crabs
Oct 2018 • Couples
We went in there looking for souvenirs for our daughters and came out with crabs! I am sure that joke has been done to death, but I could not resist! They sell some of the cutest stuff and as I am sure you have guessed hermit crabs. The person who helped us was very knowledgeable and made sure we knew how to take care of them. it was such a fun place!

Lots of souvenirs to chose from! We bought a Rehoboth Christmas ornament there. They had several to chose from. The also gave our kids cute little seashells for free and allowed everyone a taste of their fudge. Fudge was good! Workers were young but well mannered and nice!

Shells and Hermit crabs

I love to get my hermit crabs here every year. Great staff and website. They have a huge hermit crab almost the size of a real soft shell crab, pretty awesome.

Thank you for your kind words. Yes we have been selling hermit crabs since my parents started in 1953. My Dad discovered them on Peanut Island sometime in the late 50's in the middle of the inner coastal canal just north of Ft. Lauderdale. We went there and collected them all my life. ... And then started collecting in the Florida Keys. Later we started getting them from the Caribbean Islands, Belize and South America. I think my Dad was the first to sell hermits in the USA. He invented the wire cage back then. Bought Baltimore Wire and got a truck load of Maxwell coffee lids to make the cages with pig hooks. He made 1,000's and 1,000's Then he transferred the product making to Industry of the Blind Industries and Services in MD and they made them for us and everyone as by that time the Hermit craze started. Our Giant hermit is called Sand T Claws We have a couple over in the downtown shop too called Shell We Pinch. They do grow large (as big as baseballs) as long as they can find a shell. They come from the smaller uninhabited islands. I am glad you discovered our web site under hermits. It is years of studying them and servicing them that we have learned all the tricks. seashellshop.com It is full of information and answers all the questions. Thank you again I hope you were able to try our home made fudge when in the store We make it daily. I look forward to meeting you someday when visiting our beautiful beach town Rehoboth Beach in Delaware. Sea Shell Shop Patty

Amazing gift store
Jan 2017 • Solo
Tons and tons of beachy, unique, beautiful choices at this shop. Spend an hour just looking and I guarantee you'll find something to take home. Ask for a sample of their delicious fudge and take some home. This is in the heart of Rehoboth Ave or on the main highway coming into touristville. Kids, parents and the whole family will find treasures.

Fantastic
Aug 2016
We always stop at then shop on route #1 because it has a putt-golf course. We had our great-granddaughter with us and she really enjoyed the time. She is only 3 1/2, but a good time was enjoyed by all. The shop inside is fantastic. a must stop while in this area.

WOW thank you for that wonderful review. What a special day to bring your GREAT-granddaughter. Oh How lucky she is. I know myself the enjoyment of being a Grammy There is nothing like it. I am so happy you enjoyed our "Shell We Golf" and stopped in the "Sea Shell Shop" store. We have been in business since 1979 in Rehoboth Beach and we truly are a family business. My two sons (third generation) now are the General managers. My parents started the first shops in 1953 in Ft Lauderdale. Next time down at our beautiful beach stop in at our newest adventure opening next summer Shell We Bounce Trampoline Park We will be located on Rt 9 heading towards Georgetown. Again thank you I look forward to meeting you some day. Maybe on the Mini Golf when I'm with my three Grands ages 5, 3 and 1. Patty Sea Shell Shop

Cute little shop

I love this shop. I've been going here since I was a little girl. They have great souvenirs and toys for kids as well as a large selection of sea shells. The staff is always helpful every time I visit.

Thank you for that very nice review. Children have alway been important to us and as our store motto says "Where little HANDS are Always Welcome". Yes, we have been in business since 1979 (my parents since 1953, IN FT LAUDERDALE) and I am the second generation so I guess I forget it does seem possible someone would grow up from back then but it does happen. I would say That would make me a Grammy now and YES that is exactly what I am, a Grammy of three beautiful children..... Our sons are now in the business so they are the third generation. We try very hard to have a friendly staff but form time to time someone slips thru the cracks until corrected. We have over 40 students from 11 different countries for the summer helping us staff our stores. Each year the countries and numbers shifts a little. They are so enjoyable but do need some English help and some patience from our customers. When they leave the Sea Shell Shop we make sure they can speak English and many very fluently That is our goal as in their futures it helps them so much. I hope next time you are in Rehoboth Beach and visit one of our Sea Shell Shop locations I'll get to meet you. Be sure and ask for a FREE sample of our home made fudge made daily. Thank you again Patty Sea Shell Shop
