History of the Sea Shell Shop

First Sea Shell Shop, 1953
Lauderdale by the Sea
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
Parents of Present Owners
Mama & Papa Sea Shell Shop
Vince and Ginny

A Second Generation Family Business

Once upon a time in 1953, some 40 years plus ago, Mama and Papa Sea Shell had two little shops by the sea, the first in Ft. Lauderdale by the Sea, Florida, and later a second in Ocean City, Maryland. As time went by, Papa Sea Shell passed away into the heavens and there sprang the birth of a new Sea Shell Shop on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. A year later came the birth of yet another Sea Shell Shop in Nags Head, North Carolina. As time passed Mama Sea Shell went to be with papa but the newborn Sea Shell Shops continued to grow. 1979 saw the close of the Ocean City Shop and in 1983 the original Sea Shell Shop in Florida closed. The Nags Head shop closed in 1989. In Rehoboth Beach the original boardwalk shop was moved to its present location on Rehoboth Avenue and then followed the birth of two more Sea Shell Shops, a Dewey Beach Shop in 1984, and a Bethany Beach Shop in 1990. Try our new adventure, the first “Shell We Golf” miniature golf course and the largest Sea Shell Shop out on Coastal Hwy., Rt. One, opened in 1996. As time goes by and a third generation graduates from college, you never know where or when the birth of a new Sea Shell Shop may happen. We are a second generation family business and are always happy to have you and your family in our shops and, as always, “little HANDS are always welcome at all the Sea Shell Shops.”

Delmarva and Delaware’s largest store,
of nautical gifts, and shells on the shore,
with 10,000 square feet of shopping and more,
plus 1,000’s of pages of online shopping galore.
