Quality Shells for Christmas, Crafts & Decor!

Even though we live near the Pacific Ocean there are just certain types of seashells which we don't have easy access to.  Having a trusted source like saves a lot of effort when we are looking for various Starfish for our Coastal Christmas....or bulk shells for craft projects.

Our living room seashell bowl - we added little blue finger starfish; 
a sugar starfish & a beautiful jungle starfish.
Starfish are absolutely breathtaking creatures. Sometimes called “sea stars”, dried starfish are often used in starfish crafts, as starfish wedding favors, and even as home decor accessories! is our connection for Sand Dollars, Seashells and Starfish. Based in Palmetto, Florida this quality online business offers a lovely variety of individual shells as well as by the bag for your crafting needs.

A Jungle Starfish becomes part of our Holiday vignette!
We recently received some Starfish samples from this online superstore and we were extremely pleased with the price, quality and care in packaging.  Our sample package included various sizes of  Jungle Starfish; Sugar Starfish; Blue Finger Starfish and, of course, some of the unique White Knobby ones too!

The name “Jungle Starfish” makes you think these unique starfish must be a bit wild looking, correct? Not so! Jungle starfish actually tend to be very consistent in shape, unlike typical starfish where the shape does vary. The arms on jungle starfish are always straight out, and are a light orange color. They’re known for being very durable starfish and are rather thick, decreasing the likelihood that they’ll break.

We just love the look of the Jungle Starfish; which we added to our Christmas Tree!
Sugar starfish are always a favorite! These charming starfish feature small granules on them, resembling the look of sugar. There are both large and small “sugar” granules, with about 90% of each sugar starfish being made up of the smaller granules. They’re often used in weddings, and look even more magnificent with gold or silver glittered sprinkled onto them.

Blue finger starfish are just so stunning! They’re perfect as wedding decorations when you need to insert a bit of “something blue” into your wedding. Commonly called “pencil starfish”, blue finger starfish are indeed blue while living, but do lose some of their color. "We dye them blue again to ensure they feature that beautiful vivid blue color once again."

We had never actually seen White Knobby Starfish before and these beauties each measured from 3" to 4" straight across. They are a pretty rigid starfish and do not break easily so they are great for using in craft projects or as ornaments!
