Sanibel Shell Fair & Show March 1-3, 2012

Have you ever wondered what the name of the shells were that you were seeing on the beaches?  Well come on out to The Sanibel Shell Fair & Show which will be at The Community House Thursday and Friday from 9 – 5 and Saturday from 9-4

The Shell Fair will offer an entire tent full of local shells for sale.  There will also be shell creations made by the Shell Club for sale and of course a bit of education on how to identify all those shells we find so plentiful on our beaches.

The Shell Club presents a juried show, both scientific and artistic – with participants from all over.

This should be a great time.
