Philadelphia Shell Show


Every October, I always look forward to attending the Philadelphia Shell Show held at the Academy of Natural Sciences. As a seasoned beachcomber, I have collected shells from beaches around the world, so I always appreciate looking at other’s collections from exotic islands and faraway places. What’s even more fun is the shell art section of the show ranging from paintings to more traditional sailor’s valentines. And after seeing some unusual species and imaginative shell interpretations it’s always wonderful to browse the shell market and see what treasures vendors from across the country behold.
