One of these days I’m going to get that little house by the sea. Go to sleep to the sound of crashing waves and wake up feeling fresh and ready for a sandy, salty swim, but until then I will satisfy my craving by filling my home with little reminders of the walk I took, the sunset I watched and the shells I collected with my son on our afternoon stroll while on holidays. If you are super lucky you live really close to the beach and can get there often, but if you’re like me and live inner-city (and let’s face it, fitting the beach in while juggling school, work and kids is no mean feat) we have a way you can make your house feel beachy every day. These clam shells are extraordinarily beautiful, replicate the real thing incredibly closely and come in several sizes to accommodate many uses, such as a champagne bucket for a party…
Why do we love them?
Real giant clam shells are suffering terribly as a result of over fishing, exploitation and habitat loss. In many cases it is believed the giants take 20-50 years to reach full maturity. For these reasons we only stock the fake kind, which are made from poly resin in a perfect clammy shape while being smooth and waterproof to provide you with the perfect multi-use bowl.
They can withstand water, ice, dirt and most especially – champagne! Did we mention they are good for a party?
The smallest one we stock is not only gorgeous but makes a wonderful addition to the bathroom as a super cute soap dish, but use it however you like. We’ve found them useful as jewellery holders and makeup dishes too.
Due to their high demand, the giants and large size are not currently in stock, but we will do anything for our lovely customers so email me at email@example.com to let me know what you are after and i’ll do my best to make it happen!
