Seashell Hire

Do you have a nautical / sea themed event or wedding coming up soon? We offer a seashell hire service where, if your order is likely to be in excess of £400, we can quote a weekly hire rate which  will make a superb seashell display affordable.

We have dealt with many events companies and wedding organisers over the years and see the trends before each wedding season. We stock up on the best lines but can offer great advice and an enticing hire rate if you need seashells in bulk.

Please email Jamie or Lisa on or send a text to 07711 247762 for rates on large packs of seashells or advice on nautical event themes. Seashell hire is strictly limited to retail value of £400 and terms and conditions apply.


Shell bag Information

We buy our seashell bag assortments from the two most reputable shell suppliers in the UK and are probably now their biggest clients. All our bags of seashells for sale come with ecological certification and are sustainable. Scroll through our listings and it won't take you long to realise that most of these products have been partially eaten first. And that's the way we want to keep it. Our best selling starfish are washed ashore and our children understand the importance of preservation as well as we do. Charitable donations through our shops are weighted towards the RNLI and marine conservation. We only sell online a small proportion of the seashells we sell in our shops, so if we're too far to pop down and visit, please call Jamie on 01202 285163 or email at if you can't find what you're after but you know it's out there and want to purchase from a reputable shell supplier. We have large corporate accounts and frequently sell our shells to wedding parties and interior designers. As well as shells for use in schools and shells for offices.


White Shell Pack - DG4054

White shell pack

White shell pack

We frequently get asked for varied seashells in white and for many uses ranging from corporate table decor and weddings to children's party gifts. This year we have put together a shell pack in white which will perfectly cater for all needs. Each pack measures 13 cms across. We have cellophaned them so they can easily be presented as gifts and also opened up for scattering. Please refer back to these seashells individually on our website but each pack will approximately contain a 6 cms white pointer starfish,  a 13 cms English scallop seashell, a couple of 3 cms pearlised trochas, 4 to 5 heart cockle seashells measuring 3 cms, 3 x 3cms  white strombus seashells and several 2 cms white tibia seashells. All in all the perfect combination and one put together with you, our customers in mind!  Maybe we should do these in green and brown too, but for now it's the "white shell pack".

These are very popular as wedding shell packs for people planning a beach themed wedding or for use as wedding favours.

The pictures show the pack opened to reveal the contents.

Large bag of polished shells

Bag of shells

Selection from our bag of shells

Our larger sea shell bags of polished shells come with bigger shells than the smaller 350 grammes unpolished shell bags below. They weigh approximately 700 grammes and contain about twenty different and interesting varities of shell which are of a size that we could sell individually in the shop. They will include polished trochas, scallops, snails, murexes and cowries and represent great value showing lots of colours. A couple of shell bags will create a great shell display or theme for the home. A good way to buy an interesting variety of attractive shells. We have a picture here of the shells inside and outside the bag provided. There are about 20 shells in each bag measuring on average 7cms and most of them are polished having been sourced in the Philippine Islands.

White Shell Pack in Wicker Basket

White shells in a wicker basket

White shell pack

A pretty selection of small seashells and these come in a wicker basket which measures 4 inches by 3 inches - ( 12 cms x 9 cms ). To give you a more accurate idea they weigh in at about 150 grams and the starfish which appears in all baskets is 5 to 7 cms.

The shells have white as the main colour theme and there are at least 20 in each basket and many measure over an inch. With trochas, bubble shells, scallops (some with a little colouring) and cockles you have just about everything you need for a gift pack or feature shell range.

We like these a lot and these and our scallop seashell packs come in a limited supply. We do run out (although we try not to) so reserve or buy early.
