I'm sure that many of us have picked
up seashells during visits to the beach. However, you
probably haven't ever seen this shop's wide range of
gorgeous seashells, made into beautiful, practical items
such as lamps, wallets, mirrors, curtains and earrings.
The Urchin Lamp goes for NT$2,380 while a seashell painting
is NT$2,400. The owner proudly notes that his shop is
the largest seashell supermarket in Taiwan, an observation
this writer is happy to agree with. There are thousands
of different kinds of seashells on the shelves. Depending
its rarity, a single seashell can go from NT$5 to more
than NT$10,000. This is a great place for people who
love exploring new things. There are also classes to
teach you how to create your own practical items from
these beautiful seashells.
