Got the winter blues? No problem. Products from Darlene’s Shells give your customers those beachy vibes from the comfort of their own homes. From sea animal jewelry and novelties to every type of seashell you can think of, Darlene’s has it all.
Established in the early 1970’s, Darlene’s Shells is a family founded and owned business in Palmetto, Florida. Darlene McCormick started out with a personal collection of shells and handmade creations in her own living room. Her passion soon outgrew the confines of their home and before long, she and her husband relocated the business to the warehouse where the company now resides. Now run by Darlene’s brother, Ed, the company has been introducing more high quality products each year.
The company specializes in different kinds of shells, including cut and dyed shells, and turns them into masterpieces. Darlene’s Shells offers night lites, chimes and chandeliers, ornaments and garland, and other home decor. They also offer other beachy products, including decorative nets, bundles of sea glass, magnets, jewelry, sand dollars, shark teeth, and more.
Most of the product raw materials are imported from the Philippines, India, Taiwan, Thailand and Mexico. These coastal communities locally consume the shellfish and the leftover byproduct (the shell) is then processed and used for shell crafts and souvenirs. Darlene’s Shells procures their products in this manner to encourage and ensure less waste of resources and to help support local fishing villages and communities who rely on the shellfish for both food sustenance and resource economics.
For beautiful, genuine beach products, buy from Darlene’s Shells and know you’re also helping fishing villages around the world with their sustainable resourcing. The company has beautiful showrooms at the warehouse in Palmetto as well as in Atlanta at Americasmart 1229-b, and two tractor trailer showrooms that travel the eastern U.S..
