It's amazing to me how many little treasures the beach offers. What started as beach combing for glass, has turned into so much more. My understanding is that this happens with a lot of beachcombers.
Often times sea glass collectors also include sea pottery/china in their stash. Much like glass, these pieces are found in salt water and have spent years tumbling in the waves and crashing into rocks.
Also like sea glass, each piece tells a story; each piece is a bit of history; each piece has either personal or monetary value.
Shells can be found on any beach. Much like sea glass, the colours and types of shells will vary.
