Tons and tons of beachy, unique, beautiful choices at this shop. Spend an hour just looking and I guarantee you'll find something to take home. Ask for a sample of their delicious fudge and take some home. This is in the heart of Rehoboth Ave or on the main highway coming into touristville. Kids, parents and the whole family will... More

Walked by here the other day and was surprised to see that they added a window from the shop out onto the avenue. This area now contains their fudge. There was a young man at the window inviting everyone to come try a FREE sample. We did sample the cheesecake fudge and the cherry fudge. However, the samples were very... More

Thank you for stopping buy our new FUDGE window at the Sea Shell Shop. I understand you thought the sample was small. We have unlimited sampling so you could have tried all 34 flavors or asked for more. That is why we use small sampling spoons and of course each employee does it differently.

This shop has a lot of beach-related items. If it is related to a beach or seashell, they probably have it. They also advertise homemade fudge that seems to be popular although I did not purchase any of it.
