Real starfish and model starfish

Seashell Information

We buy seashells and dried starfish from the two most reputable shell suppliers in the UK and are probably now their biggest clients. All our 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 info@dorsetgifts.com 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 as starfish wedding decorations and to interior designers. As market leaders we promise to see you right!!!!

Knobbly Starfish - 3 to 4 inches wide

Knobbly starfish

Knobbly starfish

Of all the starfish we sell these knobbly starfish are the ones that our customers pick up, look at, feel the texture of and talk to one another about. Personally, we prefer the tigers and the pointers but there's something about knobbly star fish that captures the imagination of the public and it's probably not just the name! Yep, they have knobbles and are a rustic ocean like colour - they've got the octopus in them we suppose. Definitely an interesting and beautiful sea creature but be quick as stock often runs low.

The knobbly bits are natural and do sometimes break and only occasionally will a knobbly starfish have all knobbles intact... the pictures are a fair representation of the state of knobbliness you as our customer should expect in return for your money!

Small Rustic Starfish

Flat rustic starfish

Flat rustic starfish

Flat rustic starfish

These delicate small rustic starfish measure 2 to 3 inches in diameter and are virtually flat. Consequently they are often used for shell craft work. We recently had a customer building and designing a shell house who used these in a frieze all the way along one wall, and they looked great. Another good use is of course wedding decorations or for nautically themed dinner parties. In our shop, children will pick one of these up to buy for home or a small present. Lots of uses, no excuses.
