Wholesale seashells from Dorset Gifts

White Shell Pack - DG4054

White shell pack

White shell pack

We frequently get asked for varied mixed seashell assortments in white and for many uses ranging from corporate table decor and weddings to children's party gifts. This year we have put together a shell pack in white which will perfectly cater for all needs. Each white shell pack measures 13 cms across. We have cellophaned them so they can easily be presented as gifts and also opened up for scattering. Please refer back to these seashells individually on our website but each pack will approximately contain a 6 cms white pointer starfish,  a 13 cms English scallop seashell, a couple of 3 cms pearlised trochas, 4 to 5 heart cockle seashells measuring 3 cms, 3 x 3cms  white strombus seashells and several 2 cms white tibia seashells. All in all the perfect combination and one put together with you, our customers in mind!  Maybe we should do these in green and brown too, but for now it's the "white shell pack".

These mixed white seashells are very popular as wedding shell packs for people planning a beach themed wedding or for use as wedding favours.

The pictures show the white seashell pack opened to reveal the contents showing the mixed beach seashells and starfish. Contents always white or pearlised but do vary due to newer batches.

Green Turbo Shells on a Scallop Pack - DGTS07

We've always liked green turbo shells as a display on a simple English Atlantic scallop and to add a dash of the sea in the bathroom, tables or elsewhere we recommend this simple but colourful combination with the scallop measuring approx 11 cms and each green turbo at least 5 cms. We have sold many of these to aquarium owners who are looking for natural seashells for a fishtank.

Our Smallest Beach Mix - DGSMIX


We recently had a lovely lady visit our shop and kindly complain that we didn’t have really really tiny seashells. After making all the excuses that immediately came to mind I did realise that over the years we have collected all sorts and types of tiny seashells which of course are perfect for craftwork. We have put in a couple of 5p pieces which I retrieved from my wife's purse to show just how small these are. To keep interesting we mix in a few slightly larger seashells but nearly all of these will be half a centimetre mixing up to a scattering of 2 cms seashells. Our mix is blended with interesting shells and if you go for a kilo these are being sold at the very best price. 

200 grammes at £2.95
500 grammes at £4.95
