"The crafts created by the Shell Point resident artisans span the creative continuum from jewelry to woodworking, to fine needlework. Some of the painting and photography is represented in one-of-a-kind greeting cards," said Teri Kollath, manager of The Academy of Lifelong Learning and Volunteer Services for Shell Point. "A lot of time and dedication goes into each item sold there, and additionally the entire Gift Shop is operated by resident volunteers. Many items are created in our resident woodshop, pottery studio, stained glass and lapidary studio, painting studio and even books from resident authors are represented."

All of the items in the Gift Shop are handcrafted by the residents of Shell Point, and include holiday wreaths, shell art, handbags, wood carvings, jewelry, pottery, paintings, books, floral arrangements, and more. For more information, please call (239) 466-1111 ext 7534.
