Made from over 60 oyster shells, these unique oyster shell trees bring a little piece of the Florida coast to your home. No tree is complete without its topper, which in this case is an authentic starfish. As each oyster shell tree is handcrafted from actual shells, colors and exact tree dimensions may vary.
*Included in the picture are our Oyster Shell Angel Ornaments. Angel ornaments sold separately.
Oysters are a staple of Apalachicola's history. Harvested and sold locally since 1836, they are a symbol of the town's past and present. Though oyster harvesting within Apalachicola Bay has been temporarily suspended to allow for revitalization of the oyster population, oysters from neighboring regions and states continue to be a mainstay in the restaurants of Apalach. Ensuring that no aspect of the revered mollusk is wasted, the discarded shells can be found throughout town lining sidewalks, adorning flowerbeds, and utilized by local artisans in a variety of unique art.
