A feature of our shop is a variety of beautifully
crafted "Sailor Valentines", which are three dimensional, intricate
shellwork designs usually involving a piece of scrimshaw art work as a
center of the design, and all mounted in a shadowbox frame.
pieces are recreations of shell art work brought home to loved ones
after a long voyage at sea by 19th century sailors. Also featured are
shell art mirrors, Nantucket basket and shell art centerpieces, shell
art trinket boxes, folk art decorated and hand grained painted
furniture. All of these pieces are handcrafted at the Sow's Ear Farm
