For a small province on the East Coast of Canada Prince Edward Island is a great summer vacation spot with 690 miles of beaches to explore. A large quantity of seaglass has been found on the Island, so large that a lighthouse in the town of Souris is home to a sea glass museum. Prince Edward Island holds a sea glass festival in Souris each year where you will find me and sea glass vendors a like. For this years festival information go to the seaglass festival Souris, PEI.
I'll show you where you can register an "Island Experience" learning to wire wrap seaglass and keep as a souvenir (when you come for a visit). Offer a blog with a photo gallery and ideas. Help you explore where to find sea glass on our beaches. And if you haven't found sea glass of your own you can check out our Gift Shop in PEI or shop on-line where you can buy handcrafted jewellery or seaglass in bulk, so stick around it's addictive.
Located inside our Bed and Breakfast is a shop called "Island Made" at Beside the Trail Bed & Breakfast at 545 Malpeque Rd in Charlottetown is home to Cindy's Gift Shop. In the Island Made Gift Shop you will find wire wrapped pendants, bracelets, necklaces and seaglass items.
