For a small province on the East Coast of Canada Prince Edward Island is a mighty 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 an annual seaglass festival in Souris, find up to date information at the seaglass festival Souris, PEI.
I'll put you in touch with a seaglass workshop where you will learn to wire wrap seaglass and keep as a souvenir. 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.

Handpick surf tumbled seaglass from our treasure chest that is re-filled daily and fill a bag to take home and turn into crafts or put in a jar and admire from your Island vacation..
I seem to find more time to walk the beaches and look for seaglass than I do building my Etsy shop. All seaglass items in my on-line shop are genuine seaglass hand picked by me on the shores of Prince Edward Island.
First I'm Grandma with grandchildren, then second I'm Grandma pouring tea in our tearoom, and third I'm Grandma blogging about what I like to do "on Grandma's Afternoons" Blog Site. I blog about PEI, Seaglass, my wee little Tea Room & Gardening.
A pirate's treasure chest full of seaglass sits high off the beach (in our gift shop) and is already dug out waiting of you to pick a genuine piece of PEI seaglass.

Workshops daily M-F 11am to 4pm during store hours. For ages 6 to 60+ $15 per person. The gift shop sells tools, wire, and seaglass to many who want to become pirates of the sea and further their new hobby, or as souvenirs of the Island.
There is just something that makes you go, "hum!" when a smooth piece of seaglass, tumbled on the ocean floor for over a 100 years is held between your fingers.
