Shells at JoAnn

Post by Marshmelo76 » Mon Jul 15, 2013 7:34 am

I just got a decent size bag of shells at Jo-Ann today for $2. They have several 50% off printable coupons on their website and this bag was regularly $3.99. They also had a HUGE bag for $14.99 I think. I was able to use 8 shells from the bag I got for $2.

I got my shells from a 99 cents store. My crab Fawkes changed into one, then another, then another! I got them for a $1.19.Note: Even if there's only ONE decent shell in a bag of 30, buy it! You can use the rest for the tank, or to decorate the bathroom (you should see ours!)

If anyone hasn't read the cannonical article on hermit shells, this is it.http://www.hermit-crabs.com/shellpics.htmlIt explains what they look for in a shell.

If you live near a World Market they sell a big bag for $20. I went in there and switched the shells out of the bags and took the ones I could use. XD I don't think you can do that, but they are still getting their money worth. It's not like I'm steeling.

I had wondered about World Market. Good to know.

Thanks, Keg! Great read. I perused most of her website before I bought my first crabs but either didn't read that part or don't remember it. The turbo does seem to be the shell of choice for my PP's. I guess it's that mother-of-pearl interior!
