(5)   received my order yesterday and I am very pleased! The Students at my school are very excited about the collection! I don't do a lot of business from websites because I am a little skeptical about the reliability factor. So I was very happy to get my order and the quality of the items. The Blow Fish is exotic! Thanks!!!   (REBECCA A.)...... KENTUCKY.

(6)  I placed an order for sand dollars on September 11, 2006. My order was received on September 15, 2006. I just wanted to extend a gracious thank you.

(9)  Richard, I received my specimen shells this morning. I don't often endorse
dealers but I would like to thank you
  sincerely for  my shipment. They were packed great and with lots of TLC.
Everything was perfect. The quality is
  of the shells is unsurpassed. The prices are the best on the web. Sincerely
Thanks, Phillip........  PHILLIP F.    HICKORY, NC

(10)  My party is Friday night, so if it gets here Thursday, that would be
perfect!  (I am using them for Christmas decorations, including a
tree.)  Thanks so much for the special attention.  I will definitely
recommend your site and use it again myself.  I ordered some shells from
another site (*******) and they left out half my order and
then refused to send them saying I must have somehow misplaced them!  I
am very happy to have found your site!.......... C Raley, Woodbridge, VA.

(11)  Richard, you're incredible!  How did you fill and dispatch my order so fast?

I'm in love with my starfish, thank you ever so much for making my day/year !
I'll be back for more!
Flo L.......... AMELIA ISLAND, FL.

(12)  I just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how pleased with my order from you. I didn't expect the quality of the shells. I am really impressed with the things I got. I am going to tell my friends who use shells in there crafts.
I also was very happy with the way you kept me informed about the order and when it would come. Thank you so much for your professionalism and attention to detail. I will be using you in the future and I like having someone who I can depend on.  Thank You so much. Norma M........ Odessa, MO. 

(13)  I must say I was delighted when I opened the box.  I have an extensive shell collection, but never saw a sand dollar the size you sent!  I love shells, and the ones you sent are beautiful, and very reasonably priced.  Thanks for the great packing!...... MARTHA H.......MELBOURNE, FL.

(14)  The last shipment I received was awesome! Please make sure the frog shell and syrinx aruanus are as large and detailed as possible, for I am using them as examples in the classroom. Thank you so much!....... MICHAEL J...... WOODCLIFF LAKE, NJ. 

(15)  Hi, I recently ordered some coral - brain and branch.  It is wonderful.  Is there a chance you will have more in the near future?  Recently, I placed an order for a bag of mixed shells, sand dollars & star fish.  They were all absolutely beautiful!! 

I am so happy with what we received.  They are for my daughters wedding decorations.  They will be perfect.
Thanks for your help......... C. MCCOY..........  EAST LYME, CT.
(16)  Hello Richard - Your Squamosa arrived today - in perfect condition.  Thank you for your careful packing.  Thank you for the little basket you used in the packing.  Thank you for the pen!  You picked out a good looking shell, thank you for that, too.  Already I am enjoying it.
J. Earl........ Silver Spring, MD.
(17)  I received the order today.  I am very pleased.  Nothing broken.  Thank you so much.  B. Wakefield.......... HIGH SPRINGS, FL.
(18) Dear Richard :  Thank you so much for processing this so quickly, and for the extra shells that you included.  I know our engagement party will be so much prettier for the inclusion of these.  FYI, we live in a little victorian community by the sea here in Rhode Island; we will be placing one of the three larger shells on each of the aqua cloth napkins for the guests to take with them. The theme throughout is all about living by the sea - our 1880 built community facility overlooks the ocean which of course makes this so much better - your shells will become part of our history and we thank you for helping to make this a memorable event..........L. Ermelin.......... WARWICK, RI.
(19)  As for Deltona Seashells, you have no idea how refreshing it was to deal with a nice person who combined courtesy with obvious knowledge of the business - after spending my hard earned money at another web site which felt free to implicate that other sites were selling junk while blowing their own "conch". ........... MARY O.   ........ NORTH CAROLINA.
(20)  Thank you for shipping the sand dollars so promptly, they arrived earlier today and were all in good condition, I am sure the church school children will enjoy  receiving  them and hearing the legend that is with them. 
I will be ordering from you again soon since I also make things out of seashells.
Thank you again........ S. JOHNSON........ NEW BEDFORD, MA.
(21)  Thanks so much for your prompt processing of my order...it arrived the next day.  It's rare to get such excellent customer service.  Your company will do well.
G. Altick..........ATLANTIC BEACH, FL.
(22)  Hi Richard, 

I received my tracking number.....

Also, I want to thank you for your professional assistance......

I am excited to receive my order and I look forward to ordering more from you in the future for my Beach Jewelry Collection........Many Regards.......... Marie B., New York, NY

(23)  I received my order promptly, very well packaged, and was so pleased with the quality of your shells.  I have searched many websites and yours is right at the top.  I will be a returning customer for sure.  Thanks so much for excellent service and I especially appreciate being able to track my order so I can plan to be home for the delivery.  Thanks again!   Barb S...........MCQUEENEY TEXAS.

(24)   Just wanted to thank you for the starfish they are perfect and were packed perfectly Thanks again

Linda D............ EAST HANOVER, NJ

(25)  I attended our Wood Turners Club Meeting last night and during the "Show
& Tell" part of the meeting, I showed the Christmas ornament I made
using one of the shells you sent.  The ornament was a great hit! 
Everybody was interested in where I obtained the shell. All I could
remember was your company name but I promised to get further information
to them.

Working wood down to such a small degree on a big

lathe is a challenge, that is why I
requested the largest shells available.  The larger the shell, the
larger the wood can be made (which is safer for us) and it is easier to
keep the size and balance in prospective.

In appreciation for your efforts to me, I sent the following email to a
person in our club who will disperse it to all our local members.  (It
will most likely be viewed by the International Woodturner's Association
as well.)


This is where I purchased my sea urchins.  


The above company "Deltona Seashells" sent shells closest to my written
request.  They even included a few extras of a different nature, were
cheaper in price, and will replace any that may be broken in transit as
the shipment is insured. I had my order in a few days.  They offer the
choice of using a regular credit card or Pay Pal.  (Using Pay Pal will
slow the shipment down an additional 5 days.)  If you cannot get to a
local shell store to make a purchase, this company would be my first

Two other orders were placed with other companies, one of which I
canceled, and another who sent me totally useless shells having been
sent the same written instructions regarding size and purpose.


Best Regards and thanks once again for your attention to my request.


(26)  First of all, I am so very HAPPY with ALL of the plants I received from you (Order ID 9306)!  They are big, beautiful, and very, very healthy.  Impressive, to say the least!  You have made me a longtime customer.  You are a pleasure to do business with.  Thank you......Joann

(27) I just wanted to let you know how very pleased I was
with ordering from you!  I received my shipment
yesterday - nothing was broke and I was amazed at how
quickly I received the order.  Thank you again so much
for making this a pleasant shopping experience!

Best Regards,

C Hiller

(28) - d. delacruz:
just wanted to tell you before an moment went by, how much i am enjoying my shells, the packing was great--everything  i give you and your company an a++  thank you for your care of this customer!!

(29)   I am getting married next March in Jamaica.  My mother-in-law planned a beach themed bridal shower for me.  I made the shells into magnets and gave them as favors.  Everyone absolutely loved them!  Its been less than a week since the shower and I am getting calls from guests asking if I have any shells left because they would like another magnet or two. 

It was just by chance I tripped across your website and I am so glad I did.  You have a wide selection, reasonable prices and no one can compete with your excellent customer service.  No sooner did I place my order did the pacakge show up on my doorstep!
As I finalize my wedding plans I will definitely be placing another order.  I'm thinking of ordering a large shell to hold our rings.  A twist on the traditional pillow.
Thank you,
S. Berti
(30) I received my order and they we better than I ever expected. I can't wait to do more business with you again. Thank You so Much.

R. Rios.
(32)  Richard
I received the package yesterday evening. Thank you! I
just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased
with the product. I was a little weary of ordering at
first bc it can be uncomfortable to deal with
individuals online, you never know what you are
getting into! But I am so happy I took the chance...my
fiance and I are using the seashells to create
centerpieces for our beach wedding in May.  We are
so pleased with everything when we opened the
packages. We would definately recommend you to any
customer and will be ordering a few more items again
to complete our table arrangements. Thanks again, we
couldnt have picked a better company to buy from!

Have a great day!


(33)  I just received my box of shells/ sand dollars today. I wanted to take time out to say THANK YOU so much, they are all in great shape, with the sand dollars being just about perfect. They are wedding guest gifts and I couldn't have asked for better. So again thank you so much.

K. Stockton and S. Frith, OTIS, OR.

(34)  I just wanted to tell you how satisfied and happy I was with my first order from you.  Everything went above my expectations.  All the shells are in beautiful condition and are the pefect additions to my collection.  There were more shells included than I had expected, and the mixed bags had a wonderful selection of pretty shells.  Everything was perfect, and I will be back soon to place another order.  Thank you!

(36)  Greetings, Richard!
The box arrived today and everything inside is 
wonderful!!  Beautiful and unbroken!  Thanks so very much for such 
great customer service!  And we couldn't be more pleased with the 
quality of product and care of packaging that you have.  All items 
received from you will be used and cherished at our oldest daughter's 
upcoming wedding.  Afterwards, she hopes to assemble a pretty 
assortment of shells in a glass vase as a wedding keepsake.
Thanks for everything,
B. Popillo, NC.


I want to thank you so very much for all your help.  The order arrived yesterday with all 30 sand dollars intact. 

 It is nice knowing there are still businesses that work with high ethics and consideration. 

 I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know of requiring shells for their needs!

 Thanks again!

Yesterday I received my order of shells right on time and I am so happy with them.  All the items are just as beautiful as I had hoped!  They arrived in perfect condition, they look great on my coffee table, and your prices are better than any of the other sites I visited while searching for shells.  Thanks for filling my order in a timely fashion.

(50)  Just wanted to let you know that I received my shells, and they were spectacular!!  No other words to describe the quality of the shells I received, along with the fact that they are packaged so lovingly not a single shell had any damage at all.  Absolutely pristine!!  Which is what I was hoping for b/c I needed them to make these sea shell themed shadowboxes for wall decor.  I couldn't have asked for better shells if I had hand-picked them myself - and I am supremely picky!!  Thanks again for a wonderful product.  Here's some pictures of three of the six shadowboxes I have completed so far.  See how pretty your shells look!!

(51)   Dear Richard-

I wanted to send you a message and say thank you so much for the care you took in shipping your product!
The sand dollars arrived, on-time and in perfect condition.  I will definitely use your company in the future!
Thanks for taking pride in your product and service!

I just wanted to let you know, that I am so very pleased with your company, and its products!

(65)  Hi Richard,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for our recent order of both sand dollars, star fish, as well as some other shells for our daughter's beach wedding in the Outer Banks of NC. The shells arrived in perfect condition and compared to prices I have seen in beach specialty shops (.85 vs 3.00) they were quite the bargain. They added quite the charm tied with ribbons and seating cards. The 3-4 inch sand dollars served our purpose as table numbers.

I also felt that we were dealt with in a very personal manner and my questions were always answered.

The "left over" shells will become a beautiful centerpiece and memory of the wedding.

Thanks again for all your help.

(66)  Hi Richard,

I spoke with you over live chat yesterday regarding a damaged coral I received by mail.  I saw that you have comments from customers and I just wanted to express how great you were.
I received my order in the mail and could not believe how wonderful the pieces were in person after only seeing them online.  All these pieces will be used for my upcoming wedding.   One piece did arrive damaged (a very fragile piece that is no longer offered).  I conacted Deltona on their live chat.  Richard instantly provided unforgettable service!  He immediately asked what piece I wanted in exchange for this item and was packaging it up as I was speaking with him.  Richard definitley has a focus and importance in providing the customer  with such accessible and responsive service!  I will surely be a repeat customer.  Thanks again Richard and Deltona......Boston, MA.
Thanks again!
Karyn M.
(67)  I just received some shells from you, from my husband and they are
more beautiful than I expected!
Thanks, also for sending out another one for me.

Wow, I had no idea they would look like this, and so big.

Have a great holiday season.

(68)  Dear Richard,
I couldn't find a place where I could leave feedback for you, so I hope this gets back to you!

I wanted to again Thank You for all your assistance in getting my order straightened out.  We have received the refund for the shipping mistake I made and I greatly appreciate you allowing for my lack of paying attention! 

The shells arrived in perfect order, packaged extremely well and safely!  They not only are in great shape...they are beautiful!  Perfect for the project that I am currently working on!  With every tiny shell I place I am thankful for the fascinating beauty of nature...so intricate, so perfect!  The colors within the shells were nice and uniform as well...so I have not had to pick too much to find like colors.  Thank you for carrying such quality merchandise, available in smaller units, for such affordable prices, for artists like me!

Bless you in your business venture, Richard!

(69)  Hi guys ! I got my air plants settled in for the most part in my viviarium. The air plants I purchased was about 3 months ago or so. I wanted to wait til they were settled in before sending you a pic. Enjoy and thank you ! Look how wonderful they look in my vivarium !
(70)  Hi Richard,

I received my order from Deltona yesterday. I'm very pleased with all
the craft shells, they're exactly what I was hoping for. In April
I'll be ordering more things from you. It's great to have a company I
can trust to send the best.

(72)   Richard,
Please accept my appreciation of your services over these years. You and your company have always dealt with my family in an honest, straight-up manner and that goes a long way in this impersonal world. With the economy being so stagnant I wish I could do more to show our appreciation but I will send this note of witness to the professionalism and fair play Deltona has shown us. We will be long-term customers, low-key!, but verbal cheerleaders of Deltona Seashells, Inc.
B. Beasy Kentucky
(73)  Thank you! The shells are beautiful! I'm totally impressed by the quality, quantity and the way you handled my order so quickly.

(75)  Richard,
Thank you so much for your help today.  The shells you are sending to me will become a special blessing among the members of my 1,100+ congregation as they remember their baptisms and renew their faith this Sunday.  It may (or may not) seem like a big deal to you or your company, but you are truly a blessing to us.  Your willingness to work with me today will make all the difference and I want you to know how much I appreciate your considerate attitude today. Thanks again!
Grace and peace to you,
Pastor Kerry McCormick

(77)  I just ordered some more shells for friends birthday - have a decorated box to fill.  I wanted to show you what I did with my last order from you.  I decorated our Christmas tree.  Your shells are wonderful.  Your descriptions were perfect.  The smallest ones I put in glass balls with sand.  Everyone loved the tree.

are beautiful. Thanks for accepting a check from me instead

my name as a very satisfied customer!

(88)  my shells arrived yesterday and i am perfectly thrilled with them - as i am a texan, i have found it hard to believe that our coastal shell shops DONOT SELL LIGHTNING WHELKS - hard to believe, richard, as it is our state shell - at any rate, the shells are lovely, are a generous size and quite reasonable - you have won a new customer - thank you- ann m. l.

hi! i ordered some starfish from you over a month ago. They were perfect! I used them to make starfish wands for my daughters birthday party. I have a blog, and wrote about the wands and mentioned Deltona Seahells in my post, as well as a link to your site! Here's the post in case you want to check it out..
(94)  I wanted to write a raving review for your business!!!

(97)  Richard,  I just wanted you to know that the package arrived today.  The sand dollars are beautiful and the starfish are perfect!

Our original order was with XXXXXX.  They had other inspirational things we ordered.  Last week I realized that their sand dollars were what you have on your page as "cookies".  They have no holes and didn't go with the legend that I had all typed up.  That is why I was in such a rush to try to get them.   I am giving each person a starfish to remind them that no matter how broken their life may seem at times do to loss of a loved one, loss of a job, sickness God is always there for us to restore us just as he creates a new point(leg) on a starfish if it is broken off.

I cannot thank you enough for going out of your way to get the package to me.  May your life be filled with God's Blessings!     Marilyn
Richard, I received my package from you yesterday. I was surprised to see my branch coral and barnacle cluster. They were both more than I expected and in perfect condition. I may not ever start a saltwater aquarium again and need your service, but I will surely recommend your site to anyone else. Great job!! Thanks, Jimmy J.
(99)  Good morning,

I LOVE your shells!  The shells used are Tectus Fenestratus seashells.
Keep up the great work!    
My best,

(100)  Many thanks...I have just received my order and am very pleased not only with the special packing (everything arrived in perfect condition) but the quality of the shells. They will look beautiful on our tables for our event.

If I'm in need of additional shells at a later time I will certainly order from you!

(101)  Dear Richard,
I want to thank you not only for sending out my recent order perfectly, but so very quick!  I received the order on Friday, 10/21.  I was surprised to see a couple of extra little plants in blush which is so very appreciated.  Thank you!
Please know how much I am enjoying the plants and shells I've purchased from you.  I will, no doubt, place orders in the future following our move early next year.
Richard, I do hope you have a wonderful vacation and upcoming holiday season.
Again, thanks so much!

(105)  Hi Richard and family,

Just letting you know that the paper nautilus shell that I ordered arrived
today - I'm very happy with it, and with your quick service and careful
packaging. Great work, many thanks. All the best from Down Under.

(106)  Thanks for shipping my order so quickly! I wasn't expecting it until after Christmas as the website said there would be a delay.

Thanks also for sending so many air plants in bud/bloom. Though I've been making terrariums for several years, this is my first foray into air plants and it was nice to see some of them at their showiest!

Happy New Year.

Laylage C.


Richard, I have been meaning to drop you a note about the Angle Wing Shells, they arrived in excellent condition and were so much more beautiful than I had expected. You guys ROCK!! Thank you for such excellent and timely service.


(108)  Dear Richard and Deltona Seashells staff,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Richard, I received my two orders late last week and was completely taken aback. Not only were all of the plants beautiful and robust, many of them were either in bloom or beginning to blush. If this was not enough to completely make my day, I discovered that you sent several (actually MANY!) extra plants, each as healthy and lovely as the other. You are very kind and I thank you ever so much for your generosity.
Also, your newly redesigned site is outstanding! When I entered it this evening, I was amazed to see how many other varieties of Tillandsia you are now offering, as well as other plant species.
Again, I thank you so very much for your kindness and for offering wonderful products at reasonable prices.
This ?land lubber' will be back!

(109)  Hi there,
Just wanted to tell you that I just received the white sea coral I ordered
and it is BEAUTIFUL!! You might laugh, but it was intended to be displayed
on a lucite stand and used as a centerpiece on my dining room table.  It
looks gorgeous on my black dining table.

I just wanted to let you know that I am VERY pleased and will tell everyone
where I got it.

Best wishes,
Deb J., Louisiana
Hi Richard & family: My order was delivered today and everything was there and in fine shape. The plants are beautiful and glass bowls/terraria and seashell in perfect shape.
I marvel at your ability to have shipped both my orders (one in December, one in February) with all items present and in beautiful condition. Thank you so much. You seem to be running a wonderful shop.
I do have one question: I bought a bromeliad, which was planted in soil in a small pot. At what point do I transplant it to a larger pot, what size pot, and what type of soil should it be planted in. Do you sell this soil?
Thank you so much!! Marion D 
(111)  Hi! Just to let you know I got my order today and was really very happy with it - the shells are great - Thank You, Mary E.
Wow! I am really impressed!
The shells I ordered have arrived and they are beautiful.
I needed shells for my Hermit crab, but none of the local pet shops carried the correct type.
I ordered ten shells, and you were kind enough to send an extra one.
With eleven shells from which to choose, the crab has been acting like a teenage girl, switching its "clothes" every few hours.
I think it has finally found "the one" and has stopped comparing them, at least for awhile.
Thank you for your excellent service and generosity.
(113) Richard, I will use your business in the future because of the beautiful plants I received. Thank you, Jaye
(114) I found Deltona Seashells through an internet search. I received my order of several large corals. They were packaged extremely well with virtually no damage in shipping. The specimens are by far the most amazing, large specimens I have ever purchased. I use corals for tabletop display and have saltwater aquariums. I give Deltona Seashells my HIGHEST recommendation, buy here!!!  Katie
I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was at my order! The shells arrived in perfect condition with no breakage. It's been a wonderful experience dealing with you - I'm going to place another order very soon.
Thank you again.

Hi my name is Eileen s T. I received my order tues and I am so happy with the plants, I just posted on facebook what a great company you are. I will be visiting your store soon. 
I received the sea shells and the air plant orders about a week ago. Both Orders were in great shape. Plants look very good. I have had air plants before and know how to take care of them. Your air plant brochure is most helpful. 
(118)  know it's a bit late, but I just wanted to thank you for the healthy air plants and professional service. I appreciate it. Janet G
(119)  I just wanted you guys to know that i received my order today!! Everything was in tact and better than i imagined!  Thank you so much guys! :] Even though i got impatient i do know that you were busy. I will definitely be ordering from you guys again!    I do have one question though should i water my air plants now or wait a few days?
(119)  I received my airplants.  I absolutely love them! Thank you for the wonderful customer service. These plants will be wonderful Xmas gifts.   J. WILLIS 
(120)  Hello Richard and all,

I am thankful, as always for your prompt packaging and shipment of sea supplies... You always have SUCH a wonderful variety of items. They really spark the imagination! :-)

Did you happen to have the thicker, flatter version of the White Cay Cay shells (Dogwood) in stock? I hope so!

Can't wait to see them, and the rest of my new shells :-)
Very excited!

Thank you and have a fantastic day,
I received my order of starfish within 2 business days and they are perfect not one broken. I would definitely recommend this site to friends the service is great and the prices fair.

Again your company has exceeded all expectations! The three
P-s apply here. Your wares are PLEASING to the eye; they were securely and flawlessly PACKED; and they were shipped very PROMPTLY! Thank you for the gift, for the years of competent service, and the remarkable inventory you maintain. I can be assured if something is not just right it will be made right! This day and age these attributes are uncommon to rare. As the holidays approach may you and your family, and your employees experience the joys of this celebration of hope!
(123)  Dear Deltona Shells & Staff
I received my order , and I just wanted to take a minute, to let you know how pleased I am with your products, shipping, and a quick turn around after placing my order.
The shells are awesome and will be used to make ordaments for the elderly in nursing homes for Christmas, as I do a lot of wood turning products.
Thanks again and I look forward to doing more business with you in the future
Have a Happy Holiday

Dear Richard and Family,

I just received your beautifully packed box, (and sent in record speed just as I begged you), of seashells, etc.  I am amazed at the beauty of not only your shells but the creation of the one I ordered for my friend's Birthday present.  I am also amazed at how you packaged the box.  Not ONE shell was cracked or broken. A miracle. Thank you so very much for taking the time to handle everything sent so carefully...... Linda B., Chicago, IL
(125)  Today I kept looking for sea shells and there are always minimum of $50 or $100, I don't need that much and finally I found you with good price.

Thank you!

Thank you again,

(127)  HI Rich,

What a wonderful Company, you have been so helpful in helping me get all the supplies I needed for my Dove Tree for our Craft class. I felt like I was working with my personal friend, you really went out of your way to even have your Dear MOM go out into the warehouse and collect doves for me. The package just arrived so greatly packed and nothing broken and so much care was put into the packing and labeling. I'm so Happy that I found your company and most of the ladies I'm working with will be ordering more sand dollars.

Thanks Again,

Madeline C

I received my order today and was completely amazed at the beauty and conditions of the starfishes I ordered!  They are simply beyond my expectations… This comes from a very particular and detailed oriented person, when it comes to selection.   I am so glad I was able to count on Deltona Seashells for my seashells needs!  I will order from you again in the near future!  J

About 2-3 weeks ago we received our latest order from you which was about ten air ferns and a magnet. Since they have arrived we already have had two of them bloom. We would like to thank you so much for the high quality plants that you sent us. We will continue to place orders as we are happy, repeat customers. Thank you, Troy S. Florida.

This is Linda G. and my order number is XXXXXX in which I received today. I just wanted to send you an email and thank you  for the beautiful shells. I haven't been this pleased with an order in a long time. When I opened the package to see how carefully you packaged them I knew I was going to be pleased right off the bat. Each one is just how you described them and even nicer. I am so glad I found you on the web and I will definitely be placing more orders with you in the future. You have found yourself a customer that will keep coming back.
Thank you again

My order arrived this afternoon and I couldn't be happier!  The shells are exceptional in quality, and they'll work perfectly in the art projects I'm currently involved in.  Your selection, quality, and prices are by far the best I've found, and your customer service & very prompt shipping are unsurpassed.  I look forward to doing repeat business!

I've got 2 packages from you already and am expecting another soon.
I've got to tell you, the quality of everything I've received so far has been incredible. Today's package had a convex and a swimming crab...OMG!  They are so beautiful!  I sat and looked them all over for the longest time. I'm in awe.  I just want you to know how much I love each and every item I got from you.
Everything has been packed so well and arrived quickly.

Thank you!

(153)  Dear Richard & team,

My package arrived yesterday.  Everything looks to be in great shape.  I was pleasantly surprised to see so many blooms & buds.  I had purchased from you before, and surely will again. 

Thanks for your timely response & the e-mail letting me know when to expect the fragile cargo!

(154)  Richard,
I wanted to drop you a line letting you know how pleased I am with my recent order. The shells arrived today and they are all in perfect condition. They are more beautiful than I could have thought, and large enough to be useful. I appreciate your efforts in sending me large shells, which are so hard to come by. Your prices are very reasonable and the shipping was fast.  I now have a new go-to store for all my seashell needs. Thanks for running such a wonderful store!
Amanda - L.  MI

Hey Richard,
 I just got my shells today and they are wonderful. I thought I would show you what I did with them. I will attach a pic. I turned my fireplace into a Florida scene to remind me of when I lived there. Thank you for your service!

I just wanted to say how much I loved the 2 Black sea fans I purchased. They were even better in person than on the website!

I’m very happy with my purchase, and the delivery time.

Thank you,

D. H.


Dear Duane,
The shipment arrived today and is already packed in my suitcase.  All shells were in great condition and carefully packed in bubble tape.  I am very satisfied with the merchandise.
Thank you to you and your staff for excellent customer care!
Hello Richard,
Thank you so much!   The link that you provided led me to a seashell company in the Philippines.  They had one of the Zebra mussel shells for sale.  I have placed an order for it.  If you run across more of them, keep me in mind.  I would like to get a few more, if I can find them.  I had to place a minimum order of $40 to order from that company however.  But, that's OK, I found another rare, neat shell.
However, whenever I shop for shells in the future, I will always come to Deltona Seashells first.  I will also provide word-of-mouth advertisement for you here in my area.
I really appreciate you for taking the time to research this for me.  I never would have found it without your help!
Whenever I am teaching about a particular subject, it is much more meaningful to kids if I can show them something, rather than just talking about it.  You have helped to making the learning experience for my kids a little richer.  I am most grateful for that.
Thanks again for your kindness!  Have a blessed day!
- Larry
