Linda really does! She is the co-owner of Persnickety Palm, in Leesburg, VA. We had a very interesting conversation recently about wholesale seashells and those very large clam shells that are often seen only in luxury Caribbean resorts.
I told her about my brief encounter with Lord Glenconner 16 years ago when visiting the island of St. Lucia. He had several large shells on his property at that time, which was adjacent to the Jalousie Hilton Resort and Spa. The above photo from my 1998 visit features his bungalows and pet. Aren't the dangling orchids amazing?! Do you see the bananas on the left? Could be Eden :).
St. Lucia was also full of palm trees which leads me back to Linda's store. Click on her web site link below or make a visit in person to her shop Persnickety Palm! She sells beautiful jewelry, clothing, art and even keepsake shell boxes.
