The store is aptly named as there are many Friends from the Sea – whale, seahorse, dolphin and sea turtle earrings and necklaces. And their friends come in many sizes and shapes.
At Whales & Friends, you will find wonderful stuffed animals – geese, bears, cats, dogs, wild animals and such. Their beloved shopkeeper loves all types of animals and reflects that also in her jewelry creations.
