The Story Behind

Did you know a horseshoe crab is not a crab, but more closely related to spiders? These bottom-dwelling coastal creatures have a fascinating anatomy with four eyes, twelve legs and a tiny set of pinchers. Horseshoe crabs bury themselves in mud and sand to feast on clams, worms and other small creatures.

Gorgeous

The detail and beauty of this ornament is more than I could’ve hoped for. I live by the ocean and saw a horseshoe crab one day in the water. This is a beautiful commemoration of that experience.

Great ornament

This unusual ornament has great detail both on the top and the underside. If you’ve ever been fascinated by them at the Jersey shore or Delaware Bay this is a great ornament for you. Technically they are not a crab but are related to spiders. Their blood is harvested for a critical component for making vaccines. They are an ancient species and have a very interesting story. It’s one of my favorite ornaments.

The Christmas Gift Conundrum: What to Give Instead of Gift Cards

Gift cards aren’t always the answer when it comes to gift giving. They are an easy, convenient option, but they aren’t very personal and many go wasted. Ornaments, specifically Old World Christmas ornaments always make great gifts (and not just at Christmas!), and we recommend shopping early for the best selection.
