Fun Coastal Findings (by Sarah & Anna)

Last week our family was away on vacation to the Oregon Coast. Knowing that ocean shores collects some of the best shopping, we made sure to capture photos of unique coastal merchandise. Our favorite shopping spot was Cannon Beach, known for its rock formation Haystack Rock and its treasure-trove of shops and galleries.

These glasses against the pink wall are very intriguing at Josephine’s, a pretty gift shop in Cannon Beach.

You must visit their shop in the Cannon Beach Mall if you are in the area. Sesame and Lilies has everything from found items like sea glass, bottles, and fisherman’s net floats to new decorator rugs, pillows, and local artwork.
