sea shells she sells to buy the seashore.

can i pay in sea shells?

kristy’s purse of riches

kristy has been saving up her sea shells.

though i’m not sure what she’s saving for, and i am personally more of a catch and release shell hunter, i respect that she recognizes a good investment when she seas one.

today, instead of donating my days treasure back to the sandbanks, i am investing them in kristy, her appreciation for nature’s treasures, and a returm to simpler times.

“Shells were once the going medium of currency and exchange on most of the earth’s continents.  evidences in some form or another span the globe… throughout Africa, America, Asia, (the Chinese symbol for money takes its form from the cowry shell!) and Australia.”
