Things a Drift has been a Long Beach Island staple for over 40 years. This is not your ordinary beach town shell shop. We are home to interior design ideas, local artwork, sea glass, hermit crabs, a huge selection of rare shells and sea life, and plenty of unique gift ideas you won’t find anywhere else on LBI. Things A Drift seeks to break away from traditional shell shops and beach stores by providing education and history on local wildlife as well as being a strong part of the community.
