I got my shell!!!!!!!!!!!!
I found this excellent store on Etsy called Spirit of the Camino. All proceeds go to funding the owner’s time as a hospitalera comforting pilgrims along the way. I wanted to give a big shout out to the store for several reasons.
First, the order arrived WAY before expected! I was literally shocked when I got the package.
Second, the shell was PERFECT. It was exactly what I hoped for. Not only was it well-made, it was well-packaged. But for a few seconds, I didn’t think it was . . .
Third, I nearly panicked when I heard rattling in the package. The shell wasn’t broken though – there was a small gift included! I won’t spoil the surprise, but it’s something I had planned on getting as a gift for others myself! nothing like a little Camino bling.
Finally, the owner, Gayle, took the time to write a thoughtful, encouraging note on the receipt.
So if you are looking to get your Camino shell before arriving in Spain, I highly recommend Spirit of the Camino.
