Looking for shell shops

Post by IsolatedShadow » Tue Oct 08, 2019 5:19 pm

Hello! I'm looking for shops that will sell turbos with around 1 1/8 to maybe 1 1/4 opening size. We still haven't found shells for the new big guys.
New owner to 8 hermits, two of them belong to my aunt (and some of the others we both own). Hermits from smallest to largest: Dwebble, McShelldon, Crustle, Piggy, Sharkie, Lint. Snappy.

oh, thank you! I was checking out naples, but the shells there is kinda.. expensive when they're bigger. and I don't know about you, by my aunt would not want to shell out 50 dollars for 6 shells that are around 1 1/4 openings. I am trying to go a cheap route to make it seem easier on my aunt and them, so i been looking for alternatives for the past week lol. But i do know it is inevitable, i am just trying to prolong the 15 dollar shell purchases. Ken Lipe seems to be perfect! the prices are not that bad, and the shells are absolutely stunning!
