Announcement    Handcrafted and customizable beach themed signs, chimes, and more!

Made to order production time is generally 5-7 days. This meaning that the item is shipped on or by day 7.

All signs are for indoor use. Each is made using select pine wood—free of VOCs, harmful materials and knots. I use nontoxic acrylic paints and an eco-friendly sealant. Majority of my signs use a stencil for lettering but I do have a few items that are done completely by hand.

All sea shells and sea glass used are found by me. Any shells found with critters inside are returned to the sea. Prior to moving to Pennsylvania, I lived 30 minutes outside of Ocean City, Maryland and have a stockpile of shells and glass to work from. I also visit the beach whenever I get a free moment.


Thanks for visiting!

Peace By The Sea Where I Feel Free...

My name is Allison but everyone knows me as Alli. I used to live about 30 minutes from Ocean City, MD. Surprisingly, there was a good period of time where I disliked the beach, mostly the sand. And thought the beach/coastal theme was boring. That was until I was introduced to a little gem called Sea Glass.

A friend had told me about what sea glass was--broken glass smoothed over from the action of the waves--and that it was a treasure that must be found. Having never found anything more interesting than a few clam shells while at the beach, I blew him off figuring I'd never lay eyes on a piece of my own.

However, that all changed while on a fishing trip. None were biting up on the pier and after a while I got quite bored. There is a beach along where the pier is so I had decided to go for a walk. I had my head down looking at all the little stones on the beach but nothing popped out at me. But then I had into the tiny waves washing ashore and there it was. A soft blue piece of glass just a little smaller than the palm of my hand. I took it ashore to examine it; no sharp edges, smooth, slightly but not fully frosted. My very first piece! I was so excited and oh so hooked.

Welcome to The Bayfront Cottage!

Everything here is handcrafted by me, Alli! Originally from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, my heart will always belong to the sea.

My love for everything beach and nautical started when I found my very first piece of sea glass. Sea glass is special because it is a shard of time. Something made by man long ago that was tossed to the sea and forgotten about only to be found again. The sea transforms this once broken and jagged glass into a gem of sorts, beautifully frosted and smooth.

All my signs are for indoor use. I use select pine wood which is smooth and not knotty. It is also free of harsh chemicals used in other lumber products. Since I like my environment I try to use materials that will not harm it or myself. I use nontoxic acrylic paints and an eco-friendly sealant.

All my chimes are made from shells and genuine sea glass that has all been handpicked. Not one piece is ever machine tumbled or further manipulated. The sea creates its own beauty and anything other is just not equivalent. Shells and sea glass are drilled to be strung. Shells are sealed in the same eco-friendly sealant as my signs to help protect them from the elements and to bring out their colors. Any driftwood used is also hand picked, never bleached.
