morsels mediumNew to Monmouth Street in Red Bank, Candy’s Cottage carries a selection of beach-themed, etched glassware.

Store owner – and seashell artisan – Candy Galekovic will personalize any of the elegant wine glasses with an array of seashells, which she glues to the base.

“A lot of people come in and purchase the champagne flutes for the bride and groom as toasting glasses,” she said, adding that the store also now offers gift registry on its website.

The glasses cost $15 apiece and come in a variety of sizes. Sets are available in fun seaside themes such as seahorses, seashells and fish motifs. A seashell-embellished glass will set you back $25.
