    I do have some that are a half inch and some even smaller and I would have no problem sending them to you if you can pay for shipping.

    Mine are stubborn and will only use turbo shells. I'll try to find all the small ones I have today and take a picture of them for you.

    I found a wide variety of shells at my local dollar store. They are great and only a dollar for a bag! :) They range from tiny ones to fairly big ones. There is turbos as well as others. I suggest you take a look at your dollar store to see what you can find.

    I will. I've tried craft stores but they never turn out to be big enough.

    HermitPaws: Obviously there are many people willing to help you out with shells, but we need more information as to what you're looking for.

    I found some seashells at the Dollar Zone that came in a bag...they were in the craft section. I originally bought them for my preschool class, but noticed a couple of the were right for our crabitat. At least one crab has moved into one. I live in S. TX on the Gulf Coast, so seashells are abundant here. I've been thinking about heading out to one of the souviner shops that sells seashells and see what is out there.
