Sanibel’s 74th Annual Shell Fair & Show

For those of you lucky to be here now, the Shell Fair & Show is going on through tomorrow.  It takes place at The Sanibel Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way (across from our office).  Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m.  today and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday.  This show continues to draw shell enthusiasts from around the world.  We hope to see some walk-ins from it too. 

Bailey Family Homestead

SCCF’s “Honoring the Past – Protecting the Future” $5.3 million campaign to acquire the 28.3-acre homestead is approaching the $3 million mark.  The purchase option has a June 24, 2011 deadline.

IrishFest Coming Soon 

The Bailey’s Center Merchants’ Association will host IrishFest on Thurs, March 17, from 4 p.m.-7 p.m.  Sanibel residents and guests are invited to celebrate the Irish national holiday with Irish food and drink, music, and dancing.  The BIG ARTS Chorus will be performing too. Plan to come hear SanibelSusan sing!

Inventory Lists

With many recent price reductions and plenty of island sales activity, if you are interested in seeing what is for sale and, for comparison, recent sales, send SanibelSusan a quick e-mail at and she will e-mail you back any or all of the following inventory lists: Sanibel condos, Sanibel homes, Sanibel lots, and Captiva properties.  Prices are down, but it being “high season”, the island is busy and property is moving again. Just eight more weeks of high season remain, but there still are plenty of good deals to be had.
