The Shell House is truly impressive. In viewing, I felt like it was a testament to everything tacky and kitschy in American collectibles.


 With the background story told in a short movie, it explained the couples' brilliant love and personalities, the story behind the collection, and how it gained its place in the treasures of New Zealand.
