                Good things truly do come in small packages—especially at the beach! The September/October issue of Beachcombing Magazine has stories about historical beads found along the River Thames, a peek inside some cozy British beach huts, and tiny beach finds from readers. We have stories from beachcombers around the world, including the Great Lakes, Japan, Washington, Alaska, and Australia. There's a re-cap of the Virtual Beachcombing Festival and if you can't make it to the beach, we have a fun barn wood and sea glass shelf you can craft with beach finds in your collection.
