Bibbey’s Shells & Rocks to get Face-lift in Near Future with New Murals

Bibbey’s Shells & Rocks to get Face-lift in Near Future. A new group of young artists along with Ali Alfred will be coming and doing all new murals on the outside of the shop. We will advise when there is a firm date!

Bibby's Shop is an Imperial Beach Landmark! The owner Michael Bibbey and his family have been there about 30 years now. In speaking with Mike he said that they bought the shop in 1985 and said  "We have been having the murals done for about 10 years now".
The building on the corner of Seacoast Drive and Elm Ave, with its shelves, baskets and showcases full of seashells inside and its ocean-themed murals outside, is a local landmark.
A great white shark painted on the front of the building a few years ago sparked some drama when city officials thought it might be misinterpreted as a warning. c/o SD Union Tribune

  • 903 Seacoast Dr
    Imperial Beach, CA 91932
