4. Elaborate keepsakes known as ‘sailor’s valentines’, originally thought to be a shipboard craft, were actually made in Barbados and sold as souvenirs to homeward bound sailors. Today, anyone can make a sailor’s valentine by collecting ordinary beach shells and gluing them in fancy patterns onto a backing. Come to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic where they will supply the shells and materials needed to create your special sailor’s valentine, or you are welcome to bring your own!
