Message In A Bottle – Bandon Style
Ever dream of being stranded on a desert island and
finding a treasured Message in a Bottle?
This winter, Bandon will be sprinkled with unique, Bandon-themed bottles containing a positive, beach-themed message waiting to be discovered. Each bottle was created by local artist, Kim Bell. Read her story, A Studio with a Sea of Creations.
These bottles are yours to keep and can be brought into participating local businesses to claim a set of mini-lights. Insert the mini-lights into the bottle to create an even more beautiful and unique memory of your trip to Bandon!
