Hundreds showed up to shell out at the inaugural Buffalo Beach Glass and Coastal Arts Festival.

The two-day extravaganza has more than 80 artists displaying their craft.

From Beach glass to drift wood, the festival is filled with unique pieces.

Guests can attend lectures and enter the "Best Beach Glass" contest.

The festival helps the artists make a personal connection with customers.

"It's awesome because the best thing I find, even though I sell online, is that when they pick it up or look at it, or I can encourage them to put it on it makes all the difference in the world,” said , Sea Goddess Treasures Owner Francine Mueller.

The festival is scheduled to continue on Sunday.
