Here's what decorating with wire baskets looks like when done coastal style, displaying seashells, driftwood and glass floats.
How fabulous does this vintage wire basket look with driftwood sticks in it! This really makes me want to grow my driftwood collection, and go on a treasure hunt for a cool old rustic wire basket. I found this basket at Anything Goes Here. I hear that you can find them for very little cash! Or if you prefer to treasure hunt from the comfort of your home, look for Wire Baskets on Ebay!
For clamming (style) wire baskets, head over to Caron's Beach House (sold in sets) and Ocean Offerings (as single baskets)!

This lovely, seen in one of Jane Coslick's Cottages, holds a collection of big chunky seashells. Obviously your sea treasures have to be a certain size, so they don't slip out of the openings.
The rustic look of old wire baskets is so perfect for sea treasures that have been tumbled by the sea for years, and they bring a bit of shabby chic to the decor. Original source no longer available.
A Wire Basket filled with gifts from the sea washed up along the shores of Sanibel Island, Caye Caulker (Belize), and Anna Maria Island. Wire baskets come in all kinds of styles and different sizes. And this one is large enough to sit on the floor. Love it!
