Do you appreciate the choice of buying items made from recycled materials? Do you like knowing your purchase is hand made and that a portion of every sale supports local charities?

Proceeds from the sale of items created by our members go directly to the women who make them,  with a small percentage coming back to support operation of our collective, and another percentage donated to local community benefit organizations (chosen by our participants).


Visit our Etsy store to shop from a selection of goods ranging from jewelry, clothing, home decor and heirloom-trending items (like baby quilts).  [This is a slowly-but-surely effort right now; please check back in pickings are slim at the moment.]


COMING SPRING 2014 – The Bee is thrilled to announce that we will have a retail presence in York City, opening May 1. Watch for details about location, hours, etc. to be announced in March.  Info will also be promoted at our stand at Go Green in the City in April. And . . .


With such a great selection of teas at Cherie Anne, 48 W. Philadelphia Street, York, you’ll find lots of samples to pack into your Bee-made “tea wallet.” A variety of delightful fabrics make these handy carriers of favorite teas perfect for you and as gifts for the tea lovers in your life.

Also at Cherie Anne are sweet little pouches we crafted to hold the healing stones available for purchase at the shop.


yoga mat bagsOur merchant partner, Lotus Moon Yoga Studio, has a new location – and our yoga mat bags made the move with them. Discover the array of beautiful, practical bags at 36 N. Beaver Street, York.


dresses at A&DWhen Arthur & Daughters shop owner, Hilary, requested we consider an exclusive line of little girls dresses for her store at 49 N. Beaver Street in York, we were delighted to get to the design board and then to the sewing machines. Our first collection premiered with a half dozen cheerful dresses – made by refashioning men’s shirts – in time for the store’s ribbon cutting in March; more arrived by Mother’s Day.  The dresses have since been featured in an A&D video and in a double-page style spread of the summer 2013 edition of YRK Magazine.  The Celebrations Collection is now in the store, featuring on-trend plaids in three styles; perfect for parties or playtime.


With the addition of more bees to the hive, we will have an increasing variety of items available.  As our product is available in the shops of more local merchants, we will list those here, too.  (Local businesses interested in carrying items made by our collective or discussing potential partnerships are encouraged to contact us.)

You can see some of the items hive members have been working on by clicking on The Bee Pix (on our Flickr page) or the gallery on the home page.  We’ve also begun to post items to our Etsy shop FromtheBee.
