When 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 2013, with more arriving by Mother’s Day. The dresses have since been featured in an A&D video and in a double-page fashion spread of both the summer 2013 and summer 2014 editions of YRK Magazine, on the runway for the 2013 York City Boutique Week fashion show, and a delightful spotlight in SmartMagazinePA in May 2014.

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.
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.
