When you visit the Queen Bee studio shop, you'll see that it is much more than a typical boutique.
Immediately behind the shop, visible to visitors, is our work space, where you’ll see our production & process in action. On any given day you'll see us cutting, snapping, sewing, printing, and working on any variety of things that keep this little business humming. We intentionally created the space to make our process transparent - to foster a connection between those of us making the goods, to you - our visitors and customers.
While you’re in the neighborhood, take time to visit some of our neighbors too - we’ve got everything from great coffee, wine and beer, to delicious food, vintage clothing, gifts & cards. We'd love to see you soon!
At the front of the building, in the retail space, you'll find the biggest selection of our house-lines: Queen Bee, Chickpea, and Rebecca Pearcy Textiles. In addition to everything you see on our website, you'll also find one-of-a-kinds, prototype designs, and special items that for one reason or another, didn't make it onto our website. You'll also find our "seconds" - items that are slightly flawed and therefore marked down.
In addition to our own goods, you'll discover a carefully curated selection of locally & regionally crafted jewelry, clothing, accessories, paper goods and home goods. These items are made by our friends, neighbors, and like-minded artisans that resonate with the Queen Bee aesthetic & lifestyle.
