Bee & Thistle

Welcome to Bee and Thistle!

Last month, we were writing to you in a snowstorm, and here we are awaiting another one. A surefire remedy for our mutual cabin fever is a trip to the Bee & Thistle for a smile and great gift wrap. Have faith...Spring is really around the corner. Proof? Well the bunnies have arrived, in force. They are in the window and all over the store along with lots of things for the kids, centerpieces, and hostess gifts for the Easter celebration. Maybe even a surprise for the well-behaved little ones...

Thanks to those of you who are enjoying them, the flutter shawls are a hit, and we have just received our second shipment of them. Create your own look. Great for travel, an evening out, and how about that cruise?

Fairy gardens are on display. More princesses, gnomes, and accessories to boot. We even have a fairy farm and princess tea party.

Favorites at The Bee & Thistle continue to be tea or wine-related items, frames, and antique china and stemware. The new favorite is our handbag collection. Be sure to visit our Gift Selections page to see the breadth of our selections.

The Bee & Thistle also offers a chair repair service including both gluing and repair, as well as caning, rush and splint seats. Come see us!

    Window #2: Paris
    We have had a lot of interest in Paris in recent months. So, responding to our customers, voila! There is a real variety of items in this window. Items range from great platters and tidbit plates, to dessert plates to a fun set of salt and peppers. There is even a letter opener, a card case and a pill box. To be truly 'French', we also have a great variety of wine items and cheese boards.
