Bee & Thistle

Welcome to Bee and Thistle!

Special Holiday Hours - Open EVERY DAY after Thanksgiving!

Monday - Saturday: 10 am - 5:30-ish
Sunday: 12:00 - 4:30
Thursdays: open until 7
As we move into our 43rd year of serving Maplewood Village, Eileen and I are happy to again create Maplewood's "go-to" shop for holiday decor. We have also started seeing American Express' "Shop Small" promotions. It is great advice to shoppers who do not relish the mall mobs, and, what's more, you will not be disappointed at the Bee & Thistle. Don't forget the free gift wrap!

Many of you have seen the changes in the shop as we move past Halloween and into Thanksgiving and Christmas. All of the front windows and a lot of the interior displays will soon be 'all' Christmas, and we have loads of wonderful things for you to choose from.

The fourth quarter has always been a hit with us and with our clientele because of all of the 'goodies' we display, so sit back and 'enjoy the show'.

The variety of gift items at the Bee & Thistle is truly amazing, and for an appreciation of the gifts available, please visit the Gift Selections page. I believe you will agree with our regular customers that that with a little planning, you can make your holiday shopping experience more enjoyable. Remember, shop local and shop small.

The Bee & Thistle also offers a chair repair service including both gluing and repair.

Come see us!

Featured Product: The Perfect Ornament

Yes, the custom ornament is now available. You select the two lines of text, and John will print them on your ornament. One customer last year ordered one for each of the 'kids' who had moved away just to remind them of their roots.

    This is one of the turkey platters we have to show you. Other items pictured are salt/pepper shakers, dangling turkeys, sitting turkeys, snack dishes, and a very popular item, the message flatware. Some of the spoon messages are: "Let the stuffing begin", "Veg Out", "Oh My Gravy". The pie server says, "I'm Just Here for Dessert". One of the forks says, "Talk turkey to me".
