"Eileen has a wonderful talent for display; not surprising since she once managed the boutique at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. John has been restoring furniture for over 30 years, and now focuses primarily on chairs."

  • About us

    Eileen and John Dilley opened The Bee & Thistle as an antique shop in 1973 on Highland Place in Maplewood, NJ. In 1981, we relocated the shop just around the corner on Baker Street, while expanding our antique selection to include new gifts.

    "What I really like about the Bee & Thistle is the personal attention I always receive from the owners. Their experience and intimate knowledge of their merchandise makes my selection of the ‘right’ gift really easy…and they do a wonderful giftwrap!"
