Bee & Thistle

Welcome to Bee and Thistle!

Hello and a 'Happy Holidays' to all,

Just wanted to remind you of a couple of upcoming key events in the Village, including our new hours beginning November 28. Our third window is getting ready to join the others to give us 3 exciting windows providing previews of what is waiting for you inside.

We will be open 7 days a week until Christmas for your convenience so...Come see us soon!!

The Bee & Thistle, in its 41st year, continues to be Maplewood’s first and last choice for gifts. Your neighbors will tell you that over our many years of serving Maplewood and surrounding towns we have proven to be quite adept at helping customers find that unique gift, at a great price, and one that will really impress the recipient. Once the selection is made, the gift is attractively gift wrapped at no charge.

Favorites at The Bee & Thistle include tea or wine-related items, frames, and antique china and stemware. Visit our Gift Selections page to see the breadth of our selections.

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

Maplewood Ornaments Made in the USA

These ceramic but lightweight ornaments are hand made in New Hampshire!! You have your choice of either holly or a maple leaf on the reverse side. There are other Maplewood ornaments which come to us from Rhode Island.

Don't forget this EXCLUSIVE Ornament!

This has been a hit! One shopper purchased 3 of them with his home address to send to his grown 'kids' who have moved far from Maplewood to remind them from whence they came. Remember, it is two lines of custom text done by John while you wait!
