Bee & Thistle

Welcome to Bee and Thistle!

Thanks to everyone for helping make our holiday season successful. We enjoyed seeing our steady customers, but we were happy to see a lot of new faces too. We are now entering our 42nd year in Maplewood Village, and it is really gratifying to see our town supporting its Village so well.

It is trade show season, and new arrivals are already hitting the store. For instance, we just displayed a bumper crop of Irish items inspired by the ‘Old Sod’. The Bee & Thistle 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, one that will really impress the recipient, and at a great price. Once the selection is made, the gift is attractively gift wrapped at no charge.

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. We just placed orders for our Spring collection, so keep an eye on the windows for a hint at their arrival. 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!
