With a purchase from The Bee, you show your support of  local makers. You demonstrate your appreciation of handmade, your belief in recycling and reusing materials to decrease waste, and the uniqueness of creatively repurposed goods.

Bee producers create a variety of goods that are just right for you and your home, available in person in our studio at 24 N. Beaver Street in downtown York, Pa.  We also carry an assortment of sewing-related goods.

Open Wed evenings from 6:30 to 8:30, Thursday, Friday, and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Our refashioned clothing and accessory lines contain classic shapes and styles with  playful hints of the unexpected shining through to make them uniquely yours.  A selection of items for women and our adorable dresses for little girls.  Accessories range from scarves and cowls, jewelry, purses and totes, to headbands, neckties (for women and men), leg warmers, wrist cuffs, hats, and more.


We’ve got an array of cozy soft goods like heirloom-trending baby quilts, pillows, table runners, aprons, our line of yoga mat bags, as well as sturdier thrifted items like vintage sewing machines, sewing machine baskets, and more.


Want something extra special to mark a passage of time, celebrate an occasion, or honor the memory of a loved one? Consider a teddy bear made from your child’s clothing they’ve outgrown. A pillow from dad or grandpa’s shirts. Turn tee shirts from high school days into a dorm room throw. Clothing from Mama & Daddy into a new baby quilt.  Have ideas of your own; let us know.


Items in our retail shops which are created by our collective go directly to the women who make them,  with a small percentage coming back to support Bee operations.
