Pop Up Shop Recap and Gift Guide

jarring up honey

Yesterday's pop up shop was a success. The rain kept me from having the bees clean up frames and getting to share that spectacle with friends and no one got to appreciate all my husband's hard work on setting up the outdoor space and making it gorgeous. But otherwise it was a great day. Here's a run down of what I was offering.

The things available will be changing seasonally so if you see something you want grab it while it's still here! I'm already working on spring and summer goodies. 

The Honey Spice Body Butter is mango butter based and scented with blood orange and sage. You don't know whether to rub it on your skin or eat it. It was a hit.

The Zen Balm is made with lemon grass (grown on site) and green tea infused olive oil.

 The Kitchen Sink Hand Scrub with sea and Epsom salts got its name from having everything in it but the kitchen sink. Bits of calendula and lavender make it beautiful and using it at after cleaning the kitchen would be a great end of the day ritual. Scented with rosemary and sage (grown on site).

 Plus who wouldn't want to get this beautiful stuff as a gift?

The Fireside hand cream and lip balm are scented with five essential oils with a base of coconut oil and cocoa butter. The fragrance is your favorite cozy sweater, a bonfire, and a cup of spiced hot cider all rolled into one.

Did you know studies show the smell of rosemary increases your memory?  Study Hall is scented with rosemary and grapefruit for a memorable uplifting vibe. There's a matching lip balm to go with it.

I love making these tiny little soaps made with goats milk and honey for gifts! It's really simple and I'll be posting the recipe sometime in the future if you want to try it at home.

I bag them in sets of 3 and sell them for five dollars.

 I also have these large square soap bars available. They are made with calendula infused olive oil.

Your Pen & Hive purchase always includes the gift wrapping!  Who wants to mark shopping for the gift off the list and then think --Oh yeah I need to make another stop for a gift bag and tissue? No one that's who. Your wrapping includes hand stamped tissue paper and a hand made gift tag. Did I mention I am kind of obsessed with bees?

I want buying a Pen & Hive handcrafted item to be an event and a gift even if especially if you are buying it for yourself. You'll never have to worry about showing up to a party or shower with a gift that has been duplicated by someone else.

Prices for these products run from five to twelve dollars. If you are interested you can email me at or shoot me a Facebook message on my page. Please note that supplies are limited. 

There is an online shop coming next year and a lot of other ideas in the pipeline. Stay tuned Pen & Hive family!
