ABOUT


  • Me taken this year by my good friend Joey Ivansco.

    I opened Beehive Co-op in 2004. The idea was born out of a need to take my burgeoning handmade handbag business to the next level. Up against a wall, burnt out on local festivals and unable to meet the margins for wholesale, I thought that there must be an alternative concept for fledgling entrepreneurs who are serious about building a business. Inspired by the antique dealer model, I conceived of Beehive as a place where designers can sell their merchandise directly to the customer in a supportive, collaborative environment that provides resources and support as they navigate the highs and lows of building a design/craft business. It’s been a long time since I’ve sewed (I miss it) but I’m constantly motivated to provide bigger and better opportunities for all the designers associated with Beehive Co-op!


    One of my first bee handbags (a favorite) made about 5 years ago.


    This was Beehive before the Co-op!

Hi Petra, welcome to New York!
I say that as a well established brooklynite (3 months) :)
I'm excited that you're here. I'd love to see you if you have the time. I'm working at a non-profit and sewing dresses out of sweaters in my free time.
Well, I'm glad you made the move and I'm excited that you plan to open a Beehive.
Best wishes,
Susan
