On Saturday, Aug. 23, the Beehive kicks off its bi-annual warehouse sale which features 40 to 90 percent off handmade good from more than 60 local designers.
The sale runs through Sunday, Aug. 30 but while vendors will restock throughout the week, pros like to come early to hunt for the best items. Doors will open early at 9 a.m. on Saturday and close at 7 p.m.
In addition, on Saturday, while supplies last, the earliest guests will enjoy complimentary yummy treats including artisanal ice teas from Just Add Honey and Revolution Donuts to sample while shopping. During the rest of the sale week, the store will operate under regular hours: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m., Mon. – Sat. and 12 – 5 p.m. on Sunday.
This is a big event, so plan to arrive early. Beehive has added additional checkout stations to reduce lines and to save time, there will be no gift wrapping. You cannot use individual coupons during the sale and all sales are final.
Once again, there will be items for sale starting as low as $1. DIY’ers and crafters can load up on supplies including fabrics, items for jewelry making and knitting supplies at rock-bottom prices.
