Beehive Co-Op

Check out Bee Hive Co-Op for a great selection of uniquely talented designers with a diverse product grouping. You can shop Bee Hive Co-Op online, as well as their currently operating franchises. Bee Hive Co-Op not only supports independent designers, but they also have a unique structure in terms of their stores- they are trying to create a network of independently owned franchises so that each brick and mortar shop carries a different selection of wares by independent designers in that area. 
I think this is a great idea, when I had my own shop, customers were acutely aware when I brought in products made by local artisans, they loved to support the local design community and could do that by putting their dollars into the pockets of local talent.

I love this beautiful, one of a kind ceramic dish. Featuring a simply designed black and white bird- this dish reminds me of a drawing drawn on a blackboard....

Amazing, Meyer Lemon Bowl, by Atlanta based ceramicist Cara Gilbert. The color is perfect and I love the juxtaposition of the raised textured dots on the outside of the bowl next to the glossy yellowy-green on the interior of the bowl!  

So cute! Simply made and adorable, I love these little notecards that remind us to Love Life!
