Greetings everyone! If you thought the big news was going to slow down after our new bottling machine got here, you were mistaken!
Our biggest news since the new bottling machine (which is running like a dream; we can’t wait to get the capper working with it!) is the opening of our new store in Charleston, South Carolina! We landed prime real estate on King Street, painted the walls, bought flowers, threw some honey and body care on the shelves, and invited everyone in to taste some honey. We opened on a beautiful, spring-like weekend and did well. We are so proud of Sam, our retail manager, and our newest Savannah Bee employees! We are looking forward to our grand opening on March 10 and meeting more of the fine people in the city of Charleston.
We also found ourselves in the pages of Marie Claire and Imbibe Magazine for the month of March. Our spectacular Mint Julep Beeswax Lip Balm can be found in Marie Claire on page 124. In honor of this feature, our Mint Julep lip balms are buy 3, get 1 free! The promo code for this can be found on the home page of our website. Our Tupelo Honey is one of Imbibe’s favorite things and can be found on page 18!
We’ve been getting our bee garden ready for the upcoming season! Cleaning out old hives, checking on the queens, sprucing up the grounds. This year, we are thinking about breeding queen bees! We will be documenting the whole thing, so be on the lookout for that.
Honeycomb season is getting nearer and could not be coming at a better time. Our Broughton Street store and honeycomb will be featured in the pages of Southern Living in April! You’ll be hearing much more about honeycomb the further we move through the season.
