Buzz from The Bean Hive

Our 2nd Birthday!

Our 2nd Birthday!

September 1st 2018 -  After months of working our socks off as 'Team Bean' the 5 main traders of The Bean Hive opened your favourite pink shop! What a day - we were all  overwhelmed how busy it was and with the fantastic reviews. Our local town of Kettering were really supportive of an independent on the High Street, and continue to be so. Fast forward 2 years later after dealing with break ins, floods and recently Covid as just a few hindrances the shop goes from strength to strength! Not only locals continuing to support us but customers travelling...

BIG Pink Sale Now On!

Our Big Pink Sale is now online so please check out the bargains under the gifts section.

Website Launch This Friday!

The Covid pandemic has thrown us all a giant curve ball this year. Many small businesses won't survive and the rest of us are having to adapt to continue.

The Bean Hive is a old, narrow and higgledy- piggledly building, not well suited to social distancing. For this reason we are not reopening as a conventional shop quite yet.   On Friday 12th...

The Quirkiest Shop In Town...

The Quirkiest Shop In Town...

Well that was an exhausting week. We are now a week from launching our rather ambitious website and Team Bean have certainly worked some ridiculous hours over the last few days.  I have recruited the family to be our superb editing team and am happy to say we are nearly there. Incidentally I have noticed that a few well known companies could really do with some better editors on their sites.  Our beautiful shop has been transformed into a warehouse to ease packing and parcelling but one day it will return to its former glory.   We love a delivery...

9 weeks later.....

9 weeks later.....

Behind the scene Team Bean are working really hard on building our website and preparing the shop ready for our phased reopening.   If you have passed our little pink shop this week,  you will notice it is looking loved again.  We have never been happier to see our window cleaner, 9 weeks dirt is not a good look.   Danielle has been painting everything in sight including our rather sexy new card wall and our new shop mascot.  Lizzy and I have been cleaning and titivating the front shop between counting thousands and thousands of products.    We are hoping...
