The {Fall} Hive was "BuZZ-ing"


  Was cleaning out photos on my iphone today & came across these & wanted to share them.  They made me smile when I remember a fantastic Hive, happy customers & friends. 

I had Miss Mace sneak outside before the doors opened to get this shot.  This is the moment that my heart starts pounding & all the hard work & prep pays off.  Thanks for everyone who loves coming up so much that they arrive 30 minutes early to stand in line.  
I really appreciate it! 

All that line up makes for a busy, bustling Hive once I open the doors.  Love feeling the energy & excitement that fills my home when everyone comes in.  
-Love that in this pic you can see the clock above the fireplace- 6:02 & everyone is excited to be in The Hive- 

I spy.... some of my favorite friends & clients in these pictures.  Thank you all for coming! 

I always wish I had more pictures but at least I get a few shots in before the chaos begins.  
{Don't worry.... we have a few ideas up our sleeves to make The {Holiday} Hive checkout move more quickly & smoothly} 
There is always a little traffic jam all at once when all these happy customers are ready to check out with their armfuls of goods. 

I need to remember to take pictures on Friday & Saturday too when it is less crowded & crazy.  Please don't worry that if you don't get here on Opening Night that nothing is left.  There is always LoTS of things that get overlooked the first night & the vendors bring in new goods each day.  Friday was actually the busiest day it's ever been- so a BiG thank you!  That was so exciting to see.  The word is getting out about The Hive I think.  A truly one of a kind, unique charming boutique.  Fun seeing so many new faces this time around & meeting you all. 

-Grateful to have this friend {& fabulous vendor, Leila Bird}  at The Hive this time around.  Well.... she always comes & supports The Hive weather she's a vendor or not.  Glad we got a pic taken before the doors opened- 

Already starting to think about the upcoming {Holiday} Hive & I'm asking a question over on the H&H FaceBook page that I need your help with. 
Calling all SWeeT TooTHS!!
Hop over to the FB page & help me out, please.  
I need your input- thanks! 

- Can't believe 30 lbs. of this stuff was gone by the middle of the 2nd day.  I think there are alot of people out there who LoVE chocolate & carmel.  Great combo!- 

Have a fabulous day.
