We’re Bumblebee at the Hive, a beautiful shop offering wonderful home and giftware for every home and occasion.
We’ve hand-picked products to create a shop that not only gives our customers fantastic inspiration and items to dress their home, but also a unique shopping experience.
We aspire to help each and every customer find the perfect gift, home décor, jewellery and clothing from our fantastic range, whilst feeling relaxed and at home.
We opened our doors in 2002, and over the years we’ve developed wonderful relationships with our suppliers, and stock brilliant items from companies such as Susie Watson, Chic Antique, Dutch Imports, East of India and Maileg but to name a few. We also love to support our local crafters and makers such as Agnes and Cat.
Our Shop is on a little street in the town of Barrow-in-Furness, on the beautiful Furness Peninsula and just a short drive from the Lake District.
Bumblebee was a long time ambition of owner Jackie who, with lots of support from friends and family, created a small shop packed to the rafters with amazing and inspiring homewares. Over the last 18 years we’ve developed an eye and reputation for high quality items and a warm and friendly atmosphere, where customers feel at home.
The business has grown from strength to strength, including a move to new premises in 2012, a rebrand in 2020 with amazing local artist Hannah Willetts and the opening of a café in 2021 – you can read our full story and history of Bumblebee here.
So why not pop by to see us? We’re open Monday to Saturday 10am-5pm and have measures in place to be 100% Covid Safe.
Our stock is continuously refreshed and growing! We have restored furniture, stylish homeware, vintage décor, frames, bunting, lanterns, candles, cards, and other unique gifts for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, baby celebrations and other special events.
We pride ourselves in sourcing products that support local and unique crafters, you can read some of their stories here.
