THE BEE HIVE is our museum store named after a shop that was located at 139 East Main Street, c.1885. We have a variety of local artists in multiple mediums selling baskets, greeting cards, jewelry, pottery, original watercolors and more.
Handmade baskets by Peggy Herendeen. Peggy's first basket was a melon basket that she made in the late 1980s. Today she averages 100 creations a year. You can often find her at local area craft shows and festivals. Special orders are welcome - just give her a call 260.982.6619 and tell her we sent you!
Templar Farms provides locally sourced honey and honey products from right here in Northeast Indiana. You will find a variety of honeys from buckwheat, wildflower, clover and more. Each has a unique flavor profile and coloring.
For the true honey connoisseur, there is whole honeycomb! Beeswax candles and bricks of beeswax that have a multitude of uses are also available.
My favorite medium is currently pen and ink, but liquid graphite is coming pretty close. I do watercolor, acrylic, pastels, and some scratch board too or anything that looks like an art medium and fun! In 2015 I opened the Art Giraffe studio after I retired from teaching. I love teaching and sharing my passion for art.
Cast leaves created by Diana Iden. Believe it or not - these are actually made from concrete. Weatherproofed for indoor or outdoor use. They look beautiful in your garden or as an accent in a pot. They also look fantastic on a mantel or as a centerpiece!
