It makes us happy when our Portland brands celebrate anniversaries; the first year may symbolize having surmounted a huge struggle to launch, while 5 years shows that they've succeeded in collecting a loyal customer base. This month Queen Bee celebrates 18 YEARS! I would say that this brand has achieved all the above and has become a household brand in Portland. We all know Queen Bee established themselves many years ago as a source for accessories that express creative aesthetic appeal as well as utilitarian long lasting quality. We've seen many Portlanders donning their Queen Bee bags, busting out their wallets at the register, and even slinging their backpacks on the trails in the Gorge, and it makes us smile that so many people adore such a solid brand here in sunny, cloudy, rainy, hailstorm-in-June Oregon.
Obviously, Queen Bee is having a party/sale to celebrate. A 24-hour flash sale is happening on June 28th in store (where party time refreshments will be served) and online. Queen Bee house line merchandise (Queen Bee, Chick Pea, and Rebecca Pearcy Textiles) will be 25% off its marked price, along with additional discounts on other shop items. While shopping and celebrating, you're encouraged to enter the raffle, which will have 18 prizes total, including: a custom Truckette purse design session with Queen Bee owner/designer Rebecca Pearcy, gift certificates from Ink & Peat, Hopworks, Barre3, Black Wagon, Screaming Sky Gallery and many others! (Winners will be notified on Monday, June 30th).
“Queen Bee customers are so loyal, it’s our pleasure to thank them with a celebration of the connection between makers and buyers we’ve cultivated over the last 18 years,” says Queen Bee designer/owner Rebecca Pearcy.
