Hi, I'm Jessica! I'm a lover of all things French Country. I refer to my style as "rustic elegance", incorporating a mix of old & new with French antiques, soft neutral fabrics & linens, chippy furniture pieces, and crystal chandeliers with pops of gold. I started L'Abeille from my home in 2011, finally opening my dream store front in Ghent in 2013. I ran the store for 5 years until making the hard decision of closing it down due to personal health concerns. I missed meeting new faces, making great friends, and developing loyal customers, but I knew I had to take care of myself first. Thankfully a new opportunity presented itself in October 2019 and I moved into a vendor space at The Industrial Cottage. It has been a wonderful way for me to continue doing what I love, without the responsibilities of owning & managing my own storefront. L'Abeille means so much to me, as it brings a calming peace & comfort to my world. And my hope is that is will inspire the same for you.
Hi, I'm Sam! I grew up near Portland, OR , just over the border in WA. Two years ago, we moved to VA and to keep myself busy while being unemployed, I started thrifting. The sheer abundance of amazing vintage treasures blew my mind. Nostalgia and coffee are basically what my body runs on and I could very easily feed my hunger for all things old and lovely in this area by rescuing these treasures and bringing them back to life. My style is a marriage of Mid Century Modern mixed with a boho vibe and cozy cottage touches sprinkled about. I try to honor the workmanship that previously went into the pieces by listening to each one as they let me know what they want to become.
Coffee Bar Hours:
Saturday & Sunday: 11am-3pm
Bear House Coffee Roasters is a mobile coffee shop based out of the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Our mission is to bring the local community together through art, music, and coffee.
We custom roast all of our beans using a roaster specifically designed for small batches. This ensures each cup of coffee is rich in flavor and freshly roasted to perfection, every time.
Always on the hunt for the finest cup of coffee, Stephen Davis, owner, travels far and wide sampling different coffees, sharing his favorite Bear House roasts, and picking up tricks of the trade along the way. Movement is just part of Stephen's style, so a mobile coffee shop fits him naturally.
