You may have heard of us, even shopped at our store, but have you ever wondered how the name of our store came to be?

We chose to become foster parents, something we are passionate about and continue today. We want to make a difference in a child’s life at a time when they need it most. To date, we have shared our home with approx. 43 children, from infants to preschoolers. Our very first placement was a set of 5-month-old twins and their 4-year-old sister.

They certainly kept us extremely busy as little ones do!

    We decided to open a quality children’s clothing store to help parents keep their children in stylish, yet practical and affordable clothing. But we struggled to find a name. We brainstormed and came up with names like Kids Closet, Cute Bees Children’s Clothing, and Grow With Us but we couldn’t settle on anything we really liked. The 6-year-old had always had a love of nature and being outdoors and then one day it came to us. The kids’ last name began with a B and since these kids kept us jumping that made us think of nature’s hardest worker, the honeybee.

    Today Busy bees enables us to continue being there for children and their families in yet another way, providing quality clothing at an affordable price while making it easier for families to cloth their children. We would like to invite you to stop in today and let us help cloth your children for less.

    We’re located in the Old Fire House on Rockingham Street in Bellows Falls.
