Bee Skeps

We love antiques, so why not add one to your garden... 
Bee Skeps.
These unassuming woven structures are designed to house honeybees.  They were once used to carrying bees from Europe to America in the early 1600's.
These "honeybee hotels" are a rarity and an antique, so they range from $500.00 - $1,000.00.  They do look great in the garden, but they are also used for display inside.  Most believe they are too valuable and fragile to sit outside.
