Established in 2007, this successful homeware business has a trusted, reputable and distinctive brand.

One of the benefits to owning a business like this is its loyal base of repeat customers within the local area. The business has a broad supply base which enables a great choice of designer homeware brands and frequent refreshing of stock lines.

The current owner is an artist and designer, and a lover of all things French and shabby chic. They have featured in the national press, in publications such as Country Homes and Interiors, The English Home, The Times, and 25 Beautiful Homes. Consequently, Busy Bee Studio is a shabby chic haven, full of vintage dreams.

The business has also been able to build up an excellent social media presence with 11,756 followers on Facebook, 5,524 on Instagram, and it also comes with an email database with 1,562 subscribers on it to date.

The business generates its sales through the studio as well as the website - offering beautiful gifts and homeware, as well as a range of creative activities and special events.

Busy Bee Studio has been trading for 15 years in a barn shop next to the current owner’s home. Primarily run as lifestyle business, the shop currently opens over limited opening times, giving any new potential owner a massive scope to see the business grow. As the business is currently situated in a barn on the property of the current owner, it will need to be relocated.

The online side of the business was started in the year 2000. It is now seeing plenty of traffic - including organic traffic - to its website. The site for the business has been beautifully designed using WordPress e-commerce so the new owners will have full access to the CMS system to amend or edit as required.

This business opportunity is ideal for anyone who is looking for an online business that has a lot of growth potential and can easily be added to any similar business service.

The shop only physically opens its doors for 40 days out of the year – therefore, any new owner who has time to increase the hours put into the business should see rewards for this very quickly.
