About Queen Bee
Queen Bee Market, San Diego’s original urban-style, artisan market features over 100 local and national vendors specializing in handmade and vintage accessories, clothing, home décor, furniture, paper arts and more. The bi-annual event is celebrating its 20th show in May 2017.
Vendors are highly curated and a select number from each category are featured so attendees have a diverse and unique shopping experience at every show. Vendors are fresh, trendy, have a strong social media following and beautiful setups, a true Etsy come-to-life experience. Walking into each booth at the Queen Bee Market is like walking into a small handmade shop.
Queen Bee Market was founded in 2010 and is owned and operated by sisters, Kellie Dooley and Allison Gharst, also owners of their own handmade product company, Peabody and Sassafras. Through each show, Queen Bee Market has made charitable donations to Operation Smile, Children of the Nations, Ronald McDonald House of Southern California and the North Coast Auxiliary Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital.
