Our shop was first created by a bohemian genius in 2015 as Gypsy's Used Clothing. Transformed in 2018 by the dedicated entrepreneur, Jess, to Bee You Creative Styles. We aim to share our love of beautiful things while being a beacon for sustainable fashion. Helping you find the best styles and deals for any occasion! This gem of a shop was first opened inside the historic building The Hive in the heart of Carp. When the world shifted it's shopping habits around a pandemic, we shifted to markets and online sales. In 2022, we moved to the heart of Sandy Hill in downtown Ottawa. Our vision is to cherish quality things by giving them new life.
What is Bee You's Mission?
Bottom line; it's a clothing store, but between the lines it's so much more!
Bee You is not just a fun name; it's rooted in every positive reason to buy used & local. Our mascot, the humble bee, is a powerful symbol for the first step in living sustainably and working as a community. At Bee You we show you how we can all make a difference one piece of clothing at a time.

About the Owner, Jess
A California girl at heart, half Dutch and proud to have been in Canada for over 14 years now. Bee You is the creative product of my life. From a childhood filled with dance, California beaches, nature trails, living in Europe, and working with children in both dance & literacy - to over a decade of deliciously creative work in catering & events. All coming full circle from my very first job at a boutique shop in California to an inspiring stint at Clothes Encounters of a Second Time. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to turn Bee You into something amazing! Many thanks to my husband and two girls for their never ending support! xo
SHOP LOCAL & be inspired to always BEE YOU!
