Our shop started from humble beginnings in 2015 in the village of Carp and was transformed in 2018 by local entrepreneur, Jess, to Bee You Creative Styles. Our journey began in historic Carp, survived a life-changing pandemic that brought our business to markets & online, and in 2022, found our place in Sandy Hill, Ottawa. We are your local clothing store that offers so much more; a chance for you to support your community through consignment, to live the practice of shopping sustainable & local, and show that by cherishing something old you can make a difference, one piece of clothing at a time.
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!
