Queen Bee

Check out my feature article in the Kent County News!

I’ve always had a passion for crafts and anything creative! There wasn’t a holiday that I wasn’t busy creating new crafts or testing out my ideas to gift friends and family. About 10 years ago, I started painting furniture. I scoured local auctions and searched online for furniture I could transform into one-of-a-kind pieces to sell out of my garage and online Facebook store. With the encouragement and a lot of help from my husband my dream went from garage to store 2 years ago right here in Chestertown, Maryland. I love getting to share my passion, talent, and eye for finding unique, vintage pieces. But the best part about my store is getting to meet all the beautiful and different people searching for their next great find.


My name is Helen Cowley aka Queen Bee. I live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with my husband Wes. We have 3 grown kids: our son Chris lives in Ohio with his husband Kevin, our daughter Amanda lives in Wisconsin with her husband John, and our daughter Deanna is attending the University of Maryland. I love gardening and have quite the green thumb. We have 2 rescue dogs, an English Setter named Baxter and a prissy mutt named Keanu. The newest addition to our family is a dilute calico named Harley Quinn.
