Hi, I'm Michelle!

owner of hive. i began this journey of sustainable goods  + handmade in 2017.  hive is now a collective of 130+ community makers who share my passion of creating products that are sustainable and compassionately made.
in early 2023 we continued our passion for sustainable to introduce downtown Salisbury to a eco-friendly hair studio. we have partnered with Green Circle Salons to recycle 95% of our beauty waste. 

hive is ever-evolving and features art, jewelry, plants, body care, stationary, apparel, and more.  it is truly a one stop shop for local and handmade gifts.

hive was dreamt up to give a platform to artists of all kinds and small businesses, and we are so excited to be able to help elevate their work. 

i am originally from buffalo, ny and moved to north carolina in 2011.  my husband chad and I now live in lexington, nc on a tiny farm with our two dogs, thirteen chickens, bunnies, goats + kitty.
