On a recent visit to Atlanta I stopped in this colorful shop and realize this was a brilliant idea this co-op store was. Beehive is part of a trend of co-op business that are popping up all over the place. They provide a great way for minipreneurs to get their product into a store and get face time with customers who come into the store. Vendors pay a small fee for space in the store and dedicate 4 hours a month working in the store. My personal favorite with this trend is Design Collective in Minneapolis, MN.
