Meet Cameo. Cameo is a beekeeper, and she has a business idea. She wants to open a beekeeping shop on Valencia Street. The shop will offer top-quality local honey to local honey lovers, and top-quality beekeeping gear to local beekeepers.
It will be called Her Majesty’s Secret Beekeeper, and Cameo is chronicling the fits and starts of getting a business off the ground on the official company blog. Post number one:
From the very beginning, I wanted the store to be on Valencia street. I’m a little weird in the way I shop in SF. I’m still a small-town girl at heart, so I always try to shop within the borders of Castro, 16th, 18th, and Valencia. And plus, 826 Valencia, Paxton Gate, Four Barrel, Five and Diamond, Ritual… I can go on forever. Valencia Street is the bomb-diggity.
Read on for more about Cameo’s search for a space, and all the paperwork and junk that follows.
Also of note: Cameo is friends with our old pal Emergency Beekeeper.
