#208 Bee's Wax Nativity
Acquired 1998Mark and Robyn, our family beekeepers, kept their eye out for a bee's wax set for me. Mark had seen the molds in beekeeper catalogs, but never the set. Robyn's Mom and Dad, Patti and Orin Johnson, were at a beekeeper convention in Reno in November 1998, and saw this set. She called the kids and they said grab it quick! Each piece is entirely made of bee's wax and smells of honey. It is on display in one of my show cases year-around, keeping it on the bottom shelf so that it can stay cool. When I open the door, the honey aroma is very evident! Amazingly, the purchase price was only $35.00 including the wooden stable.
