The Sleeping Bee is located in a modern building reflecting the early 1900s in design. The building was designed and built by the owners in 2006. The facade mirrors other stores in Farmville's historic district complimenting the quaint feel that is so charming about shopping in the downtown district. Customers frequently comment on how nice it is to see an old building restored, not realizing they are standing in a new one. Reclaimed pine was used for the flooring, stairs, and service desk, all furnished and installed by a local Virginia craftsman. The atmosphere is one of shopping in a hundred year old building with modern touches, set off by an eclectic mix of furniture, accessories, and gifts.
