OWINGS MILLS, MD. – Metro Centre at Owings Mills has gotten sweeter with the opening of Honey House, which is dedicated to showing consumers the potential of “honey in every room in the house.”


Honey House serves as the production facility, fulfillment center and retail showroom of Waxing Kara: a 24/7 e-Commerce site featuring a premium line of food, home and body products called, “Bee Inspired® Goods”– now sold in over 235 stores across the United States, including Anthropologie and Uncommon Goods.


Founded in 2012 by local artist, entrepreneur and beekeeper, Kara Brook, Waxing Kara® has been featured in print and online magazines such as Food & Wine, Southern Living, Country Living, Cooking Light, Lonny, Garden & Gun, Martha Stewart Living and Refinery 29.


Setting the tone is the dramatic storefront featuring a beekeeping narrative on glass with a story that changes with the seasons. Its design combines the vision and talents of Brook and fellow Maryland Institute College of Art graduate, artist Annie Howe (founder of bmorepapercuts.com).

Upon entering Honey House, customers will find an array of items made with honey, beeswax, lavender from Brook’s Eastern Shore farm, as well as other ingredients made possible by bees.


Shelves are stocked with jars of Spring and Autumn Waxing Kara Honey; Butter Bean, Wildflower Honey and Dutch Clover Honey – all from the Eastern Shore; Blueberry Blossom Honey from the Jersey Shore, Orange Blossom Honey from Florida, and Almond and Cherry Blossom Honey from California.
