    Blue Sky Bee Supply will be there and we will be happy to bring your advanced orders to save you on tax and shipping. We will match any published price on in-stock honey bottles--stock up now before prices go up in Feb! You want an extractor without shipping? We got you covered--hobby, 9 frame, 18 frame--you name it we'll bring it (preorder by 1/28). Email us and we'll haul it for free to the meeting! We sell everything you see in catalogs.
