I recently placed an internet order for some beekeeping supplies. I decided to order online rather than buying from a local beekeeping shop because the prices online were much cheaper, even after shipping.

I placed the order from http://www.beemaidbeestore.com/ for two jackets (with veils), a smoker and a bee brush. The complete order, after tax and shipping was $138.98. Here is an “unboxing” video of the package I received from BeeMaid:

 

I did miss one thing in the video that I wanted to note here. The smoker actually came with 3 “KwikStart” smoker pellets to use as samples. I don’t really know much about them, but the instructions say “Simply light with a flame, blow it out and watch the smoke roll.”
