Burts Bees – An American Journey from Maine to North Carolina
In the summer of 1984, Maine artist, Roxanne Quimby, was trying to thumb a ride home. Eventually a bright yellow Datsun pickup truck pulled over, and Roxanne instantly recognized Burt Shavitz, a local fellow whose beard was almost as well-known as his roadside honey stand. Burt and Roxanne hit it off. Before long, Roxanne was making candles with unused wax from Burt's beehives.
