About Us

Kara Johnston, Owner-creator

Like many, I hold multiple titles and roles! Mom, wife, camp-wife, daughter, sister, aunt, nurse, creator and professional kid-wrangler. I cannot forget cook, server, cleaner, animal caregiver, handyman,friend and entrepreneur!

Coastal Hive started in 2019 after I decided to leave a successful previous business (Evercoast Handmade) to be run by my friend Cheryl.  I wanted to do something a little different, I wanted a way to create products that made my life and others’ easier. I wanted to create things that served double duty, that were affordable, easy, fun and versatile. So here I am, continuously trying to find ways to connect to my community, my customers and make saving our environment from single use plastic just a little bit easier.

Our vision.

Coastal Hive was created in order to share an easy way for all people to make small changes every single day. We designed our products to be multi-purpose, to be durable and affordable as well as fun.  We want our products to do what we say they do and more. Our vision is that our products become a staple in your home, your life and your way of living .
