We’ve posted about events and restaurants to try but we haven’t posted about our favorite local shops! Kansas City has a great market for local stores and overall amazing creatives! With all the different areas in Kansas City from downtown at the Garment District, First Fridays and other areas of Kansas like Downtown OP and Town Center, you can always find what you need and unique pieces that you may not find at major retailers.
I’m sure this shop doesn’t come as a surprise, it’s been one of our favorites for years. We actually met Susan, the owner at an event we hosted. They had a little pop up shop and we fell in love with everything. Not only do they have great clothes but their staff really makes your experience great. Everyone is so nice and helpful and they even have wine while you shop. You can even host a shopping party which we may do sometime soon! If you are not local, they will ship! Check out their Facebook page and Instagram, they are always posting some great pieces!
Another one of our favorite shops is Shop Scoobie. They have two locations, one inside The Garment District next to Power and Light and a new store in Prairie Village. The owner is adorable and so nice along with their staff. It’s always refreshing to go into their store and see all their unique goodies. You know you’ll be walking out with one of a kind pieces. Make sure to follow Shop Scoobie on Instagram, they are always posting new pieces and even taking you along the process of finding new items at Market. Plus, she shares some of her family time and let me tell you, her girls and new little man are adorable!
The Garment District in Power and Light is such a cool concept shop. One, it has a bar and two, it’s compiled of local vendors so you can find anything you are looking for. I mean, who doesn’t love drinking and shopping! You’ll spend hours in this store!
This mother and daughter duo created such a fun and adorable shop. Located in Overland Park, you’ll find some really great affordable pieces. We love following them on Instagram to see their awesome outfit ideas and overall free spirits. They are both so nice and happy, it’s infectious! We love popping in the store or even shopping online!
This is a recent find for us and what a find! The store is an absolute dream and their pieces are even more impressive! They offer affordable accessories from a variety of earrings, bags and hair accessories. Check out their shop online or we highly recommend heading over to Brookside to see their beautiful new store!
One of Jen’s favorite accessories is Nickel and Suede which I think is everyone’s favorite! The owner is stunning and she has the best style so of course she designed the best earrings that are a major trend! You can easily shop online or pop into one if their two stores in Liberty…or both!
Home Decor, Gifts and More…
Another store you may not be surprised by, is one of our favorite home and accessory shops! This is another mother and daughter ran store (three daughters!) and I wish I was in their family, they are all blonde and gorgeous, just like their store. This is our go to store for birthday and every party paper needs. Their home decor pieces are always beautiful and one of a kind. They have the best decor options for every season. One of our favorite time of year at their store is fall and Christmas! Anytime we are at Park Place in Leawood, it’s a must to stop in. Also, they offer home styling sessions! Their eye for style is stunning, sign me up!
I stumbled across their store when they first opened in Downtown and quickly feel in love. The owners are so fun and the shop really brings their love for great style all while incorporating one of a kind pieces. They have a variety of home decor, fun kids toys and decor, bar accessories and funny cards and gifts. You cannot walk out of this store empty handed. They recently opened their newest store in Town Center!
A friend and I stumbled across Tyler Kingston Mercantile while out to lunch near our old office in North Kansas City. And wow, were we blown away. If you are looking for more modern, boho decor, this is the place. They also have a lot of local products and overall unique, affordable pieces. They recently opened up a new store at Corinth Mall in Praire Village.
