I am so excited to share a few of my favorite items from local, Kansas City-based shops this holiday season! As a small business owner myself, I love to support shops that represent everything I love about my city. Being small during the craziness of the holiday season can be difficult, so to help out, instead of dropping a ton of money on Black Friday, why don’t you hit up some of these great places on Small Business Saturday?
Hand & Land
– Mr. B’s Wax Candles (KC-based brand)
– Roasted Garlic Salt by Wood + Salt (created in KC, and garlic was harvest from New Roots for Refugees, a KC-based charity that helps refugees resettle in KC and gives them work in agriculture and farming, more info here)
– Native Atlas Muscle Rub and Lip Treatment (KC-based brand)
– Convivial Dish (made and designed in KCMO)
Sweet Kiss Brigadeiro
– A 12-piece custom box with gorgeous holiday-themed Brazilian candies (made by a mother-daughter team in KC)
Handmade Holidays Popup Shop at Park Place
The “Handmade Holidays” pop-up shop at Park Place is a curation of Kansas City locals that craft their goods right here in our beautiful city. From jewelry to specialty food to home décor, these skilled craftsmen and makers bring unique hand-made gift ideas to your home for the holidays. The pop-up shop will be open for the holiday season through December 31st.
Yummylicious Cookies makes great-tasting baked goodies from organic whole-grains and sweeteners. When we say our products are natural, we mean the ingredients we use are minimally processed. They are not sprayed with pesticides or herbicides, or processed with petroleum distillates (Yuck!!!) This means we use basic ingredients like organic whole grains, sweeteners, butter and good ‘ol eggs! No white flour, white sugar, preservatives or oils! We’re not pretending to sell you broccoli, but if you’re in the market for a great treat made with more nutritious ingredients, Yummylicious is the first, and only, place you should look. Everything we make is small-batch, hand crafted at our facility in Lenexa, KS.
Community is at the heart of what makes Kansas City amazing. The individual passions that we share with others is what brings us together. We create, we craft, and we partner with our community…We, like you, are the heart of KC. Enjoy apparel, accessories, jewelry, hats, tees, home décor and more.
