Made in KC opened in May of 2015 to provide local Kansas City artists and makers a platform to reach customers in Overland Park. As many of the city's artists, designers, and makers are centralized around midtown and Kansas City's budding Crossroads district, Made in KC aimed to provide exposure and access to the greater metro area. The Overland Park store at Prairiefire became a quick success and led to a second location in the Village at Briarcliff in North KC in October 2015.
By spring of 2016, Made in KC was able to open a third location in Prairie Village at Corinth Square and began two new partnerships with HMK on the Country Club Plaza and at Hallmark in Crown Center.
Growing from a pop-up shop with 13 artists, Made in KC now features work from over 200 local artists, designers, and makers. With three stand-alone locations and two partnership locations, Made in KC aims to provide a robust platform for local small businesses to reach customers throughout the Kansas City metro area. With one partnership, we give brands access to five geographically and demographically different locations.
Made in KC curates its product from hundreds of submissions and works to support brands through partnerships, relationships, and resources. We work actively to build our network of vendors and resources so that we can help brands grow their sales but also build a more sustainable business.
We have many fun projects in the works including gift baskets for large local companies attracting new talent or welcoming new guests to the city we love. This is just one of the ways we hope to provide our brands with more exposure within Kansas City and beyond.
