Vintage Redefined @ Vintiques!

Several weeks ago I visited Vintiques ~ a Kansas City shop that has recently reopened in the City Market. What fun ~ the space (located next to the Steamboat Arabia Museum) is full of wonderful finds and treasures that will please any artist looking for bits and pieces to incorporate in their work ~ or for that person who has an appreciation for interesting objects! Everything from castoff casters to vintage office items, miscellaneous game pieces and other oddments, antique lace, buttons and ephemera ~ you name it, there is something to appeal to everyone.

Sheila and Craig are the helpful and enthusiastic proprietors of this wonderful venture ~ not only do they have wonderful wares for sale, they also offer an array of workshops ~ check out the selection here. These look like so much fun I am going to have to find some time to squeeze a couple in. Vintiques is also going to participate in the upcoming spring show: Miss Frenchie's April in Paris. Everything really is up to date in Kansas City!

this is my new favorite store in the whole wide world.... i had the pleasure of serendipitously visiting this store last weekend while we were visiting Kansas City. It is total eye candy. My only regret is that I was flying and my only suitcase didn't have a thimbleful of space left for new additions. ...but OH the things I would have bought if the story had been different. I may have to go back with an empty suitcase in hand. :-)

I am going to have to make a trip to Kansas City just to visit this store.

Do you have any idea if they reopened in another location? I was so sad to discover they closed!
Thanks!

Anonymous - I was disappointed to see them close as well. I do know that the couple that had the business has not opened anywhere else - they have exited the antique business :(
