Some of you that have followed me for awhile know that I started out in the West Bottoms. I still have a lot of talented friends there and love going to see all their fabulous finds. I rarely seem to make it out of Lee's Summit these days, but when I do I usually venture to the West Bottoms.
If you haven't been you are definitely in for a treat. I still remember the first time a friend took me to the West Bottoms. I had no idea of what to expect. It was a bitter cold day in January and we weren't going to let that stop us. We grabbed some coffee and off we went. This was several years ago and there were only a handful of vintage shops on that day, but the ones that were there, sucked me right in. If you love repurposed furniture & finds, chippy old goodness, rusty crusty metal, elegant antiques made of solid wood, mid century, industrial or farmhouse, well you are in luck.
I even stood behind Suze Orman in line one time in the West Bottoms. ( I only knew her from watching Oprah)😉
