It's spring in KC! The Royals are back at spring training, the sun is beginning to give us some warmer days, and it's First Friday week at RE. "Welcome to the Store"!
Friends, if you've never been to the West Bottoms during a First Friday you're missing out on a true Kansas City experience. The West Bottoms, located off the 12th street bridge, is part of what many call "original KC". The Bottoms is full of 100-year-old buildings that have been re-opened into upscale antique, vintage inspired, modern day fixtures and home decor store fronts that can be perused for hours to find an amazing one-of-a-kind treasures.
At last count, there were 20+ locations that can be visited as well as food trucks and eat-in cafes. Some original stores (such as our neighbor Good JuJu) are only open on First Friday weekend. That makes it even more fun to get here while the picking is good!
Even though we're open every week at RE, we put an intentional emphases on resetting and bringing new items for this once a month event. We like to prepare as if "company is coming".
This March will be our 62nd First Friday in the West bottoms. During this time we've seen many small businesses including our own grow and become successful by providing a store front to sell and display their wares.
Our "partners" (as we like to refer to them) may be our favorite thing about RE. Did you know at any given time RE can have up to 60 people selling a product they build, create, design, paint or curate? Having this many partners allows us to offer the very best in items for your home.
Additionally, we're also committed to only partnering with the top brands of their respected industries. Such as Amy Howard Home, Magnolia Home Furniture, Magnolia paint by KILZ, Candle Queen Candles, LQVE, Rooted KC and Sapahn.
What we curate at RE is unlike anything you'll experience anywhere else. We work hard to make sure every time you walk through the doors at RE you will feel Restored and Repurposed toward bringing joy into decorating your spaces.
We hope that this week you'll consider adding us to your list of weekend plans, and don't forget you can sit in our own "feedlot" to enjoy one of our amazing food trucks.
Can't wait to see you!
