Community

a store named STUFF is dedicated to people, not product.

The idea that lives can be filled with creativity is what inspires The STUFF Sisters. They believe environments are a window into your soul. Your home, your work environment, how you dress, and the places you spend time define you. Even your choice of coffee speaks about your unique character. The STUFF Sisters like diversity, individuality, and being inspired. That's is why the store is grounded in community.

How do they do it? They have a passion for handmade goods. They research every item so they can share with their customers how, where, and when it was created. They offer original works from local, regional, national, and international artists to show a wide breadth of perspectives. They invite many points of view to be seen by their customers.

They choose to sell products made by "the makers movement". They seek creative, artistic, and well-made stuff.

Kansas City is their home. They grew up in KC and chose to build the business here. But their store is bigger than just Kansas City. It is a place where the creative world finds a home.

The store supports artists and the greater art community. They partner with charities - 501(c)(3) organizations - that thrive to make the world a better place. a store named STUFF co-hosts over 30 charity events a year. Additionally, they donate to over 100 charities each year.
