A STORE NAMED STUFF is dedicated to people, not product. How do we pursue good stuff in our community?

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 their 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.


Our Christmas Letter 2023...

Human Beings

At Christmas, we pause to write a letter to everyone who gets us through the year. We usually share stories about our lives, our family, our team, or our work. But this year we want to write about someone else.

Taylor is a man. He uses an electric wheelchair that supports his body and head. He speaks slowly and with great effort. For the holidays, he decorated himself and his "wheels" in Christmas cheer. The whole presentation is delightful.

He shopped at our store many times in the past couple of weeks. He put thought into every gift, wanting to be sure that he picked the perfect item for each person he shopped for. At one point or another, everyone on our team was with him.

Yesterday, at the end of his visit and after he had announced that he was officially finished shopping for those on his list, he looked up at one of our team members, intent on completing a long sentence in one breath, and said, "I want to thank you and everyone who works here for always treating me like a human being."

We were both were nearby. We just stopped. We took deep breaths to keep from crying. Our team member didn't miss a beat. She said, "Oh honey, you ARE a human being, and it's our pleasure to work with you."

He left shortly after, happy with the gifts wrapped and on his lap. But, for all of us, his words lingered in our hearts and minds. We skipped several beats, and we noticeably slowed our pace. We calmed our inner musings and emotions. We spoke about him at our family dinner, and he was in our thoughts when we fell asleep.

We should not need to be reminded that the body's physical limits do not diminish value and worth. No one should need to be reminded to treat others kindly. We should not live in a world where this man feels moved to thank us for simply treating a human being as just that. But we were deeply grateful for the reminder.

As 2023 comes to an end, our wish for you is to be fully and completely seen by the world that surrounds you. You are a human being, and we celebrate you.

Actually, we love you.

Casey & Sloane - The STUFF Sisters



We love our community...
