The Vintage Market

Isn't this round ottoman the cutest? I just love it!
The ottoman is a piece I fancy from the Vintage Market.

What is the Vintage Market?
A flea market style boutique located in Kansas City. It's filled with layers of not just old, but new & unique too.

Vintage Market is owned and managed by my friend Kim.
Kim and I met years back when I had the shop downtown. Now, I do the design work for her unique business. Funny how that kind of stuff happens, isn't it?

What can I say about my friend Kim?
Let's see if I can give you a description of my friend.

She's a go getter for one! She's also honest, stuffed full with integrity and kindness, and sincerely cares how others feel. I believe those are rare traits rarely found in most serious minded business woman. If you know what I mean???
For most it's difficult to balance and mix those qualities with real business, and it takes a special person to pull it off in a feng shui kind of way.
There's more...

She's also the hardest working woman, this side of the Missouri River!
I thought no one had me beat on high energy, but Miss Kim does!

So my Calico friends, if you're ever in KC, don't forget to stop by the Vintage Market. I know you'll find a treasure or two.

Enjoy caring and sharing spring days.
