Every RE: vendor brings something truly unique to the market. They are passionately creative people. The vision for what RE: can become is brought to life by its vendors; their creations, their co-working relationships, and the value they bring to the customers.
At any given time, RE: has more than 50 dedicated and creative vendors. People who push themselves. People who don’t necessarily create the same things this month that they created last, meaning each of your visits will be a new treasure hunt. We work hard to make our store special and that means being unique compared to other stores in the Kansas City area.
With access to onsite storage and workshop space, the vendors are able to fully embrace the life of “pickers”. Collecting furniture, or pieces of furniture from auctions, garage sales, flea markets, or wherever their picking takes them. Though sometimes unsure of what these pieces may become they soon unravel into treasures as they are sanded, painted, and hammered into amazing one-of-a-kind heirlooms.
There is a waiting list of hopeful RE: vendors. If you too would like to be considered for any upcoming vendor opening, please email us photos of your work, and contact information.
If you’ve been to RE:, you’ve likely met Jeff. He’s the ever-present smiling face greeting customers as they enter or explore RE:. If you’ve talked to Jeff once, he will remember you the next time you visit. You likely will become fast friends. When not chatting with shoppers, Jeff can be found maintaining the building in any way that is needed.
Chrysalyn’s role is less visible to customers, but critical to RE:’s expanding success. She manages all marketing and promotional activities, selects and supports vendors, and works to grow RE:’s service lines. Chrysalyn’s prior life as an event planner means RE:’s ever-expanding workshops and special events unfold with a precision that exceeds expectations.

We hear it all the time—“I really want that but how will I get it to from the third floor to my car?” We’ve got you covered! Our Junk Hunks can help you move items from the store to your car. We can also help you set up delivery if your car is just a little too small.
