Kansas City Shopping - Days 2 & 3


Our first stop on Day 2 was Curious Sofa in Prairie Village, Kansas (near downtown KC)


What a great shop! Smaller than I expected, but chock full of cute, unique things.


(that's my mom -headed for some linens.)
I was so busy looking and admiring - I forgot to get any more photos.

Next.......

We headed to Atchison, Kansas to visit the original Nell Hill's location.






I love the drive to Atchison - lots of fields, wild turkeys, trains, and a large river.

Atchison is a cute town along the Missouri River.

And you know how I adore old houses. So, I snapped a few photos of the beautiful homes in the historic district - it was a dreary day.





Here is Amelia Earhart's birthplace - in a gothic revival along the cliffs of the Missouri River. (Her grandparents lived in this house).............




And here are a few more beautiful homes in Atchison.






Day 3 was also fun - but I had kids surrounding me and just completely forgot to take any pictures. We shopped in Brookside - a cute little area of Kansas City where my sister used to live. I love Lauren Alexandra (children's boutique) and Stuff -hand-crafted art items.



Pin It!
