Small batch goods and locally-produced items are more than just buzzy phrases used by retailers to attract the eyes of consumers. It’s about knowing where a product was made and who made it, possibly even buying directly from the person who put their time and effort into creating what you’ll use, wear or apply. While not unique to KC, the maker and doer community is thriving in town thanks to a greater appreciation for quality, handmade items.
