Holiday Pop-up Shop 11.12.2014

We are SOOO excited to kick off the holiday season with a little Pop-up shop in our own studio! We got to thinking it would be fun to pull together a few of our favorite local Kansas City makers to have a little shopping event, and before we knew it, we had what we think is a pretty killer group assembled. There are home goods, fine art prints, jewelry, leather goods, T-shirts, women’s wear, ceramics, accessories, and the list goes on and on! Plus, we will even have a fun Photo Booth by the talented One Sparrow Creative to capture some memories of the night! There will be some snacks and drinks to get you in the shopping mood, and what’s better than getting some shopping done early before madness of the holidays truly begins! We hope you can join us! Here’s a look at the fabulous vendors who will be there (scroll down for links to their websites):

1. Happy Habitat // 2. Jaime Rovenstine // 3. Janesko // 4. Prairie Goods // 5. Ampersand Design Studio // 6. Nickel & Suede // 7. Convivial Production // 8. Ocean and Sea // 9. Maddy Nash // 10. Alicia Janesko

 

Introducing the Kansas City Baseball Tee! 10.16.2014

WOOOOHOOO! We are so proud of Kansas City! Whether you were a baseball fan before or not, you are NOW — are we right?!!! The energy in this city is electric right now! We’ve been waiting 29 years for our Royals to head back to the World Series and we can’t wait to show our pride in the coming weeks!

We couldn’t resist, and after the release of our Kansas City totes, we’ve been wanting to put our hand-painted lettering on tee shirts also. Since, we wanted to make these for ourselves to wear, we thought you guys might want to wear them, too.

They will be hot off the presses and ready to pick up at our studio a week from today, Thursday Oct. 23rd from 10 – 4 or we can ship them out Wednesday. Head to the shop to get yours.

Be sure to celebrate along with us and post pics of your new tee at #ampersandheartskc and copy us @ampersanstudio

GO ROYALS! GO KC!

Summer’s on it’s way out (boo), and school is in! At least in our world, it is. Our little guys are heading back to school (each of our boys is starting preschool) this week and next and that means it’s time for back to school gear! Is there anything better than a new box of crayons and that first day of school outfit? We spent some time hunting for some things that would make heading back to the classroom a little more fun. Happy school days! For Boys:

1. J. Crew Backpack  //  2. Paper-Source Journals  //  3. Giggle Helmet  //  4. Danslashed Hockey Stick  //  5. Mighty Nest Lunch Bag  //  6. Target Reusable Snack Bag  //  7. Cotton On Shoe and Shoe  //  8. Boden USA Shirt

We Heart Kansas City: Finefolk Sprint / Summer 2014 Fashion Show

Last Saturday the Ampersand ladies attended the Finefolk fashion show in Kansas City’s Haw Contemporary. We drooled over the collections curated by owner Leslie Fraley! If you didn’t get a chance to make it be sure stop by her boutique shop in the KC Crossroads to see her designer lines of clothes, accessories, and beauty products. The Kansas City fashion scene just keeps getting better and better, right? Let us know what you think!
