Happy Thanksgiving from Hang Ups in KC

Five orange pumpkins sit in a row in front of a distressed, wooden background.

We both feel so blessed with the support of our families, friends and our customers on this crazy fun journey we’re on.
If you’d like to come out and see us in person in December we’ll have a pop-up shop open at Meyer Music in Overland Park (corner of 133rd and Quivera) on Saturday December 5th and at Meyer Music North (at the Boardwalk Square Shopping Center) on Saturday December 12th.
We wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving!

Teacher Gifts That Give Back

It’s that time of year when we are frantically trying to help our kids wrap up a school year and want to thank their teachers with a gift.  Our children’s teachers receive jewelry.  Surprised?  Probably not.  Here are a few things that we cooked up this year.

My sons speech pathologist will receive this tongue-in-cheek nod to her profession.  I stamped “I have ways of making people talk” onto a strip of aluminum and then mounted it onto a nice sturdy piece of brown leather.  The beauty of this style of bracelet is that I can be creative and stamp pretty much anything I’d like.  I hope she loves it.

We have several great options for teachers gifts in our Literacy Kansas City Collection.  We can even custom create jewelry to your specifications.  A portion of every purchase goes directly back to Literacy Kansas City, an amazing organization that provides free individualized tutoring services to adults in the Kansas City area.  Teachers love literacy!

My older son’s orchestra teacher will receive this violin tuning peg necklace.  She introduced him to the viola and has inspired and encouraged him for two years.  He moves on to a different orchestra teacher next year so I wanted to make sure to thank her with a special gift.

We have so many great gifts for music teachers in our Band of Angels Collection.  Teachers also love that a portion of the proceeds from their gift goes to such a great organization.  Band of Angels lends instruments to children in need so they can join band and orchestra programs.  They also offer scholarships to the students in the program so that they can further their music education.  Every purchase provides the gift of music education to kids in need.

Now that the teachers gifts have been taken care of we look forward to summery fun with our kids and wish you a wonderful summer as well!
