Looking for Unique Gifts For Graduates?

Look no further!  We have a great selection of graduate gifts from hand-stamped pieces to jewelry made from musical instruments.

This is a small selection from our Literacy Kansas City Collection.  A portion of the proceeds from this collection will be donated directly to Literacy Kansas City.   Literacy KC’s mission is to advance literacy among Kansas City area adults through direct services, advocacy and collaboration.  Their vision is literacy for all.   Who doesn’t love a gift that gives back by helping others?

Jewelry from our Band of Angels Collection also makes great gifts for students and teachers.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of every item in this collection goes directly back to Band of Angels KC.  Band of Angels is a non-profit organization who collect, repair and distribute instruments to kids in need.  They also send many kids to music camp every summer.  We have a lot of fun making jewelry from the instruments that cannot be repaired.  Here’s a small sampling of what is available on our website.

We wish you all a very safe and happy graduate season and Memorial Day Weekend.  Happy Victoria Day to our Canadian Friends!

Please Help Us Support Robin’s Warriors Online Auction

We frequently mention Handmade in Kansas City, a cooperative that we belong to, via our blog and social media.  This week we are particularly proud to be a part of this group of talented makers.  One of our members, Sara from Gypsy Soup, is going through a tough time.  Her sister Robin is battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer.  We all want to help so we are running an online auction to raise money to help with Robin’s medical and living expenses.  The auction is just short of a week old and we’ve already raised $832 for Robin.  Here’s a peek at some of the handmade items, donated by our makers, that are included in the auction.

We invite you to visit the auction by clicking here.  If you click on the collage, above, you will also be taken to the auction site.  The auction ends next Wednesday, May 11th, so you may want to check it out and place your bid as soon as possible.  Most items also have a “Buy Now” option to purchase the item that you love straight out instead of bidding.  Handmade in KC, Sara & Robin all appreciate your support.

Back to Hang Ups in KC business.   Happy Mother’s Day to the Mother’s out there!  We would both like to thank our own Mom’s who have been our biggest supporters and cheerleaders our entire lives.  If you’ve met us and think we’re a little off the wall, well you can thank our Mother’s for that as well.  ♥
