New Shop in Waldo: Hawthorne and Ivy

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate-Kansas City Homes

 

There's a new boutique shop in Waldo--tucked away in a former gas station  from the 1920s!  Hawthorne and Ivy opened a couple of weeks ago at 7142 Wornall, just south of Betty Rae's and next to Michael Avery's hair salon.

 

You may be familiar with Hawthorne and Ivy's shop in Weston.  This is shop #3 for owner Elinor Hagan Lowe.  She started out designing custom 'mother's bracelets' , following in her mother's footsteps.  Elinor runs Paco Designs in Lenexa, then came the Weston store, and now the Waldo spot. 

 

 

Step inside and you will find all the items attractively displayed on the walls and tables--it's an easy store to browse!  There is lots of jewelry, including the mother's bracelets, and so much more:  Royals gear, candles and soaps, clothing and accessories plus some baby items and wall art.  The thing that caught my eye was this handmade necklace hanger:  a piece of wood with champagne (or wine) corks attached to hang the jewelry.  You could also stick  earrings in the cork as well.  This shop also takes old wood from barns and doors, then repurposes it to customized wall hangings.  You can order with the phrase or name of your choice, or purchase one with the lettering in place.  This would make a thoughtful housewarming gift!  The shop also carries special religious jewelry for first communions or baptisms--and don't miss the special 50% off room in the back of the store!  If you are interesting in making your own jewelry, Hawthorne and Ivy hosts craft classes around themes like Valentine's Day or Christmas.

 

 

Shopping at locally owned stores and shops is what makes living in Brookside and Waldo so special.  You will find items that just aren't available at a national retailer.  Stop by and welcome Hawthorne and Ivy to Waldo!  Hours are still being established; generally noon-6pm Tuesday through Saturday.  Convenient  parking in front of the store (or on 72cd St) at 7142 Wornall, between Michael Avery's and Betty Rae's.

Mary, great ideas for unique gifts. I liked the hanger with the champagne corks.
