Leawood Retail Store moves to Martin City
By Bonnie Mentel
StickSisters, a home goods retail shop at 5005 W 119 St. in Hawthorne Plaza in Leawood, is moving to Martin City this fall. It will reside in what is known as the carriage house behind Rooms that Bloom, at 13442 Cherry Street. Nancy Davidson and her sister, Laura Radke, own the boutique.
Stick Sisters focuses on providing unique gifts, accessories and home décor. They are also a Dash & Albert rug partner store.
“We tend to focus on regional and artistic gifts, locally made and unique. We try to find things that you can’t find at every other shop in town,” says Davidson. “We have a following for wall art, jewelry, cute things for your front door, a lot of custom [artificial] floral design, and Dash & Albert rugs.”
The sisters plan to open in Martin City after Labor Day and be fully open in October. “We’ll definitely be doing a grand opening weekend October 4-6,” Davidson said.
The shop will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., matching the hours at Rooms that Bloom. They hope to host some special evening events once a month when they will stay open later.
The store currently operates in Leawood, but Davidson said that they are relocating due to the expensive rent as their lease expires.
“I’ve always envisioned this store as being in a free-standing location and it was through networking with customers of ours that connected me and my sister with Krista Sloan (owner of Rooms that Bloom). It’s been so fun. I just love the vibe of Martin City and the people are awesome, so nice and welcoming. We are looking forward to getting that kind of more relaxed, comfortable vibe in the store,” she said.
Sloan had been storing antique furniture in the carriage house, but now that furniture is stored in a two-story barn by the alley. She says she has all types of lamps, furniture and pictures that will be accessible to shoppers and moved into the shop as room becomes available. Rooms that Bloom specializes in European antiques, accessories, and gifts. Sloan also manages a booth at the Mission Road Antique Mall.
