The Polished Edge jewelry store in Kansas City gives back to the community.
The fine jewelry store – in the Power and Light District – has generously donated over the last few years to various charitable organizations in the Metro Kansas City area. In addition, as much as they can, they deal with vendors who are minority based or have products made in the U.S.
We learned about this admirable action during our stop there. Lisa had won a gift from the store during a giveaway on a blog. We figured it would be a quick stop on our KC trip. It turned into about an hour visit.
One of the store’s employees – Carl – “interviewed” Lisa, so he would know the perfect gift for her. They chatted for quite a while.
Meanwhile, the second team member offered me a hot chocolate. It was tasty and warmed me up from the chilly walk through the Power and Light District.
Monica and I also visited. It turns out that she and her husband have friends in Omaha and visit occasionally. She mentioned how much she loves our Old Market historic shopping district. She loves the brick streets.
The store works with American designers and crafters.
The store offers Alex and Ani jewelry. They are known for eco-friendly products, designed to provide positive energy.
The first thing I liked was the use of large holiday ornaments on top of the jewelry cases. One view showed the H&R Block building in the background.
A most impressive view is the window display featuring a variety of Santa Claus figures. They are designed by artist Deb Henderson. She decorated the White House during the Clinton administration.
The weathered glass and door used as a back drop came from Carl’s house. They were located in the basement when he moved in.
