Today's merchandising Monday is artistic & unique! 

Partner with local artists to provide your customers with one of a kind items! 


See how Everything Kitchens in Springfield, MO cultivates local talent!

Most recently Everything Kitchens has teamed up with local artist Rebecca Christus owner of Mix It Up Art to offer custom painted KitchenAid Mixers at their retail store location. Everything Kitchens has also helped source parts for local producers as well, like special ordering 100 mountable bottle openers to go on the side of a locally made beer bottle caddy. 

"Teaming up with local talent is a excellent way to offer unique items at your storefront and even the opportunity to offer a new revenue stream. Everything Kitchens has helped many fledgling businesses by bringing them into their family of brands to offer their products both on their website and retail store including 1906 Gents, Sustainable by Nature, UTC Hardwoods, and Mix it Up Art." - Rebecca Christus

"Sometimes the best way to help your store stand apart from the rest is to look at what is available in your own community. Collaborate with a local artisan to create something totally unique to your store." - Rebecca Christus
