A few weeks ago, I let you guys in on a little project that I had been working on, the opening of my new studio. This has been a bit of a journey that has been going on for some time, and now I am excited to share more with you all.
At the close of the year, I had a soft opening for the new Kara Kersten Design studio. I had a small gathering that included my family, close friends and some current clients. I was also able to include a few local small businesses to share some of their gems. I was excited to be able to provide a space for them to feature some of their favorite products.
Among the featured vendors was Scout & Cellar clean-crafted wine, who just so happens to be sold by my mom. She supplied all of the libations for the gathering. We were also thrilled to partner with Janesko Fine Art who brought some spectacular pieces to hang in our space. All artwork seen is currently for sale - email for inquiries]. The ultra creative vendors, The City Girl Farm who featured their infamous Chicken Footstools and PerpetuaKC who showcased their Everlasting Jewelry collection were also there to show their unique and beautiful pieces. We also had some exciting items included in our raffle prizes.
We partnered with The City Farm Girl for the The Little Red Raffle. This mission behind the raffle was to help support Thelma’s Kitchen. Thelma is known for her generosity in providing meals to those in need in Kansas.
Despite the challenges that last year brought, I can honestly say that it felt really good to see everyone come together and support one another. It was truly a “full-circle moment” and definitely a great time had by all. I am looking forward to being able to share more of my space with you all as time progress and this journey continues. Stay tuned, because we have more exciting events planned for this year!
