Promote KC is a blog about cool stuff in KC. We love hunting down the small but mighty local entrepreneurs, makers, artists, and businesses and sharing with the community. We love going out and looking for unique products that may just need a little push to the public. We are a small firm that is also a local small business and want the community to know that we are here to help. So, for the next 25 days of the Holiday season, we will promote a local find in our 25 Days of a Local KC Christmas!

DAY #1- Local Find: Wexla

il_570xn-1071507722_frl5We ran across the brand Wexla and it’s maker, Carina Swanson at the Chick Event at Crown Center. It was a bright sunny day, but we were drawn to her booth for the rich soft colors of handmade knitted scraves, hats, and accessories. Hand-made… by a thirteen year old! By far the youngest maker I had met at a pop-up, I was impressed. Carina was poised, polished, and a natural, selling her products like an old-pro, with a smile and a sincerity. Kids’ hats, infinity scarves, cowls and ear warmers- these knits would make perfect Christmas gifts! Find Wexla on Etsy and Instagram!

Have a happy start to the holiday shopping season! #shoplocal #LocalFind #supportsmall #KansasCity #promoteKC
