Remix is a women's consignment boutique in the heart of Brookside, a quaint neighborhood tucked away in Kansas City, MO. Remix is a curated, unique assortment of fun vintage and contemporary finds. It's a collection of pieces including unique haute couture and non-designer apparel, shoes and accessories.
It all began with a blouse.
Catherine, a native "east-coaster", lived in Boston shortly after she graduated from college in Connecticut. She landed a job in her mid-twenties working in Alumni & Development for Harvard University. Her role required her to interface with alumni, donors and faculty on a daily basis. She quickly realized that she had to step up her wardrobe game if she was going to be rubbing elbows with Ivy League elites at events each week and weekend. She was also earning an income that didn't support buying designer or new clothes for each event. It was the week before one of her biggest events and her boss looked at her and said "go get yourself a new blouse –– you're about to meet Harvard's new president." Walking to the T after work, she stumbled upon a consignment boutique in Harvard Square. There, she was able to build a A+ wardrobe on a C- income. She developed her personal style early in her 20's, hunting for Levis at flea markets, thrift stores, and estate sales. She enjoyed the thrill of the hunt, and learned to spot hidden gems. She loved to give these finds a new life through updated, modern styling.
Since moving to Kansas City in 2008, Catherine has always felt the rising demand for unique, reasonably-priced vintage & designer items. She also wants Kansas City and those from afar to have sources to bridge the gap between couture gowns and rock t-shirts. Remix aims to keep merchandise both aspirational and affordable, and focuses on keeping customers happy.
Catherine hopes Remix is not only a place that customers look as a go-to to shop, but also an opportunity to recycle their own pieces and earn money!
Catherine is a busy mom; she has two daughters who are going from one activity/sport to the other. Remix's hours are Monday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. If a customer/consignor is not able to make it to the store within those hours, Catherine is happy to meet clients by making an appointment.
