mash handmade is a brick and mortar shoppe in kansas city specializing in handmade goods for the home. working with over 30 artists, some local, some not, we bring a unique and constantly changing collection of work under one roof. to be able to send our customers home not just with an object that is thoughtfully created and well crafted, but with a little nugget of information about where it came from and who made it is what makes our days.
mash was opened in the westport neighborhood of kansas city in 2009 by the mother/daughter team of karen tholen and amanda tholen long. after a handful of years of playing with the idea of going into business together, lots of daydreaming, and loads of elbow grease, here we are, thrilled to call mash handmade home.
