We have another new locally owned business to tell you about in this week’s blog…EB and Company, an ‘inspired accessories’ shop now open at 326. W 63rd St, between Wornall and Brookside Blvd.
Owner Emily Bordner has always had an entrepreneurial spirit—inheriting it from her parents. She had a regular corporate job at Hallmark as a merchandising designer, and started a side business making leather handbags. She expanded into online sales and pop up shops—then decided to open her own retail place here. She chose this location in part because she knows a handful of shop owners who love being in Brookside, and she worked at Bella Napoli while in college. “Brookside has a long tradition of supporting locally owned businesses. It’s really cool to be the new kid on the block, sandwiched between the long term businesses here”.
So..about the store: Emily’s goal is to “own the accessories niche”. She carries several leather bags (made in the Crossroads and featuring domestically sourced leather); earrings, headbands, barrettes, scarves, rings and lip tint from SKIN KC. Prices are very reasonable, ranging from $20 to $180. The styles are current and classic at the same time: tortoise shell, metals, warm and cool colored materials. You may have already seen some of her offerings at Made in KC.
Emily will host the grand opening of her store on September 28, with specials, beverages and a pop up store to be determined. See more about EB and Company at the website or on Instagram @eb.and.co. Hours are Monday through Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 12-5. Stop in and browse through EB and Company the next time you are in Brookside!
