Vintage chic rules Downtown Bonner
A few business moves are underway in Bonner.
Another vintage furniture renovation business is moving into Downtown Bonner. Mary Clark and Kathy McBride plan to open Garland Taylor Home on June 5, according to their Facebook page, at 201 Oak St. The space was most recently occupied by Found It On the Corner, which also refurbished vintage furniture and decor, though I understand that that business closed due to scheduling challenges for owner Cindy Purtee-Carpenter, who also manages Price Chopper's floral department, and not necessarily because of a lack of business. With Flip Kansas City, Provence on the Prairie and DeeDee's Jewelry and Vintage Decor, Bonner's "vintage" shopping scene seems to be going strong.
A Kansas City, Kansas business is moving to Bonner Springs. MVB Cabinets & Countertops LLC purchased the metal building at 11550 Kaw Drive. The 9-year-old business builds custom cabinet and countertops from orders placed by home builders and has two full-time and two part-time employees.
Feldman’s Farm and Home is going to expand a bit, adding an 800-square-foot space for its “shop and mechanics” area and a mezzanine for storage.
Advanced Chiropractic Services is moving from the former ReMax building at K-7/I-70 to a space between Mr. Goodcents and Pride Cleaners at K-7 and Kansas Avenue.
A few other notes from around town:
• The Bonner Springs Cemetery Advisory Committee had a clean up day April 26, and now they are setting their sights on another cemetery improvement. The committee is planning to construct a gazebo, or “Serenity Pavilion,” in the cemetery and is seeking donations to fund its construction. It got permission from the city to post a sign in the cemetery to promote the project and explain where to send donations.
• The Bonner Springs Senior Center rocked a recent Wii Bowling Tournament with the Lenexa Senior Center. The final score was Bonner Senior Center 526, with 12 strikes, and Lenexa Senior Center, 398, with five strikes.
• It seems a lot of people participated in the Drug Take Back Day on April 26. The police reported that 117 pounds of unwanted and expired drugs were turned in at the Bonner Springs Price Chopper. DeGoler Pharmacy in downtown Bonner also was accepting unwanted medications, and they reported receiving 82 pounds. Good for Bonner residents ensuring that all those drugs were disposed of safely.
