Top Drawer Resale Boutique: Supporting Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care

By  0 Comments

“One of the loveliest shops I have ever seen!” “I always find an amazing deal and great quality.” “Everything is one of a kind. I buy all my clothes here.” “I like knowing my shopping dollars are supporting a great organization.” 

These are just a few of the compliments the dedicated volunteers at Top Drawer Resale Boutique hear on a daily basis. Top Drawer is an upscale resale boutique stocked with quality new and gently used clothing and home accessories. Whether you’re looking for a unique jacket, artisan jewelry, a new pair of boots or a beautiful painting, this is the store for you. It’s a hidden gem located in Ranchmart Shopping Center.  

The high-quality inventory comes from a variety of sources. It may be someone paring down their clothes closet, a business getting rid of excess inventory, or items from a loved one’s estate. Our stock changes daily, so shop often! Shopping at Top Drawer is eco-friendly and socially responsible. Recycling clothing is environmentally friendly and charitable at the same time. All proceeds support Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care, providing expert care, peace of mind, comfort, guidance and hope to all ages at all stages of serious illness.

A unique aspect of Top Drawer is their Jewelry for Hospice project. About three years ago, Kathy Corbin, a Top Drawer volunteer, saw a need to increase the jewelry selection to give customers more choices. She began soliciting jewelry donations from individuals all over the K.C. metro area to build up the jewelry inventory. Kathy also thought it would be fun to make one-of-a-kind jewelry to add to the mix. 

Top Drawer now has an impressive off-site workshop where new designs are created every week. Many pieces contain Swarovski crystals and semiprecious stones. Jenny McClelland, a local artist, began volunteering for the jewelry project two years ago. She designs beautiful and distinctive statement pieces that are offered through Top Drawer. For us, it’s exciting to receive jewelry donations, as we never know what we will get. In addition to jewelry in excellent condition, we also accept tarnished, broken and out-of-style jewelry can be redesigned into an original piece of art! Customers will always find an unexpected treasure here!

If you would like to donate items to our boutique, please drop them off at Top Drawer, 9433 Mission Road, Leawood, Kansas. We accept new and gently used high-quality clothing and home accessories in excellent condition. If you would like to donate new, used or broken jewelry that we can incorporate into unique designs, please drop them off at Top Drawer during regular hours or call 913-642-2292.
