Holiday gift buying is not for everyone.   I know some people prefer to make their own gifts, donate to a charity like Heifer International in a loved one’s name, or give coupons for services that can be redeemed throughout the year, all wonderful ideas.

  Many of us though still do some gift shopping this time of year.     

If you do plan to buy some gifts this year, please consider supporting local businesses.   One local business that we love is Funky Monkey Corn Company, located at 7115 N. Locust St., Gladstone, MO     (816) 701-6232

Funky Monkey Corn Company is dedicated to bringing you the freshest, funkiest popcorn, kettle corn and caramel corn sustainably.

The people are friendly and the flavors are amazing.  

They will be hosting a meet the artist night next week after hours:  Stop by and see me, buy some art and some popcorn.   I’ll be there Thursday December 17, from 7-9 PM

If you can’t make it to the event you can still stop by the store during business hours to get some delicious popcorn (great gift baskets for friends, kids’ teachers, or employees)   and a photographic print (great gifts for people in your life who love to be surrounded by beautiful, meditative imagery.    We also offer photographic blank cards, great for thank you notes to have on hand for all occasions when you need a card.  They also have some other local businesses featured in the shop (BBQ sauce, dog treats, and some funky hats)
