Kansas City Thrifts & Picks: Go Explore KC Launches Hidden Gems Tour


In a city rich with history, it makes sense Kansas City has some of the best antiquing, thrifting and picking in the Midwest. From Westport to River Market, Liberty to Hyde Park – and places in between – Go Explore KC has shopped all the spots and created a Hidden Gems tour showcasing a few of the best places for amazing treasure hunting in the city. 

Whether you’re upcycling or simply searching for the perfect patina, our Hidden Gems tour is a fun way to explore Kansas City’s first-rate second-hand hotspots. Discover vintage (and, in some cases new) clothing, one-of-a-kind home decor pieces, funky furniture, oddities and so much more along the way on Go Explore KC’s Hidden Gems Tour. 

We feature local locations and sites known for updating inventory often, so you’re always sure to find a priced-right treasure you can’t live without. Before you head out on the tour, we recommend visiting individual location websites or calling to confirm hours. With ten locations on the Go Explore KC Hidden Gems tour, you can plan a weekend (or week!) of treasure hunting with friends!
