Golden & Pine is like the girl who’s popular in middle school because she’s nice to the new kid but keeps rolling up the waist of her uniform skirt even though she ends up in detention. Owner Stephanie Agne, whose look leans toward handmade and ethnic with a focus on ethical, has created a shop that is comfortable yet fresh, appealing to singletons, young marrieds and established families alike.
“We look for products that are durable, but soft and comfortable. Even better, washable,” says Agne. “We have a whole line of indoor/outdoor rugs that are perfect for families with kids and dogs, but people can hardly believe they can go outdoors because they have such great texture.”
Agne recently moved the shop from East Brookside—where they had outgrown their space—to the shops at Prairie Village. In the new location she has been able to add more lines—including togs for baby—many of which are exclusive to Kansas City.
“We try to avoid ‘trendy’ and bring our clients along so they can see how vintage adds texture to a space.”
