Reopening The Green Door

Green Door Antiques is opening in a new spot with a slightly new game plan. Darren Killen and Dustin Swartz have purchased a building at 2507 Jefferson Street, just west of Studio Dan Meiners, to hold their wonderful wares.

“We wanted a space of our own,” Swartz says. “This move triples our showroom space, allowing for better design and display as well as more inventory.”

Kansas City does not have many dealers who still source in Europe, but in addition to the Round Top, Texas, shows and domestic hunting and gathering, Killen and Swartz are quite comfortable hopping across the pond.  

“We source from around the world,” Killen says. “Recently we focused on England for garden and stone, Scotland and Belgium for furniture and smalls, and we brought in some gorgeous garden items from Italy.” 

In addition to their finds, Killen and Swartz are creating an additional draw.

“We’re pleased to announce our new wine tasting bar,” Killen says. “We plan to feature small Italian vineyards that we have discovered in our travels, as well as select wines from the U.S. and around the world that you won’t find at other local shops. For example, England is producing amazing wines, and it would be fun to explore that.”
