We LOVE Local Artists!!

In fact, we only carry local artisans items in our store! Did you know that our artists also work in our store? It's nice to know when you purchase something that you can speak to and get to know the person that created it. Each of our artists pays special attention to detail and puts a lot of love into their work for you, our customers and friends. We'll be introducing you to our artists and crafters over the next few weeks. Please take a few moments and enjoy a little Q&A with our artisans to learn more about them and what goes into the fabulous works they create!

Stacy Knop & Jamie Moore of Letters by Landmark

What do you create?
Letters by Landmark is a unique gift for yourself, family, or friend. We work with you to design a frame with a word/name using landmarks that are memorable to you.

What is your bestseller?
Last names keep us busy. Sometimes our customers order their own last/family name and others choose to order for a special gift.  Our MIZZOU and STL (Rams, Cardinals, Blues) frames are very popular, too.

What goes into making your Letters by Landmark creations?
Photography, photo editing, matting, and framing.

What do you enjoy most about selling your handmade goods?
When creating a frame, we are able to make each one very personal to each customer. We love getting to know our customers, like where they went on their first date or their favorite activities.

Do you take custom orders?
Of course! That's what we do best!

Who are you outside of the business?
We are friends from high school. We both are married with children. We have similar friends and love to shop, decorate and do family stuff together. Jamie is a Progress Monitoring Coach for Parkway School District and Stacy is a stay-at-home mom.

Why do you buy handmade?
We love the uniqueness and that it is one of a kind.
