In a time when it’s easier than ever to shop at big-box stores online, Stephanie Agne’s Prairie Village, Kansas, shop, Golden & Pine, wants its customers to carefully consider and then fall in love with the items they buy.

Agne stocks her shop with handmade artisan home goods that are not only beautiful but transparently and ethically manufactured using sustainable materials.

The shop is well-known for its exceptional textiles, throw pillows and handsome furniture, as well as its selection of artisan serveware, dishes, flatware and kitchen linens. Agne says that seeking out special kitchen and cooking items was a natural fit for her: “I was a dietitian before I opened the shop, so all things food-related are still a passion of mine,” she says.
