There is a special value to an item that is made by hand. No two humans are exactly alike, and similarly, no two handmade items are exactly alike. Variations in color, shading, texture, shape and grain are inherent in a handmade item. So this means that every handmade item you purchase is also one-of-a-kind.
God created humans in his likeness. He is the Ultimate Creator! Genesis 1:26 says, "Then God said, Let us make humandkind in our image, according to our likeness;" If we are made to be like Him, then we, too, share a creative trait. At Maker Mercantile, we celebrate that! We value the creative force in those who dream of things that don't exist, and then make them come alive.
Our shop showcases a wide variety of creative handiwork including pottery, photography, jewelry, uniquely designed home decor, art work and apparel.
Maker Mercantile is housed in a renovated church located in the historic downtown of Medicine Lodge, Kansas. We hope the Great Creator is pleased that we are using the old church to showcase human creativity.
