Urban Mining is a women-owned business lead by Heather London and Susan Hartnett. Our love for authentic antique and vintage art and decor, along with our vision for a singular vintage shopping experience like no other, led us to create this unique shopping venue in the heart of Kansas City's urban core.
Urban Mining is located in a huge converted factory building in Kansas City, Missouri, at 3111 Gillham Road. We were the first business to pioneer the "First Friday Vintage Market" concept in the Kansas City Metro area. Our recent move and expansion makes us among the largest vintage shopping venues in the metro area. We emphasize quality, authenticity and value in our inventory - making beautiful vintage treasures accessible to everyone.
Our inventory is hand-selected and hand-created, repurposed, recycled and renewed by an amazing team of more than 40 creative entrepreneurs, and each event is brand new, with fresh inventory at every monthly sale. From our concept of recycled and reclaimed inventory to our recycled merchandise packaging and post-consumer recycling activities, to our unique business model that allows for decreased energy consumption throughout the month, we strive for environmental stewardship in everything we do.
We are open only one four-day weekend each month, on the weekend with the first Friday of each month - see our "HOURS & DATES" section for details. Come check out Kansas City's best first Friday weekend vintage market featuring unique, authentic decor, furniture, original art & more!
