About us

Hi. My name is Cassie and I am the Queen of *Whim, and this is my husband, David, my Prince Charming. We opened our store at Summit Fair in October 2009 as a Life is good® Geniune Neighborhood Shoppe. Back then it was called Jake's Summit.

As our store evolved, we adapted to our customer's needs and expanded our product mix to include a much bigger variety of fun gift items. We re-named the store *Whim Gift Boutique in the summer of 2011 to reflect our new vibe.

David and I live here in Lee's Summit, just a few minutes from the store, with our beloved poodles, Roxy, Bliss and True. When I'm not at *Whim, chances are I am training or competing with the dogs in the sport of dog agility. We have three grown children with spouses and one perfectly adorable grandson.

When I buy for merchandise for the store, I try to find interesting things that I would be excited to give to my own friends and family. I hope you like what I've chosen.
