We started in Wichita and opened Traditions Home in 1984. Our goal was to find great products and offer them at reasonable prices, and still stay in a neighborhood setting. Our first choice was the College Hill neighborhood of Wichita. It is a friendly place with schools, churches, businesses, restaurants, and homes. A few years later, we took our idea to Downtown Overland Park, Kansas. We renovated the historic Strang Carbarn (Overland Park’s oldest building), and we like to think, we have become a fixture.
We have been at it now for over 30 years. Stressless recliners are an important part of our business. So too is Stickley Furniture, Century, Lexington, Vanguard, Gat Creek, Nichols & Stone, and many other fine lines.
Over the years we have watched as homefurnishings are offered in a host of settings – barns, crates, barrels, hardware stores (pun intended) all in suburban malls and shopping centers – but we remain committed to Main Street and the neighborhoods where we grew up and where our families still live.
