KC Souvenirs, Kansas City
Nice collection of Kansas City products - barbecue products, books, posters and paintings, etc. Not a junky t-shirt and trinket shop. Central location in the Crown Center Shops next to the Westin Crown Center Hotel.
What to buy: You can't leave town without picking up some barbecue sauce from Gates or Arthur Bryant or some of the other great local eateries (not KC Masterpiece - you can buy that anywhere.) If they have any in stock buy a copy of "The Kansas City Suite" a great jazz recording by saxophonist Doug Talley and his quartet. If you like to pick up art when you travel, you'll find some nice water colors of the Country Club Plaza.
