Be Made, Inc. is run by a creative and imaginative mother daughter duo.

Jordan, Sue’s daughter, is a graphic designer and loves the challenge each new day brings at Be Made. What other place can you design, create, showcase, and sell so many items you love? Sue has a strong head for the business side of things, yet balances this with creativity and new ideas (that you can count on loving!). She raised her family on a farm in Kansas. With this duo…anything is possible, and they incorporate their ideas and values into each product at Be Made, Inc.

Luckily for their shoppers, these two women share a love for anything vintage, quirky, and well designed. The products you’ll find in their store are nothing short of un-ordinary, rustic, and unique!

Being avid shoppers themselves, Jordan and Sue understand the desire for great variety. They have made it their continuing goal to offer products in every category…including accessories, stationery, bath and body essentials, kitchen supplies, home décor, kids, and so much more. There truly is something for everyone! It’s safe to say that you will never leave empty handed! Plus, new products are consistently being added day by day.

Be Made, Inc. can be found in the historic downtown Hays, Kansas, in the “Chestnut Street District”. The seasonal changes make each time of year a beautiful one in this beautiful district of Hays.

The duo said it was love at first sight with the historic building where their shop is located. It dates back to 1911, and after gutting it they were able to bring it back to its beautiful beginnings. It features tin metal ornate ceilings, wood and hand layered tile floors, exposed red brick walls, and an upstairs studio for all their creating and designing needs. Many of the store’s products are their very own, ranging from upcycling and recycling, to graphic design work, to sewing, and wood/metal working (we told you they were a creative and imaginative duo!).

They love running their shop along with the much appreciated help of Sue’s sister and Jordan’s aunt!

This store is truly one of a kind. Its eye catching from the outside, and breath taking from the inside. Please come by and see it for yourself!

  • I love this store! I always find cool things I can use for gifts and such. I do think that their prices are a little too high and should come down a little bit if they want more people to purchase their goods. Other than that, I have always had a great experience.
  • Great place to find unique gifts of all kinds, love their "bath salt bar" where you can make your own little containers or pouches of scented bath salts, very cute 😊
