Paint Talks Episode 153 with Jenny Alexander

Nov 9, 2023

Jenny Alexander and her husband, Skip, own Ugly Glass & Co. in the Historic West Bottoms of Kansas City, Missouri. Jenny, a multi-passionate maker, opened UG & Co. in 2012 to give herself and other makers, and vintage pickers a space to sell in person year-round. Today UG & Co. hosts over 40 other small businesses inside its store at 1285 Hickory St; KCMO 64102. You can shop everything from snarky gifts to vintage records.

Jenny & Skip have been together for over 30 years. They have a daughter, a son & 3 rescues because the universe keeps giving her husband cats. Skip owns a shipping container modification business and taught Jenny how to plasma cut in 2015. First on shipping containers then on smaller metal projects like buckets or antique car doors.

When she is not working in her storefront or for her husband’s company, she enjoys painting on canvas, screen-printing, refinishing furniture, woodworking, making jewelry, and looking up at the clouds.

Upcoming Events: First Friday Weekends – First Full Weekend of each month
Monthly Fall Classes – Paint Inlay Wood Tray – Nov. 11, 2023
Small Business Saturday, Nov. 25, 2023 – Sales throughout the store as well as door prizes!

Fun Facts: pick which ones you like most
I once got a bead (pearl) stuck up my nose…I slept with it overnight too.
I set up toy lending libraries in several local school districts in my previous life as a technology/marketing coordinator for a local non-profit.
I once went to the state capital to speak in favor of a bill, it was traumatizing so I only remember the drive there and back.
