Getting Legitimate 

Duncan Busser just might make it in flyover country. Tired of the East Coast, the former Philadelphian decided to take his RV for a spin around middle America in search of something new. Visiting his brother in Kansas City, Busser quickly fell for this town's Midwestern charm. Brusser is bringing his years of event- and party-planning experience to bear on his new venture, Illegitimate Art and Design (3608 Main). He hopes that the store will help revitalize the heart of the city. "I'm amazed at this location and what's possible," he says. "I'm going to do whatever I can to market this area and get people down here."Open since December 7, Illegitimate consists of two spacious rooms that house a collection of classic toys, random gadgets, vintage gifts, items on consignment from locals and an array of moderately priced art. "I'll only sell art I can buy," Busser says, noting that prices will usually range between $50 and $100. The inventory includes such gems as a pack of Schlitz beer napkins, a set of four miniature coffeepots and an old Chinese checkers board. Store hours are noon to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. For details, call 816-561-0994. Illegitimate Art and Design
Wednesdays-Sundays, 12-8 p.m., 2008
