KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Greater Kansas City Home Show brought together tens of thousands of people to Downtown Kansas City looking for design tips for Spring. Organizers said more than 25,000 people attended the show's 67th anniversary, the biggest crowd since the housing market crash in 2007.

Brian and Kari Rawley attended the show and said they were inspired by the local designers.

"Having a handicapped child. We really have to think of the layout of our house and so they have some fabulous ideas for one level living," said Kari Rawley.

Some of the people at Bartle Hall even traveled states away to attend the show. Alice and Millie Bush traveled from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They were excited to see Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV's "Fixer Upper."

"I found Chip and Joanna Gaines on TV and got addicted to the show. We are just hoping to get some new ideas," said the Bush family.

The Gaines family will have their furniture available this summer at Restoration Emporium in the West Bottoms.
