Kathryn Harvey

Kathryn Harvey envisioned World of Mirth as a vibrant haven amidst the
dull landscape of mainstream shopping. Here, customers delighted in
uncovering quirky treasures not found elsewhere. Drawn by Kathryn's warm demeanor, boundless creativity, and quick wit, visitors flocked to the
store. As her family blossomed, so did World of Mirth, evolving to offer
an eclectic array of toys for every age in Richmond, VA, and beyond.
Now, with the magic of online shopping, we bring joy to a broader
audience, from tiny tots to grown-ups alike!

We lovingly carry on that vision in honor of her and her family.

The Bryan and Kathryn Harvey Family Memorial Endowment was created by their friends and family to provide music, visual art and performing arts enrichment in the greater Richmond area. To learn more about the Harvey Family Memorial Endowment or to contribute to this fund, please go here.
