Anthony Michael, Kids In The & K.

What do these three things have in common?  Yes, they’re all fabulous and they all end with Hall!  However, our focus today isn’t on 80’s iconic movie stars or comedy television shows.  Instead, I’m writing about k. hall designs- 8416 Manchester Rd  63144.  Locally owned and operated by John Barr and Kelley Hall-Barr, k. hall designs manufactures aromatic bath, body and home care fragrance goods.  These products are not only sold locally, they are carried by major retailers like Anthropologie!  Their products smell amazing and are at a minimum 95% natural.  No fake pine scents here!  When a diffuser from k. hall is labeled “Tea”, it really smells like, well,  tea.  What a great concept!

k. hall designs products are all made in the USA, with many of them handmade, labeled and boxed here in St. Louis.  Hall-Barr chooses her scents wisely, picking those that are comfortable and familiar.  This translates into a line that transfixes you the minute you walk into their store.  As you move from one area to the next, you encounter objects arranged in a lovely tableau. On display are beautiful candles and textiles along with quirky items like miniature cast iron farm animals.   And yet, somehow, it all works!
