St. Louis husband-and-wife team John and Kelley Barr have opened a second store on Maryland Plaza in the Central West End. The new pop-up shop, so-called because of its temporary nature, stocks candles, diffusers, soaps and various bath and body products, as well as an assortment of curiosities, home accessories and new and antique furniture. The store will operate in the Maryland Plaza location at least through December 2012.
The Barrs own another shop on Manchester Avenue in Brentwood, where they also hand-craft, label and box apothecary marketed under brand names K. Hall Designs, Simpatico and Barr-Co. With packaging styled to recreate the feeling of old-fashioned tonics, tinctures and elixirs, the new Barr-Co. collection features reusable vessels such as glass milk bottles, parfait glassware, muslin bags and tinware. Barr-Co. products are available at Anthropologie stores nationwide.
