The first Kirkwood Farmers' Market Apple Festival will celebrate the fruit with cooking demonstrations, music and tons of samples. Fun kicks off at 8 a.m.
Hardware Gallery has been on New Ballas for just over a year after spending three years in Kirkwood.
Not sensing an improvement in the economy that would give reason for their decorative hardware store to stay in business, Mike and Beth Will are closing Hardware Gallery in Creve Coeur Friday. The shop opened on New Ballas Road in May of 2011 after being in Kirkwood for three years. The goal of the store was to cater to shoppers who would otherwise need to go to Chicago or Atlanta to find merchandise. "I don't see any improvement in the economy," Mike Will said in a brief phone interview Thursday afternoon. While home sales in the area are picking up in general, as the St. Louis Post-Dispatch noted recently, new home construction has been slow. The paper reports "St. Louis builders are on pace to complete about 3,500 homes this year, …

Seeds of Happiness released a special back-to-school keepsake that is flying out of the business' Kirkwood factory.
Mark Borella believes every kid and teacher should start their school year off with a smile, and if there's one thing Borella knows how to do, it's how to get people to smile. The Seeds of Happiness owner wasn't planning on releasing a back-to-school product, but he thought he'd throw an apple seed creation in the Kirkwood factory kiln for kicks. "I did a test and when they came out of the kiln, I decided to make a few more, then bam, we started getting orders from all over the country," Borella said. The Kirkwood sculptor and smile-giver is now making his second round of apple seed keepsakes. Borella is going to release more speciality seeds to coordinate with the holidays: pumpkin seeds, snowmen and Santas. He also plans to create …
