brookside real estate agent: Bored in Brookside? Get Out and Try Something New! - 02/13/19 01:37 PM
You've heard of the dog days of summer...to me, this time of year is the worst!  No holidays, lots of long gray days and recently, almost constant ice, slush and snow.  (Although, I do enjoy a soft, several inches snowfall !)

brookside real estate agent: Kansas City's Sheehan's Irish Imports Closing June 30 - 06/10/18 09:47 AM

 
After 33 years of serving Kansas City residents, Sheehan's Irish Imports is closing at the end of the month.  It's current location is on the border of Brookside and Waldo, at 410 E Gregory.  
Sheehan's Irish Imports is one of those classic, family owned small businesses.  Daughter Katy Sheehan told me her mother Peggy started selling Irish products as a hobby out of her home in 1985. As the business grew, Pryde's offered her a space in the corner of their building in Westport. The next move was to a larger, free standing store at 1412 Westport Road, then a final move … (2 comments)
