I guess dreams do come true!
Last night I read the words "pop up shop" and "Millvale" in the same sentence.
I have teamed up with some of my favorite Pittsburgh businesses, as well as picking up a few of my personal favorite items. I have over a dozen items to give away... and one lucky person is going to win them all!
Pittsburgh's favorite biscuit popup - Wise County Biscuits - have arranged a special holiday breakfast menu. They are officially taking orders with pickup starting on Friday, December 15th.
As this is a "Pittsburgh Holiday Guide," every single item on this list was either made in Pittsburgh, or specifically relates to the city (or both!) I provided links for online ordering, but many of these items can be found in different shops across the city.
In this digital world, every business should have connections with local photographers who have their finger on the pulse of social media
Alphabet City, which opened on the 14th of January, 2017, is a bookshop, restaurant, and performance space. The bookshop is curated by the City of Asylum, and features the largest collection of work produced by exiled writers in the world. The restaurant is a New York style wine and cheese bar, but with affordable prices (I shouldn't need to say much more).
There are SO many marvelous shops and artists Pittsburgh. How could I ever fit them all into one post? Well, I can't.... but I'm going to try! Here is a list of shops that will help you find holiday gifts in Pittsburgh this year!
When the folks at JORD Watches reached out to me, I saw an opportunity. A beautiful watch - such as the ones JORD makes - can really enhance a photo. I'm using this JORD collaboration to share some of my favorite Instagram tips and tricks.
The real story behind this post: Grant and I were tipsy, impassioned by our love of Mixtape, and started writing the follow list on my phone..... while still in the bar. It took us under 2 mins to come up with everyone below.
The shop is delightful! Even if you aren't buying anything (good luck with that!), just walking around will fill you with cheer! Spanning two rooms, The Farmer's Daughters is filled with tubs and tubs of fragrant flowers. They also have a ton unique trinkets and jewelry that you won't find elsewhere (see: enamel pins in the shape of a negroni).
