Sparkt My Interest

Local or Die!

Curated with exclusively local products, Love, Pittsburgh Shop is Starting Something Good by showcasing and supporting Pittsburgh's creative scene.

Tucked away on a perfect Mt. Washington street in all its colorful glory sits Love, Pittsburgh Shop. Founded by Kelly and Monica, the space (as well as their second location downtown) supports and sells items created by Pittsburgh-based artists, makers, and foodies (shout out Steel City Salts, one of our recent interviewees).

And their drool-worthy selection outpaces, in my opinion, the chaos-fueled Etsy platform that often leaves sellers in the dark when they encounter an issue. Love, Pittsburgh Shop ditches the middle-man and works directly with artists, creating a happier experience for everyone.

Looking for a last minute gift? Pick up a box of Pittsburgh-scented candles (like "The Cookie Table" and "The Point"), but everything in the shop will have you wondering if you should keep it for yourself instead. Tip: just buy two.

Check out the interview for some gift-spiration and an inside-look at just how local Love, Pittsburgh Shop is!
