Pittstop readers, grab your wallets! We’re pointing you in the direction of the best places to shop for women and men’s clothing and activewear, jewelry and accessories, toys and trinkets, home decor and houseware and everything in between. Whether you are shopping for presents or treating yourself, these stores will not disappoint.
Threads on Carson
Here at Pittstop, we’re not biased toward girly things (although we do enjoy them). We know men have shopping needs too, so that’s why we chose to spotlight Threads on Carson. This male boutique has the coolest vibes with a streetwear inspiration. Their product mixed with their sleek in-store design brings urban to a whole new level. They feature national products along with local designers such as Daily Bread, G Shock, Herschel Supply and more. Ladies, pick up your mans kicks and baseball fitteds here!

Vintage Grace Boutique
Opening the door to Vintage Grace is like stepping into every woman’s shopping fantasy. In addition to adorable and affordable clothing and handcrafted customizable jewelry, shoppers can also get manicures and pedicures at the salon located inside the boutique! We wanted to buy wine glasses and coffee mugs for everyone we know, and we did not leave empty handed…

>Open Monday-Friday 10-7; Saturday & Sunday 10-5
If you’re tired of buying a tie for your dad and a coffee mug for your mom for every holiday, check out Barberry Handmade for unique and meaningful gift ideas. Everything in the store is handmade, from clothing and accessories to toys and trinkets. Every item, handcrafted by artisans from around the world, has a story behind it. Barberry Handmade is the perfect place to find a gift for even the most difficult person on your list. Pick out a murano glass necklace for mom or make-your-own leather hip flask case for dad. Good luck trying to walk out of there without at least purchasing a gourmet handmade chocolate bar (we recommend the Pretzel + Cherry).

On-the-go fashionistas, I think we just found your new favorite store! The sisters who own Ragged Row focus on stocking the boutique with “stylish yet wearable” apparel, including tons of denim and activewear. We could totally see ourselves living in their leggings and adorable Pittsburgh apparel. Women and men can shop online or at Ragged Row’s Sewickley and Bakery Square locations.

No. 14 is exactly what every girl wants her Instagram grid to look like. You’ll feel like you stepped into a high-end New York City shop from the minute you open the door. This boutique has adorable pieces that are well worth the investment. You won’t be able to get enough of the quirky fixtures. They’ve thought of everything, including using painted chairs as clothing racks. We might just start a craft project for our own homes… With thoughtful designs along with a bright and chic atmosphere, visiting No. 14 will make your weekend a little bit better.
