This beautifully curated Mount Washington shop features a variety of items, all created by local makers. The masterminds behind the store, Kelly Sanders and Monica Yope, are members of Pittsburgh’s creative community. The women met at a local craft show and shared the sentiment that it would be wonderful to have a more permanent place where people could purchase the unique items for sale at these shows.

From this idea, love, Pittsburgh was born.

Kelly describes love, Pittsburgh as a gift shop for “locals and tourists alike.”

“There’s like crazy Pittsburgh pride, which is awesome,” said Kelly.

“Oh my god this shop was needed here,” a woman exclaimed as she entered love, Pittsburgh. “Finally!”
