POP-IN: A LOOK AT DOWNTOWN’S PG&H TEN MONTHS IN
You know how time seems to fly the older you get? It feels like yesterday that PG&H opened its doors on a sleepy section of Smithfield St. Fast forward just over ten months and the downtown brick and mortar shop has found its groove, slinging well-made, locally produced goods from some of Pittsburgh’s favorite makers. What was once planned as a year long pop-up from partner’s Downtown Pittsburgh Partnership and Monmade, is still going strong signing on for another year at the location.
If you haven’t stopped in to the yet for a lunchtime or weekend browse around, you are missing out. On top of the tailored selection of small batch items like home goods, wall art, books and more, the shop also houses a full-service coffee counter from one of our favorite Oakland spot, Redhawk Coffee. Still need convincing? Take a look at our favorite new pieces to hit the shelves at PG&H.
Pottery by Reiko Yamamoto Studio. Love the mugs used to serve your coffee at The Vandal and The Bureau or the stunning platters at Fl.2? They’re made by local ceramicist Reiko Yamamoto, and you can snag your own (along with lots of Reiko’s other beautifully handcrafted pottery) at PG&H.
Redhawk Coffee’s second outpost. Whether you want to shop and sip or grab a great coffee to go, PG&H’s full service Redhawk Coffee outpost is an asset to downtown Pittsburgh’s coffee community. The Oakland cafe from an Espresso a Mano alum serves killer cortados, matcha lattes and sell their house roasted beans for your caffeine fix at home.
Cutting boards from KerfCase. You may have seen KerfCase’s cool wooden iPhone cases glued to ears around the city, but the local company also offers a line of cutting boards exclusively at PG&H. These plus some cheese and snacks from Chantal’s are all you’ll need for a lazy end-of-summer dinner party.
Plants & Pop-ups galore. If you missed PG&H’s latest houseplant pop-up with Perrico Plant Co., don’t worry — the shop now stocks their green babes on the regular. But there will be plenty more opportunities to snag one-of-a-kind goods from local makers that aren’t normally at the shop. Keep an eye on the events calendar and on Instagram for even more pop-ups at PG&H this fall.
Artwork from Pittsburgh’s most talented. Looking to build an art collection? There are plenty of talented artists right here in Pittsburgh, and you can discover your new favorite at PG&H. We love this collage piece from Stephen Knezovich, but there’s lots more to see in the store from Seth Ledonne, Dane Horvath and more.
