Are you eager to start your holiday shopping but want to expand your choices beyond big box stores and mass retailers? These Pittsburgh area boutiques offer clothing, jewelry, gifts and home goods you may not find anywhere else.
Von Walter & Funk
You can easily spend an hour or two browsing the eclectic mix of products at Lawrenceville’s Von Walter & Funk. Named after the co-owners’ beloved grandparents, the boutique sells luxury home goods, décor, art and antiques. You’ll also find a selection of brand new items with a vintage look. The owners make regular buying trips to Paris and London to stock their store with unusual finds. Inventory can change from week to week, so you’ll want to plan more than one trip to Von Walter & Funk.
Boutique La Passerelle
Fortunately, you don’t have to be a world traveler to enjoy fashions from other countries. The owners of Boutique La Passerelle keep their Pittsburgh customers’ tastes in mind when they search for the latest women’s clothing trends in Portugal and France.
If you like a feminine, classic style, you’ll love the clothes they find in France. The clothing from Portugal features brighter colors and styles we don’t usually see in the U.S. Since Boutique La Passerelle only sells one size of every style, you’re less likely to run into another woman wearing the same thing.
South Side and Lawrenceville
Whiskey Moon offers a mix of clothing, jewelry, accessories, beauty products, home goods and gifts in two convenient locations. The mother/daughter duo that owns the boutiques designed their shops for “wanderers, dreamers and mystics.” In addition to selling the latest clothing trends and accessories, the boutique offers its own handmade line of body products, candles and ritual kits. If you’re looking for one-of-a-kind gifts this holiday season, be sure to stop by Whiskey Moon.
Many boutiques forget about men, preferring to focus on women’s fashions instead but not Moda. The store features styles from the premier menswear lines, including Diesel, Prada and Paul Smith. In addition to classic styles, you’ll also find unique clothing if you pay a visit to the second floor and casual fashions on the third floor.
Bella Sophia Moda Boutique
You don’t have to travel downtown or to Lawrenceville to find the latest women’s fashion trends. Located in Mt. Lebanon, the Bella Sophia Moda Boutique offers clothing, sleepwear, shoes, handbags and the perfect accessories to complete your outfit. You’ll also find a selection of candles, soaps and other items that are ideal for gift giving.
