If you frequent Shadyside or Squirrel Hill, you’re familiar with the beautiful boutique that is Glassworks Pittsburgh. A purveyor of chic and modern table top finds, Glassworks offers a plethora of gift ideas and treat-yo-self splurges. From fine china, tableware accessories, and stemware to every day dinnerware and serving pieces, there’s something for every occasion and style, making it an excellent option for wedding registries! If you’re looking for some unique pieces to start your new life together, here are 6 reasons why Glassworks is THE place to shop!
Shopping small and local is cool.
Forget Target, Macy’s, and Bed, Bath, & Beyond. Hit up your neighborhood mom and pop shop instead. When you shop small, you support an entrepreneur and their dream and help to keep a neighborhood vibrant. Your support means more to them than you probably realize. It’s the reason you’ll be treated like a friend instead of “customer.”
You’ll see some familiar names.
Oneida, Missoni, Reidel, MacKenzie Childs, Michael Aram, Vietri, Baccarat, Nambe, Mariposa, William Yeoward. These are just a few of the recognizable brands you’ll find at Glassworks. In fact, they carry many of the same lines that you’ll find in your favorite national department store. While the store itself may be boutique and your shopping experience customized, you won’t have any trouble finding the household names you know and love.
You’ll find lots of unique items.
A wedding and a marriage are worth celebrating with something extra special. I love when couples splurge for that one item that will remind them of their big day, and guests love giving memorable gifts too. Whether it’s an engraved sterling silver frame, a gold-rimmed ruffle crystal cake stand, or a keepsake platter customized with your names and wedding date, there are lots of unique pieces that make for an unforgettable gift.
It’s where classic style meets the modern couple.
Let’s face it. Lifestyles are becoming more casual and fluid. Not too many people still register for silver flatware and bone china. But if that is your thing, Glassworks has it! Fancy place settings and crystal champagne flutes are just some of the higher end items they carry. On the other hand, if you’re more of the everyday couple, Glassworks has plenty for you too. This shop is on the forefront of trends and modern day living, while also still offering the timeless pieces that will never go out of style
It’s convenient for you and your gift-givers.
With two locations – Walnut Street in Shadyside and Forbes Avenue in Squirrel Hill – it’s easy to get to a Glassworks no matter what side of town you live on.
