This is an exciting time to be living in Pittsburgh. The city is experiencing what some have referred to as a renaissance. Powerhouses like Uber, Google, and ModCloth are based right in our back yard; major movies and television shows are being filmed here; even the city's fashion scene is on the rise, with cool Boutiques and Specialty Stores popping up left and right. Recently, I, (with the help of some Facebook friends), compiled a list of the top under-the-radar places to shop in Pittsburgh.
