On the First Day of Christmas, My Pittsburgh Love Gave to Me …
In the tradition of the 12 Days of Christmas, we are featuring a different Pittsburgh-centric product each day to help you shop local.
Does the perfect gift exist? Yes, if we’re talking about the sparkling geode vessels by Tal & Bert, which recently opened a brick-and-mortar mercantile store in Dormont. Owners Ray and Val Talbert — who turned their recreational mining hobby into a booming business — and their team hand pour each concrete planter, using a hollow breakage in the design to create a geode from natural stone they mine themselves. Giving it some extra glitter is a line of liquid gold edging the geode area. The functional vessels can be used to hold air plants, succulents, candles or any other small items that need a stylish home.
