These Are The Things We Love for Spring

HOME editor Jessica Sinichak finds local gems you’ll obsess over.


Just Dishy
Feel even better about tackling your dirty dishes with the new recyclable, zero waste Solid Dish Soap by Lovett Sundries. Handcrafted in Wilkinsburg, the unscented soap is made from coconut oil, lye and castor oil.
Lovett Sundries, 761 Penn Ave., Wilkinsburg,
($14; refills $12)  


Feeling Catty
Even non-cat lovers will get a kick out of the new collection of stickers and magnets by Shop Emily M that combine Pittsburgh’s most notable idiosyncrasies (think inclines and parking chairs) with cute cat illustrations.
Shop Emily M. at Lawrenceville Market House, 4112 Butler St., Lawrenceville,
($4 – $7)  


Made to Shape(less)
Handcrafted out of cement and then colored using natural earth pigments, the Shapeless Jar is the perfect organizer for anyone looking to add a whimsical, yet practical, piece of art to their home or office.
Storehouse Neutral at Lawrenceville Market House, 4112 Butler St., Lawrenceville,
($22 each) 


Not Your Typical Blanket
Cold at your desk? Consider a chic blanket jacket by Otto Finn. The one-of-a-kind jackets (all named after the sustainable fashion brand’s heroines, including Billie Holiday) are made from vintage blankets or second-market fabrics. Otto Finn offers in-stock as well as made-to-order jackets.
Otto Finn, 4514 Plummer St., Lawrenceville,
