This past week I stopped by the Niche Handcrafted Boutique located on Dorseyville Road in Fox Chapel. This adorably cozy space is filled to the brim with curated jewelry, art, and beauty products. And while all of the items are wonderfully charming on the surface, what makes this shop truly special is the dedication to sourcing products from regional artists and sharing their creations with the community.
Walking into the shop, shoppers are greeted by the kind embrace and infectious smile of owner and artist, Alison Saville. Alison uses her keen eye to create a shopping space that is both warm and welcoming, with a touch of vintage flare. The crown jewel of the entrance is the retro pharmaceutical shelf labeled "health and beauty aids" that captures the whimsical and nostalgic spirit of Niche and is filled with beautifully scented soaps and bath products.
In terms of the variety of items for sale, shoppers can find sterling silver and gold plated jewelry featuring semi-precious stones and detailed chain work. Handmade soaps, purses, quilts, and macrame (made by yours truly) also adorn every corner of Niche- making it a wonderland for curious shoppers on the hunt for a piece of art that is one of a kind.
Niche Handcrafted Boutique's doors are open Wednesday through Sunday and Alison is always there to lend a helping hand in finding the perfect item for any customer. Stop in the soon and support local artists while finding unique gifts that are sure to wow.
