New pop-up store in Sewickley offers an eclectic mix of vintage, antiques, collectibles, and decorative accessories that are priced to sell.
Judy Bailey had an idea to take a vacant storefront and put it to good use, turning years of stored treasures into Sewickley’s newest pop up store, The Attic. Bailey is the owner of Soho, located right next door, and the former Bailey & Bailey boutique. She and friend Natasha Green decided to clear out some of the items they have collected or held onto over the years, and put them up for sale. “We have such a conglomeration of things,” Bailey said. Green described the store as an attic and garage sale in a shop, hence the name “The Attic.” Everything is priced to sell, she said. The store carries a hodgepodge of vintage, antiques and collectibles. Items range from a bird house and a brass bed to children's items and window panels. Bailey …

Practically everything is on sale at 436 Beaver St., Sewickley, where owners say March 24 will be the last official day.
After nearly 40 years in the community, Cheers Gifts, Antiques and Interiors will close when the owners officially retire in March. Tom and Jeanne DeFazio said they had been talking for awhile about closing the store at 436 Beaver St. and came close to it last fall, but the DeFazios said they believed the town needed as much business as possible and decided to stick around. “Now is the right time for us,” the store owners said. “The town is looking great with many new shops and restaurants, and it’s time for us to relax, maybe travel a little and enjoy our grandson, Evan, plus by this summer, he will be a 'big brother' when his mother delivers our second grandchild.” Jeanne DeFazio has undergone treatment for amyloidosis, a rare disease. …

Pamela Squires of Sewickley fashions signature pieces that fit your unique style or personality.
Pamela Squires’ Sewickley studio is quite like a treasure chest. Everywhere you look there are overflowing charms, chains, bits and beads just waiting to be transformed. It is like being inside a jewel box. Pearls are waiting to be strung, shiny new baubles are spilling out of their holders, glittering gemstones, and the dull sheen of antique treasures all overtake the senses at the first glimpse of the brightly light space. It is organized chaos -- in a good way. The treasures sit in a tiny neat brick home on the corner of Beaver and Grimes streets in Sewickley, at the corner of the Lighthouse Baptist Church parking lot. Squires, the maker of the magic, is a little dynamo. Squires had to step off the corporate ladder in 2004 due to a …
