January 19: KoolKat Designs

KoolKat Designs has had its home on Washington Road in Mt Lebanon for the past 5 years, giving local artists and crafters a home where we can sell our wares. Owner and founder Kate McGrady started KoolKat as a consignment store for local jewelry artists; today it is a gorgeous collection of locally hand-crafted jewelry, purses, scarves, stationary, and other original art.

Interestingly enough, most of the artists represented at KoolKat are women, making it one of my very favorite places to buy and sell my wares. KoolKat began selling bel monili items in October 2011, after a meeting with Paula Nettleship. I was honored to be added as an artist at this prestigious location, and I am looking forward to a long and rewarding relationship with Kate, Paula, and the other artists at KoolKat

Their model is simple: bring in local artists and sell quality, handmade wares. You'll be impressed as soon as you walk in the door; it's a virtual wonderland of handmade goodness. A few of the artists you'll find at KoolKat are bel monili by l.marlanedesigns2C, WakulaWorks, 19 Moons, On the Rocks, Xmittens, Red Robot Creative, Studio Wagle, Huffalo, and many, many more!

The next time you are in the Mt. Lebanon area, make sure you stop by at KoolKat Designs, 691 Washington Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15228. Follow them on Facebook to keep up on the latest news and event announcements!
