Our Story

Penhollows Shadyside opened its doors in October 2007 as a locally owned and operated shop for customers with an eye for design and an interest in books – new and rare.

Visitors to Penhollows will discover 1,100 comfortable square feet of design ideas for the home and impactful gifts for occassions big and small. Tin ceilings, hardwood floors, an inviting staff, and, of course, comfortable furniture make it an excellent place to visit – and stay a while.

The Penhollows ever-evolving merchandise collection combines new and vintage items to reflect a worldly style and, at the same time, celebrates the achievements of local artists and writers by featuring their works.
