Expecting and welcoming a new baby is not only an exciting time for the whole family… but it can also be an overwhelming time. With so many new emotions and searching for answers in so many places, it can be hard to quickly and easily find the resources you need. To help, we have created the 2022 Newborn and New Moms Guide. In this guide, we are excited to share a number of our favorite local resources for new & expecting moms. Be sure to check it out, learn more about these amazing local businesses, and discover all that they have to offer! Let’s be honest – this guide is a fantastic resource for parents of children at all ages.
Thank you to our amazing guide sponsors, Just Between Friends and Sabika Jewelry.
At Just Between Friends we know it can be so expensive to buy all the things your growing family needs. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality or spend all your time at garage sales and running store to store to find deals so your kids can look good. We have helped local families save thousands of dollars, and we can help you, too. We believe everyone deserves to feel good about providing well for their kids. That’s why we created Just Between Friends – a one-stop shopping experience that happens in the fall & spring every year!
Kelly Robie organizes the Just Between Friends pop up events, and as a mom of 6 kids, she understands that raising a family is expensive! Shopping retail means hours in a mall or running store to store with bored, crying kids – spending way more than you planned. Garage sales or social media buying can be disappointing and frustrating when items or connections aren’t what you hoped they’d be. Shopping the Just Between Friends pop up sales will help you save hundreds of dollars on new and gently-used clothes, toys, shoes, books and gear for infants to teens, plus maternity – all in one place. Items are inspected for quality and safety which means great items at huge savings. You get stylish, confident, good-looking kids while saving money and time! Now THAT’S smart!
Best of all, you can SELL your kids’ outgrown items at the sales too! If you’ve tried selling all those outgrown items on social media or spending your whole weekend sitting outside to host a less-than-amazing yard sale, you know there’s got to be a better way. Families who sell with Just Between Friends earn more and sell more – all in one place, all at one time. Plus, you’ll feel warm and fuzzy knowing you are helping so many local families who love finding great deals for their kids at the JBF sale! Families helping families is at the heart of all we do. Come join us!

How We Started
For years, owner Patti Staley and her daughters had the opportunity to travel throughout the country. Patti usually returned from her travels with one-of-a-kind gifts she hadn’t been able to find in her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After returning from one trip to Los Angeles with a particularly stunning piece of hand-made jewelry and a few designer outfits for her grandchildren, Patti had the idea that she could share the treasures from her shopping expeditions by starting a boutique of her own. Patti wanted to create a cozy atmosphere in which customers could discover unique items that would enhance the beauty of all areas of their home, thus, The Picket Fence was born. Patti and her daughters have gathered an eclectic collection of quality merchandise.
What We Do
The Picket Fence is a small boutique offering you personal assistance when you’re looking for that special something for a friend, a child, or even yourself. We also carry small to well known designers of women’s clothing and accessories. Is your child or a niece, nephew, or grandchild having a birthday? We carry a number of distinctive toys that are not widely available, so you are sure find something special that reflects each child’s unique personality. The Picket Fence offers an extensive collection of designer children’s clothing – both in-vogue and classic. The Picket Fence also has gifts for you; one-of-a-kind jewelry, clothing, as well as an assortment of colorful household items that are designed for form and function.

Salty Soothers & Designs was first founded by a Pittsburgh mom holding a fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation by hand making baby teethers and pacifier clips customized with baby names. Once her fundraising goal was met, the demand for the personalized baby items continued to grow and so Salty Soothers & Designs was officially born.
From there, they have added new items based on customer requests, started selling their teethers and paci clips in a local gift shop, and collaborated with other local small businesses to offer a wider selection of personalized and handcrafted gifts. Salty Soothers & Designs loves to connect with each of their customers to ensure their customized designs are exactly as expected.
A portion of the proceeds are still given to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation with the hope that one day a cure will be found.
