Turning an old warehouse into a gorgeous boutique was the dream of the mother-daughter team who made No.14. That, and to fill it up with trendy, flawless fashion and jewelry.

Although it's small, it's very impressive. The girls who work there, along with the owner, are super sweet and helpful...

The design throughout the store is a beautiful shabby chic that enhances the items on display.

This store is another one of the wonderful independently owned shops that make Lawrenceville a must visit for out of towners, as well as Pittsburgh shoppers.

“...Plus, the way the girls update the store's social media rocks. (Buying stuff via text after seeing it on Snapchat is genius)! Cutest little shop in Lawrenceville!” - Yelp Review
