Emily Slagel is the force behind Mid-Atlantic Mercantile, a boutique featuring high quality goods located on Butler Street in the heart of Lawrenceville. Before you gripe about price tags, listen to her as she breaks down the cost of creating and distributing clothing. This chat will make you re-think those H&M purchases.
A Pittsburgh area native, Emily studied at Savannah College of Art and Design with the idea of continuing on to New York City. Life brought her to Pittsburgh and with a lot of work and the support from those close to her, she has built a beautiful spot for buying very beautiful things. For those that don't live close, keep an eye out for an online store in the future!
Emily is a joy to chat with and an inspiration for others trying to build their own business. Enjoy!
