Typhoon Lighting especially specializes in everything light related: repair services, refurbished antique lighting fixtures, and classic and contemporary new designs to lustrously illuminate any roost. The company's domestic fixtures include pendants, chandeliers, sconces, and lamps that, when nicely light-bulbed, scare ghosts and shed light on ping-pong balls' hidden hideaways (prices vary, depending on limited items and specialty lines). Luxurious lampshades are available to enhance any immodest bare bulb ($30 to $50 on average). The radiant retailer also stocks a wide selection of accessories, including finials and hard-to-find antique bulbs (average $50–$200). If you already have an item that needs fixing or you would like to have a unit customized or embellished with a handmade lampshade, Typhoon's friendly, experienced staff is also eager to lend a hand ($70/hour). All repair and fabrication services are done in-house by highly skilled craftspeople, ensuring special attention and glowing service.
Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
White delivery vans scrawled with purple and teal lettering roll into driveways twice a week, hauling dirty clothes away and returning them clean and fresh. The magic happens at Four Seasons's Squirrel Hill headquarters, where a second-generation owner helms an array of dry and water-based cleaning services. He and his cleaning team inspect each piece to single out stains before subjecting them to a dry-cleaning machine with organic-based fluid and other eco-friendly techniques. During their specialty Execu-Shirt regimen, techs hand-scrub collars and cuffs, replace missing buttons, and quiz them on Fortune 500 companies before ironing and folding or hanging them. They also tailor ripped seams and sagging hemlines, store furs in a temperature-controlled vault, and preserve wedding gowns with a museum-style, acid-free protection process.
The Jewish Community Center of Pittsburgh pursues its mission of upholding an exemplary, thriving, and engaged community rooted in Jewish values.

The technicians at Rewind Memories perform all of their digitization services in-house, ensuring that a qualified expert is always operating the advanced equipment involved in each job. They use high-resolution scanners and digital image-correction and enhancement (ICE) technology to preserve photos and negatives, and they convert the following formats into accessible, long-lasting DVDs: VHS, VHS-C, Mini-DV, Digital8, BetaMAX, Hi8, and 8mm, 16mm, and Super8 film. They also create music-filled slideshows for weddings and other events, and they restore old photographs by removing scratches and dust. Because each job can take several weeks to complete, the company sends email updates.
Rewind Memories provides other valuable services, too. The crew offers hands-on tutorials on how to edit tapes or modify images with photo software, and CEO and president Adam Kunes also directs The Call to Serve, a nonprofit organization that helps college-aged adults discover the power of public service.
