Holiday Shopping Guide to Pittsburgh


The holiday season is officially here and I could not be more excited. This is my absolute favorite time of year and I look forward to it for months. This year I thought it would be fun to put together a little shopping guide of local businesses where you can do your holiday shopping. Shopping local and supporting mom and pop businesses is very important to me. I’ve seen first-hand the hard work that goes into running your own business and it is not easy. I love supporting people who live in my community because I know my money is going to someone who is trying to better their neighborhoods, put their kids through college and give back to the people that have invested in them.
