Shop Local, Pittsburgh: Lawrenceville

With Small Business Saturday on the horizon, TABLE Magazine encourages you to shop local not just on the upcoming holiday but year-round. The small businesses owned by our neighbors do more than sell goods and services. They add vibrant life to our neighborhoods and to our entire region. Their presence brings our Main Streets alive, and the long-lasting, personal relationships they foster create a culture of positivity and belonging. To get you started on your local shopping adventure, check out these 9 Lawrenceville businesses.
