Thanksgiving in Pittsburgh

Well, it's snowing in Pittsburgh so I'm reminded of past Thanksgivings. After a delicious meal of turkey, broccoli porridge and sweet potato pie, we headed over to the growing arts district in Lawrenceville. There seems to be something for everyone in the "zone". I stopped in a few stores that featured the art and design of local artists including fashion, hand printed cards and warm hand-knit hats. Some shops had a keen eye on the future, offering organic, fair trade products, while others featured reused furniture.

of course nothing beats the find in an out-of-the-way yard sale.
