Whether you’re against the idea of spending today shopping or are so efficient that you’re already done (or close to it), the post-Thanksgiving doldrums are bound to hit. Luckily, there's more going on in Pittsburgh today than sales at stores. We rounded up this list of 15 things you can do today that doesn't include the mall or eating leftovers.
For those of you ISO deals (or an escape from your family), TribLive pulled together a list of stores open for Black Friday. As one shopper in Monroeville told WTAE on Thanksgiving, "You can eat whenever you want, but the deals only last for one day." OK, sure. A brighter note: The Salvation Army's red kettles are back for the holiday season, and it's hopeful today brings generous shoppers.
For communities and churches across the region, Thanksgiving brought a day of giving — ensuring that no one had to eat alone. Months of planning went into the free dinners, TribLive reported. One volunteer said: “It's good to help people less fortunate than we are. It's good to give back ... We have to be truly grateful. It's always good to give other people a helping hand.”
One-hundred regional artists will bring handmade wares to the "I Made It! Market," so you can check off everybody of your shopping list. There's also hands-on crafting along with a kids shop on Sunday. The event will be held inside the former Office Depot space beside Michael's Craft Store at the Waterfront.
Where: Former Office Depot at 630 Waterfront Drive East (Homestead)
When: November 24, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. to November 26, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.
