Shop Local: Where to buy made in Pittsburgh masks online

Need to pick up a new face mask? Want to support a local business? Here is a list of all of the local businesses that are making and selling face masks.

You could say that the face mask is the fashion accessory of the summer and it looks like we’ll be wearing them for a while.

After reading our earlier story about volunteers making face masks we’ve had several folks ask where they can buy a mask from local businesses. Here is a list of local businesses that are making masks right here in Western Pennsylvania. All of these masks are available for purchase online.

From plain to fancy to see-through to made by Mike Tomlin’s wife, you should have no problem finding a locally-made mask that suits you.
