Little Italy's big feast

After traveling to the real Italy, Cleveland's Little Italy is of no comparison, but every year they throw a "Feast of the Assumption" four-day street fair. I was a first-timer, and was surprised to see the crowds of people filling the streets. My friend and I checked out a vintage shop located in an old building, called Heartstrings. I wasn't a fan of the prices ($98 for a braided mesh headband??), but there sure was a ton of items to browse through, including jewelry, kitchenware, clothing and other quirky finds.

Cowboy boot salt & pepper shakers... yes please!

We finished the night off with Tiramisu from one of Little Italy's best restaurants and found our way through the crowd to meet up with some friends. It wasn't Italy, but it was the closest thing you can find in America!



  1. Those salt and pepper shakers are so cute!
