In the 1950s there were 71 wholesale produce dealers in the Strip District. By the 1970s there were about two dozen dealers left in the produce terminal. Remaining dealers began to expand their businesses by opening retail stores on Penn Avenue and Smallman Street. Today the Strip District is best known for its retail produce and ethnic food stores, restaurants and coffee shops.


We decided we needed a little getaway and found our way to Pittsburgh. Duane and I had so much fun! We attended the Handmade Arcade, a funky cool craft/art was so great, so many wonderful artists, so clever and original! I bought some great stuff and got a great goody bag for paying to get in an hour earlier, totally worth it.


Pittsburgh, I always love visiting you...always such a good time. We ate, we drank, we drank, we drank, we walked! I love yins!

From My Paper Crane, a super cute fortune cookie cleverly packaged in a tiny Chinese

takeout box for Wes! He was so excited when he opened it, it was great. :D The fortune says, "Your everlasting patience will be rewarded sooner or later." which is perfect because we have been working on Wes with having some patience. ;)
