STAR POP Vintage + Modern 3rd Anniversary Party

STAR POP vintage + modern, in Cleveland's Waterloo Arts District, is turning three! Come celebrate three years of recycling pop culture, and saving the planet, with cake, prizes, drawing, and a dragon! STAR POP vintage + modern buys and sells toys, clothing, music, movies, video games, books, art, and other pop culture collectibles, at affordable prices for kids and collectors. STAR POP vintage + modern's owner Troy Schwartz carefully hand picks every item in the store, and virtually everything in the store has been recycled in an effort to offer environmentally friendly and dollar-conscious shoppers a sustainable alternative to traditional retail. In addition to eating cake and winning fun prizes, STAR POP vintage + modern wants to see you exercise your creative side, so during the anniversary party, Leia Alligator, of Picklefight Puppets, will be encouraging kids of all ages to draw pictures inspired by some of their favorite toys, clothing, music, movies, video games, books, and art. Guests will also have the chance to meet Shinsetsu the Dragon, the youngest known Asian Snow Dragon in the world. Shinsetsu is a magical 12 foot long, 24 pound dragon puppet, masterfully crafted by Scotty Lees of BigStyle Productions, in Columbus, Ohio.

This Tremont coffee joint feels like a blast from the past. With a wood-paneled interior, dim-lighting and wooden furniture, the space gives you the feeling of being in an Enlightenment-era French salon. Along with fine coffees, it offers a large selection of bakery and food options, including chocolate and croissants.
