If you are not too picky you might find a pair of sneakers here. Located inside the Quakertown farmers market. This store is really hit or miss. They may have just a few sizes of certain shoes, but you can usually find something good. I've seen some great bargains, like reboks for $7 or $8 . Some of the styles are pretty ugly, but just keep looking.
Ten thousand Villages is really a neat store. They carry items from all over the world. People in third world countries create crafts to be sold here, and they get the profit. A few years ago I took my girl scout troop on a field trip here. The girls loved it and got to dress up in foreign costumes. This store is hands on, kid friendly, and reasonably priced.
I like coming to the care and share shops. There are three different shops: clothing, furniture, and variety. In the variety store I've gotten all sorts of books and games for the kids. I've also gotten craft type items and household goods. The volunteer workers there are friendly and enjoyable. The proceeds from this store go to the Mennonite charities.
Brian Krady has done all sorts of handyman work for my mom including plumbing and carpentry. His work is beautiful and he gets the job done quickly and efficiently. My mom has never had a problem with Brian and calls him often to do the kind of things that her loving son cannot. I highly recommend him.
Tom Dumire is a great electrician. He's been in the business for many years and can handle all sorts of projects. He is a good Christian and he won't rip you off. This is a family business. His son-in-law works for him and he will pass the business along. If you want your work done by honest people, call Tom.
I've taken a tour of this place and the craftsmenship is out of this world. Each cabinet is handmade, each piece of wood is selected with perfection in mind. These cabinets are flawless. All custom made, you can have anything you want. I was very impressed by this place. I just wish I could afford it.
We have gotten stone from Stone Depot several times. I have always been pleased with the quality and price. They have a lot of different stones to choose from. We like the round stomes for our driveway because you can walk barefoot and not cut yourself on the sharp edges. It cost a little more, but it was still reasonably.
We have looked into this school several times. We like the academics end of things, and the strong Christian values are obvious, but This school goes just a little too far. Boys must allow girls to get on the bus first, and girls must always wear skirts. My friend's kid who goes there got in trouble for having leggings on under her skirt outside in the winter! If you beleive in a strict education, you'll find it here.
I visited this school and absolutely loved it. They are so different than and other school. Parents are required to be involved, and bullying is not tolerated. They beleive in student let learning and do projects reflecting those interests. They also do community service projects. My kids are on the waiting list - that's the only negative about this place - it's hard to get in.
Two of my kids went to nursery school here. The class sizes were wonderful, only 12 or 14 kids in a class with 2 teachers. I loved that the school is connected to the elementary school. The kids get to go to a real library and computer lab. They also had spanish class every week. My kids formed friendships here that have lasted for years.
