Calling PA DE & NJ mommies.

Hi,

I'll be moving to the area soon. Is there anything I should know about the area?

I am from the West coast, so I'm sure this will be culture shock for me, and I don't know anyone in the area. I have no family there either.

What can you tell me? Advice ect. I am looking for work. I am a radiology/mammography tech, but I don't know any staffing agencies in the area.

I have a CD business and am thinking of opening a CD store, but don't have any clue if it's a good idea or not.

Any words of wisdom would be helpful thanks,

Katrina

Re: Calling PA DE & NJ mommies.

Last I checked (which was a few years ago) there is no CD store in Philly or south Jersey. I didn't look into Deleware as I live in central Jersey and don't go that far south unless on vacation.

I think it would be nice if you could get a few diapers in women's health stores (like the kind that rent breast pumps and such) that are attached to hospitals. I got a TON of stuff from the one that is attached to Pennsylvania hospital (in Philly). I think there is a store like this in the Upenn, CHOP area too... I know there is one for cancer patients in the Perelman center (across the street from Upenn and CHOP). I don't know about other hospitals as those are the 2 I mainly deal with.

Good luck with your move!

Hi! We are in West Chester. Did you move yet? Where did you end up?? We definitely need a CD store in the area. Birthmark used to be a good one inMedia but they closed.
I'd also love to meet up with some CDing, Babywearing, BFing mamas- not many around here!

Hope the move went well.
Barbara

Unfortunately, DH got a job offer here that we couldn't turn down. We stayed in Los Angeles.

Darn - I got all excited. I just came on to see if anyone was in my area (Wilmington, DE) and thought I might have somewhere to get some cloth diapers in person. Oh well, I would have stayed in LA over DE too
