West Reading Avenues Summer 2017 - 25

Mobile Ice Cream Parlor
2015 zoning changes made tattoo shops an acceptable occupancy
and shops began to appear all along the Avenue, including Gregg
Spencer's After Midnite Designs, Creative Vibes Tattoo Studio, and
Wicked Mystic Tattooing and Art Studio. Now the majority of David's clients are actually female - housewives, professionals, mothers
and daughters, friends like Chalain and me - all types of women.
Business has steadily grown even with so many shops within a few
blocks of each other. David has a generous nature, and no doubt
believes when one does well they all do well. So there you have it
- the beautiful and decidedly feminine vibe that is body art in 2017.
When is the last time you participated in a good old-fashioned drum
circle? What is that you ask? To find out visit Earth Rhythms in
the 600 block of Penn Ave, which opened in 1993 and describes
itself as a unique global marketplace. An interactive drum circle has
been known to break out in front of the store or along the Avenue,
especially during West Reading street festivals. Drum lessons, Reiki
healing energy sessions, and crystal and metal singing bowl meditations can be found here.

Situated behind Earth Rhythms is Celtic Myth and Moonlight, a place
where you can "journey through space and time into a different realm."
Celtic Myth & Moonlight was established in 2003 to enlighten and
inform those interested in the traditional wares and spirituality of
the ancient Celts. It is truly a magical space that should be on your
checklist as you explore West Reading.
No discussion of this nature would be complete without mentioning
Holistic Skateshop in the 500 block. I will admit I haven't been in
this shop....yet. I don't skateboard anymore, not since that incident
in 8th grade when I fell in the driveway and later that night at the
football game my knee swelled like a balloon and my dad had to come
pick me up. The humiliation still stings. But anyway this place will
properly outfit and provide everything a skater boy (or girl) needs.
And shoes...they have shoes. Say no more - I'm going to check it
out. Also watch for cool skateboarding demos around town during
borough events. It's always a good show.
