Artifact Boutique of West Chester

Artifact is a great boutique right in the heart of downtown West Chester. It offers ladies the  boutique look at affordable prices, everything in the store is always under $60! I have been in the store once or twice before to browse around for a gift and I would have to say it is a very nice store. As you walk in you instantly get the boutique feel, everything is very unique and fashionable. Even from the outside of the shop, the window displays and corner location, instantly give off a great boutique vibe… This is just a great place to shop in my book! The thing that differentiates Artifact from its competitors in the area is that everything is always under $60, which is a great selling point because many times boutique stores are very pricy and expensive. Therefore, when you visit Artifact you know you will be getting a great deal on some specialized and unique products! Next time you are walking around downtown West Chester make sure to check out Artifact Boutique at 200 West Gay Street, West Chester, PA. For more information you can contact them by phone at 610.431.7111 or visit their Facebook page for special offers and happenings at the store by clicking here.

Local Flooding Feared and Snow?

Heavy rain’s the main concern today for Philadelphia and its suburbs, while areas to the west and north could see snow on the ground by Thursday morning. Predicted snow accumulations range from a coating to an inch in outer Chester, Montgomery and Bucks Counties, to two to four inches for Reading and Allentown, to perhaps six inches in the Poconos. With up to three inches possible in places, a flood advisory will be in effect from 10 a.m. to late tonight from central Delaware to central Jersey.

Small streams and the usual poorly drained low-lying streets are likeliest to flood, potentially causing traffic headaches for both the morning and afternoon commutes – and, for some spots, perhaps even into Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. Overnight, those western and northern areas should be snow mix in, followed by a changeover to just snow. Then colder temperatures will settle in, with highs in the 40s through the weekend, and lows around freezing mark for a few nights, followed by dips into the 20s Saturday and Sunday.

Car Flips After Hitting Ladder on 202

If you were driving on 202 yesterday like myself you might have seen or been involved in the traffic backup. I was very curious of what caused the local delay and found out a Honda Civic traveling south on Route 202 in West Goshen struck an extension ladder that had fallen off a pickup truck. The car veered off the highway, struck a tree and landed on its roof.

When the driver of the pickup truck came back to retrieve the ladder, he found that he had caused the crash. He was cited by West Goshen police for not properly tying the ladder to his ladder rack. He retrieved the ladder before leaving the scene with a traffic citation.

The driver of the Civic and her male passenger were both checked out by EMS personnel at the scene but both refused further treatment. Assisting West Goshen police at the scene were West Chester Fire Department, Good Fellowship Ambulance, Medic 91 and West Chester Fire Police.
