Lives In: West Reading

Occupation: Ethan: Teacher – Reading School District; Chrissy: Owner – MADE Jewelry Boutique & Studio; Maeta – Daughter

What drew you to West Reading?
We first purchased the property in West Reading to open my jewelry business, MADE Jewelry Boutique & Studio. I was originally drawn to the diverse mix of business and aesthetics of Penn Ave. Through a wild twist of events, we ended up living in the apartment above the shop a few years ago. It’s the people and a strong sense of community that have kept us living here.

Share a hidden gem of Greater Reading.
Our family’s favorite hidden gem of Greater Reading  is The Reading Museum. It’s easy to spend the day taking in the exhibits and walking the beautiful grounds.

Greater Reading has it all! It is just as easy to experience an elevated evening of fine food and culture as it is to access a world class nature trail.
