Hi there!
I just moved to Bushkill and have a few questions about the area .

Where are some good vintage stores or second hand stores in the area or East Stroudsburg?

On the west coast we would go to Ross to purchase good priced home goods (decor and kitchen items), it seems as though the nearest Ross is an hour away. Are there any other options in the East Staudsburg area for discounted home goods?

I have yet to find an authentic Mexican food restaurant lol , we have them all over on the west coast, are there any in the area?

Any good people to recommend for assistance with doing some renovation work on a basement? Particularly, putting in a ceiling and walls.

Also someone for basement clean up, there's just a lot of random stuff left from the previous owners I want thrown away .

A good pest control company?

Some family friendly or kid friendly activities. I've already found quite a few but you can never have to many. I would love to know about any karate or art classes etc...

A good bakery to order birthday cakes and holiday items?

Farmers Markwt?

Are there any spiritual, new age shops in East Stroudsburg... the ones that sell crystals, rocks, books, incense etc...

This is probably a stupid question but does UPS and FEDEX deliver here?

Any other info or recommendations y'all might have would be great.

I absolutely love the area, it's definitely one of the most beautiful places I've ever lived and the people here so far have been very nice. Thanks in advance for ur input , I know I'm asking a lot of questions .

Port Jervis ("Port" for short) has a few but the better ones will be in New Jersey or Orange County (NY). Links below.

Taco Bell has a store in Milford.

Supermarket or Wal Mart bakery. They get them in frozen but can decorate the cakes in store.

Do you want to buy a new garbage can or do you want to arrange for garbage pick-up?


P.S. Maybe someone else can answer the other questions?

Wally's Disposal Service in Dingman's Ferry or Charles E. Steuhl & Sons in Greeley. I believe that Steuhl will also clean out basements or will know of someone who does.

Stroudsburg, Courthouse Square, Saturday mornings. In fact there is probably a lot in Stroudsburg that may interest you (independent book store, independent record store, Sherman Theatre and so on).

LOL pretty sure they do. Count yourself lucky that you've moved to the area after the 911 re-addressing project has settled in. Your delivery address is no longer "the 4th blue house after the fork in the road."

You might be interested in Columcille Megalith Park, south of Stroudsburg along route 191. It's a pretty well-kept secret but if you're into crystals and stuff then you'll love this place.

Not sure about authentic Mexican food but if you want to try authentic Peruvian, try Inti on River Road in Shawnee/Minisink Hills. They have recently added Llama Artisinal Ice Cream, whatever that is.

We also have authentic Thai in Shawnee at Saen Thai Cuisine.
