Not sure if you realize the big changes that are about to occur in the children’s retail market. On Feb 10th, a lot and I mean a lot, of small custom designers of children’s clothes, toys, diapers….actually anything sold specifically for 12 year olds or under will have to put each item they make through 3rd party lab testing to insure they are safe.
I am all for safety, but this will take out a vast number of small grass roots artisans that got into the business in the first place looking to make products for their children with quality materials that they knew came from the USA and or were not made in 3rd world sweat shops.
So, unless something changes fast, Baby Vagabond will close it’s doors on Feb 10th. That means I need to find something else to do with my stash and to keep me off the streets 🙂
For now, I’ll go back to the Bags and Wall Pockets. I’m playing around with
a new take on wrap skirts and peasant tops for women, too.
So now, my first bag for the shop:
I have to keep busy, you know! Plus, it’s my excuse not to be doing housework all the time. HA!
