I wanted to share some news from one of my favorite online stores, Babycapes. Unfortunately, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act will go into effect on Feb. 10 and if not amended Babycapes will be greatly impacted.
I love Babycapes for many reasons, one being safety. It's dangerous to strap a child into a car seat over bulky coats and snow suits. Second, they are uber-stylish! So many great colors and material to choose from.
2008 was a tough year economically and 2009 is looking a little scary too. But if you are still looking for a coat to keep your child warm (and one that will last them approximately 3 years) then you will be interested to know that Babycapes is having an American Economic Recovery Sale. All styles of Babycapes are 40% off regular retail pricing!
In the mean-time, if you are a mom-run company that is also being affected by the CPSIA Law and are having a similar sale, please let me know and I will put you in touch with the Babycapes owners. They are promoting these sales on their blogs, too.
Now go hit that sale and support a mom-run business.
