Due to the stringent regulations put on all manufacturers of any items for children 12 and under (including toys, clothing, accessories, room decor, etc) by the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act, artists and small business owners who make handmade products for that age group in the US will be going out of business early next year.
Check out a great post on what's happening at Cool Mom Picks.
If you'd like to help out, send this letter to both your Congressman and Senator. You can also send the same letter directly to the CPSC.
Also, don't forget to sign the petition to save handmade kids items!!
Please help spread the word, and do your part to save small businesses of handmade kids items. Together we can make a change!
Happy Friday! Amy
