This is what I have planned for my Etsy update on Friday – this Friday December 12th. Right now I’m dressing and prepping them all – this is my favorite part of the process! I’m planning on uploading them at 4pm PST. They will be shipped out via Expresspost on Saturday morning to ensure that they get to their new homes in plenty of time!
I’ve had a couple of hours to look through all the information online about the CPSC. Etsy, has been a great source of information for myself. It’s great to see how everyone is banning together and sharing their information. I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing – I’ll get a lab test to verify that my dolls have no lead in them (duh!) to make transport into the US easy. I’m fortunate to only have very few products. So, Bambolettas will keep going.
I am very saddened though by what may be. I try not to live that way, I think that negative and fear based thinking only fuels negative outcomes. I’ve written a letter to my MP about this, even though I’m up here in Canada, this is a potentially devestating situation for a lot of talented and amazing people – many of which have turned into good friends. I hope that the CPSC isn’t out to get the ‘little guy’, it just doesn’t seem right.
