CPSIA woes, and how you can help!

Posted by boombatoomba on January 17, 2009 at 12:00 PM Comments comments (0)
Due to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) we have made the decision to no longer carry second hand children's clothing.
This decision was not an easy one to make, as we love to be an affordable place to recycle your goods!
So from now through the dreaded Feb. 10th we will be liquidating all used kids clothes.

All used kids clothing is now
Buy 2 get 1 free


We WILL still be buying/selling used cloth diapers and maternity. We are just going to be taking the store in a slightly different direction in order to comply with the CPSIA.
We hope you will stick with us, and work with us through our new growing pains.

If you would like more info on the CPSIA and what you can do to help our fight to fix it please go to any one of these:
-Official Site: http://www.cpsc.gov/ABOUT/Cpsia/cpsia.HTML
-Discussion Forum: http://cpsia-central.ning.com/

You are also welcome to email me if you have any questions and I will try to find you factual answers to all  of them.

Just poppin' in to let you all know that if you are searching for Small cloth diapers for a dang good deal, stop in the shop.
We have a ridiculous amount of small & newborn diapers in our Used section.
I am not kidding either, the amount is ridiculous.

We also have mediums, and larges in Used. So if you are looking for an earth friendly way to really save some cash, stop in this week!

Support your community...

During this tough economy, I want to remind everyone out there:
Buy Local First.
Buying a holiday gift for someone on your list, from a locally owned business help sustain our local economy!
So think twice before your go out on your shopping ventures, and try a locally owned business first!
If you are going to be shopping at Boomba Toomba this year, why not try some of our other local businesses in Uptown Village!

We have many great businesses in our little neighborhood, like Mint Tea an imports gift store and now eatery that supports all things fair trade!
We have music shops like Mermaid Music, and we have a GREAT vintage clothing shop called Urban Eccentric!
If you need unusual antiquities, we have several antique shops, like Old Glory and the Uptown Attic!
Have a young rocker in your family? try the Catalyst
We also have a skateboard/snowboard/bike shop called Bad Monkey where you are sure to find a great gift!

While your down here, head in to Mon Ami and enjoy delicious Stumptown Coffee, Crepes, and Moonstruck Chocolates. They even sell Art by local artists as well!

If you get hungry, there are some AMAZING places to snag a meal.
If you want healthy Mexican food, I urge you to try Provecho.
For a tastey trip to Italy, try La Bottega.
And if you just need a slice of pizza heaven, feel free to grab a bite at Vancouver Pizza Co.

There is a great feeling you get when you know your money is helping out your neighbors, friends and community. I urge you, this holiday season,
Think twice, Shop Local First!

Not your Grandma's craft fair!
