Handmade gets a break

A lot of rumors have been going around about the CPSIA. Ali says some of them are true. So does the Consumer Product Safety Commission. (They would know.)

Lead restrictions will still tighten (which is good!), but those expensive certification requirements have been postponed for a year (also good!), giving Congress time to reconsider.

Did you hear that? I think a whole bunch of crafters, parents, small retailers (and maybe some toys) breathed a huge sigh of relief.

  1. Hooray! Also, those are the CUTEST baby shoes I think I have ever seen!

  2. Liz: I saw a TON of cute baby bootie photos on flickr - all by that same person.


What do you have to say about that?
