Default Sad with the new law...

I'm so sad... Since the new law is in the air, I stop making hairbows and headbands. I have no children but I love to make hairbows. Now, I can't sell hairbows beacuse the law, but I still have tons of supplies. I'm waiting to have a baby girl so I can make hairbows for her.

Can I still make and sell hairbows now. Some said that heirbows are not toys or something like that. I sell about $50-$100 before. Not much. but enough to pay some bills and I love making them. But with the new law, I can't afford the expensive test. I just hope that the congress or senate will decided that bows or headband are ok without test. Ahhhh...so sad sad sad...

On Jan. 30th, they pushed the law back until next year. So, you at least have a year of business as usual.

Offer your suppliers testing certificates to anyone who buys your bows.

The law did still go into effect today. It is still illegal to sell anything over the lead limit and that contains phthalates. Many, many consignment stores are shutting down. Many of the stores that carry my products are pulling everything with zippers, buttons, snaps, plastic parts, rhinestones, etc. Even Gymboree and Toys-R-Us have pulled things that surprised me.

It's a sad sad day.

Jim DeMint offered an amendment on this to add to the stimulus plan, but it was never called up for a vote. It is my understanding (from talking with a contact in Jim Bunnings office) that the majority leader in congress wouldn't call it.
