Default Please don't hurt me....

I had briefly heard of the new laws a while back, but didn't know any details. i had heard from one of my stores and they asked me to put a certain sticker on my packaging and they would do the rest. that's really all i had heard about it all.

Now that i've been on this site for a little bit, i've been able to see just how much is involved.

and frankly my dear, i don't give a damn.

really, it sucks and is soooo annoying and i'll be honest- i haven't changed things as of right now. am i going to change things asap? no.

so please don't hurt me and think evil of me. i'm just going to do as i've done. i sell mostly to stores and they are buying from me as usual. when i see issues come up, i will tend to them accordingly- like the store that asked me for special labeling.

i just wanted to say this after i've been reading post after post about it all and i can hear the frustrations in the posts and some people are even hurt by other board members about things being said. i don't want that to happen and i only just got here. this place is amazing and you women here are amazing too. thanks for all the help you've given me in this short time.





(should i click the "submit new thread" button?!)

why would anybody wanna hurt you?

Is this your site? http://www.moogclips.com/ I see nothing wrong what you're selling. Just one thing: the Swarovski's. Unless it's geared towards above 13 and umm,.. dogs...lol...(sorry, I saw a thread a week ago or so that a site closed shop due to that issue: Swarovski's) I did take note that your site (IF, it's yours), that it's Swarovski's rhinestones..not sure if there's any difference between Swarovski's Crystals and Swarovski's Rhinestones.

But, if that's not your site, I rest my case as I/we do not know what you're selling so, we can't hurt you...lol....I mean, regardless.. =)

LOL. that is indeed my site. i've heard about the whole Swarovski thing, but i don't know what to do about it. it's funny how ALL of my customers love anything with Swarovski's the best and they sell so well. individual customers and the stores. the more clips like that, the better. I was using the Swarovski's long before i had ever heard of any of these issues, let along the crystals. there is nothing like real crystals though. the acrylic stuff just stinks compared to it.

if what i'm selling is ok, then what is NOT ok? (besides the crystals). you mean the artificial flowers and such? I was actually going to buy some from Cuteque...

thanks for responding, Cynthia.

I think we all understand that Swarovski's are the best especially with the shiny bling bling thingy..lol.. (oooooo, shiny...). I only use Swarovski's but ever since the CPSIA did their GRAND entrance last year, I stopped using it. Boo hoo,, all my crystals...so pretty....can't use and I won't use...well, ok, personal use....

But anyhoos, if you haven't read, (you're not the only one)...there's been discussions on this Swarovski's thingy..

The boutique owner I sell to was pretty bummed when I told her I can't use Swarovski crystals until I found some sort of crystal that the CPSIA would allow. In fact, I don't even know if any of her other suppliers are doing anything about the law. It didn't sound like it when I let her know that one of the bow cards needed to go with each of my items because of the law.

What really gets me is that Swarovski tested and retested, and even used acid. The acid they used is so incredibly strong that most labs won't handle it, and it does not accurately replicate how lead would leach into the human body. Even with that test, they were well below the legal limit. They showed this info to the CPSC and asked for an exemption, and were flat out denied. But Mattel can get away without third party testing? What the heck?

I happen to like how you are thinking! Kind of the direction I am leaning. Seriously. I am *so close* to placing an order for the Swarovski's. I want every color!

What irks me that the reason for all of this testing BS had to do with the toys that larger companies were selling and somehow it trickled down to us. Now those larger companies are "exempt" and we are not. Go figure!
