Default New CPSIA law?

I am not even sure if I have that right.
I was browsing back threads and came across something about a law and selling stuff and lead. Then again on another one about a complaint about someone not following it. Can someone explain what this is or give me a link or whatever?
Thanks
Abbie

Question Re: New CPSIA law?

Ok i read all that and more and am still totally lost. How is anyone still selling anything? If you have to have every clip, spool of ribbon, every new wire package, different buttons how is that possible. How are you keeping record of every little thing in every bow? and labels?? OH my!! What am i missing?
Thanks

You are not missing anything. This law is going to be the death to the small business crafter. It was intended to stop big companies from turning a blind eye to parts that could be hazardous, but in the end they are the ones who got all the exceptions.

All I can say is call your congressman. Get your friends to call. Write letters. Show up at events where he/she is. Tell them how this law is impacting you.

Well, this law is no good. If any other newbies read this, there is a ton of info in the General Business Ideas Subforum. In case your like me and somehow totally missed that forum.

I guess we can hope that it changes. I've never sold bows, just started makeing them, but have sold some other crafts.

Thanks for the info and replies.
