Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act

Have you heard about the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act which takes effect on February 10th? I had heard something about it awhile back, but didn't realize the extent of it. It looks like my girls will be wearing a lot of hair clips since I enjoy making them so much, but won't be able to sell them or even give them away unless this changes. I think I've finally got the perfect stretchy wire to work with the bending of the clips too. Que sera.

So this would mean that every children's resale shop, Etsy shop, Goodwill/Salvation Army, endless small businesses, etc. will have to go out of business? I don't know how this could possibly be allowed to go into effect as it stands. It's crazy.

I heard about this a month ago and mom wanted me to put it on the family website. Now I won't have to since everyone reads your blog. :) Yay! I think this absolutely INSANE!
