save handmade toys

Save Handmade Toys
As you may have heard there are some new consumer safety laws about to come into effect in the U.S. Although the new act is a great step forward in improving the safety standards of children's products, in unfortunately isn't sympathetic to the handmade world as the new testing and labelling requirements are prohibitive for small crafters and artisans.

Please click on the button above or in my sidebar to see the information and ways to speak out.

At first I thought this wouldn't affect me as I live in another country, however this will impact anyone trying to sell handmade children's products, whether it be on etsy or through a brick and mortar store. So go save handmade toys.
