I was doing a little perusing today on craigslist when I came across several postings referring to "CPSIA" or the Consumer Product SafetyImprovement Act, which- from what I gather - pretty much means that on February 10th it will become illegal to sell used childrens items. Clothing, toys, shoes, high chairs, doesn't matter. And I don't know if you've noticed but that's like .....my life. Love garage sales, love craigslist, etc. Have you heard about this new law? What do you think? I appreciate that they are trying to make childrens products safer....but what about those of us who don't want to buy all brand new things for our kids...or better yet, what if it is not a matter of preference but a matter of finances. Anyway, two giant thumbs down for this law and I guess I better buy clothing for my kids and all of their toys they'll need for the rest of their lives by February 10th.
Please write an angry letter to your congressman. I did.
