Mei Tai Baby

I am so excited to have Mei Tai Baby carriers now in stock!! We fell in love with these carriers when my now four and a half year old was a babe. I've been bugging the MTB people about selling to retailers forever, but they are a small family-owned business and I understand making that step can be long and hard. Finally, they are ready and I have my first shipment in. I feel like it is already Christmas!

Locals, stop by and try one on. Out of towners, check out the fabrics we have in stock.
Here is a picture of our youngest last Christmas in the Mei Tai Baby I bought several years ago.

Post-Sale Review

I will definitely try to have more open houses/sales in the future. This one was a lot of fun and it was great to have people be able to browse, talk with others about the products, and to let their kids play. It made me wish I could go ahead and open a storefront right now, but it works so much better out of our home for the moment. I might be able to work something out soon where I have a more permanent display room in the house. It is a work in progress.

Here are some pictures pre-kids and fun!

Klean Picnic

When I decided to start a blog for my business, one of the perks was sharing the products in action. Here is a picture my friend Angi sent to me. She and my friend Kris had a picnic at a park with their kids and this is what it looked like. They used their Klean Kanteens and To-Go Ware. Not only is drinking and eating out of stainless steel better for you and your kids, but it is also better for the environment. I wish they came with the pretty tablecloth. They really know how to throw a picnic with style!
