Good News about that Crazy Law

A few days ago, I posted about a law that goes into effect on Feb 10th, 2009, requiring testing on all products to be sold for children ages 12 and under. There was concern that, as written, the law didn't make exceptions for thrift stores.

Well the Consumer Products Safety Commission recently released some guidelines for resellers and thrift stores about this law. You can read their guidelines here.

This law has me a bit freaked out for my business. Hopefully there will be a few more clarifications before everything is finalized.

I do too. It is so burdensome to small business people and crafts people. I'm sure you aren't putting
lead in your cute hats!! Way to fix the economy, congress.

At least resale can sleep easier. Now they need to make some sort of sensible "plain english" declaration for handmade goods.
