At the end of September, my mother (the babysitter), my daughter and I took a little road trip down to Louisville, Kentucky for the ABC Kids Expo. This is a tradeshow dedicated to--you guessed it--all baby and kids products. It was absolutely shocking to see how many products there are made specifically for our little kiddos. From toys to strollers, nursing bras to apparel for children and yes, even diapers. In fact, the Expo was held at the Louisville Exposition Center which provided ONE MILLION square feet of space. And yes, all one million square feet were consumed by children's products.
I had a chance to see, touch and feel all of the new products by many of my vendors that I carry at PinStripes and PolkaDots including Blueberry/Swaddlebees, BumGenius, PlanetWise, Best Bottoms, WeeHuggers and many more.
So, because of this little trip, I've added many new products to the shop and we also have newer prints/colors in many of the products that you know and love. Below is a list, with links, because to paste all of this on Facebook would be a bit extreme and take up much of your newsfeed :-)
*BumGenius 4.0 One-Size Pocket Diaper in Dazzle, Mirror and Sassy . These have been added to the Bum Genius 4.0 "Buy 5 get 1 Free Sale" which goes until the end of October.
*New prints from Blueberry and Swaddlebees including Dinos, Tweets, Swirls, Monkeys and Butterfly, preview here
*New products from Thirsties including Booty Love, and new colors/prints for their diaper covers. Also just in, the Thirsties Duo Diaper in Snaps.
*We all love bamboo--now bamboo 6r inserts specifically for your Rumparooz!
And should I mention companies new to PinStripes and PolkaDots?
*Pink Daisy mama cloths in stay-dry and organic cotton
*Pink Daisy Nursing Pads in organic cotton and bamboo
and last but certainly not least...
*FuzziBunz One-Size Elite
