CPSIA Awareness goes to Hollywood!

We are really exited to share with you the following information:

Oviedo, FL (June 2009) - Style Cafe Moms, an online leader in celebrity gifting, announces the presentation of a CPSIA Awareness Basket to Angelina Jolie, Tori Spelling and Julia Roberts.
Style Café Moms has put together these baskets with help from our clients, most of whom are work at home moms and all of whom will be affected by the CPSIA Law. This law, although originated to protect our children, is creating financial devastation (and even bankruptcy) to businesses whose products pose no threat to children and never have. The law is written very poorly. It’s too vague, too broad, and too retroactive-so come 2/10 it is unlawful for retailers to have inventory on their shelves that they can’t provide certificates for, causing them thousands of dollars in lost inventory that the day before was legal to sell (T-shirts, onesies, hairclips, socks, baby slings, etc.) Everything you can think of that you and your children enjoy, potentially will no longer be available, unless each product is lead tested by a third party lab approved by CPSC. Not such a big dea l you think, each test is an excess of $300+. And the test must be done for every production run, color variation, and repeated again on the same product when produced again costing businesses thousands of dollars, when the product may only take them a few hundred dollars a year itself. Fortunately this law has been stayed for one year and does not pose an immediate threat to these businesses but in a year we are hoping that a few celebrities can lend their voice or even just a letter to let congress know that such a law would put many work at home mothers out of business and stop the development of great products such as the ones included in this gift basket. We do hope you review the basket contents and would love to hear from you regarding any feedback you may have about the enclosed products. We strongly support the work at home mom community & we feel their products should be recognized to encourage their growth.
