I was visiting one of my favorite sites and online communities this morning: PoshMama when I read an article that just blows my mind in disbelief! You must read it....titled:
New Law Will End Handmade and Thrift Store Purchases for Kids!
I can only say What? This is going too far, or at least I think so as someone who enjoys yard sales shopping on ebay, etc... I understand their point; however, this is just going TOO far and will just mushroom into some bigger issues. Might I add....extremely bad timing in our economy, etc.... Curious what I am upset about? Read the article by clicking the link above that will direct you to PoshMama's front page article. I will be doing some research on my own for updates, etc...on this matter.
Just me thinking out loud:
Is the economy possibly so bad that this is secretly to help the big businesses force parents to shop in the stores to boost the economy since many have resorted to secondhand to save money due to the lack of? The economy is bad and many have turned to thrift stores, yard sales, hand-me-downs from friends...etc...and surely, this has taken a toll on big business? Hey, you never know! I mean, I understand it is to protect kids from lead etc...; however, why wasn't this done some other time since it has been going on for years? Why now in this economy? Hmmm.....
How on earth are they going to monitor that? That is ridiculous.
I have no idea, but it is insane. I am going to have to keep an eye on this one. I hope they do appropriate revisions to this law before putting it into action in February.
