How is CPSIA affecting your business? Anyone has an update on what is going on with CPSIA?

I know that there is a discussion thingy happening today at Noon on Etsy. Don't know the details though since I'm not a seller. I know Etsy has an area set up: http://blog.buyhandmade.org/

Worth bumping.

I did some reading up on it but am not sure what the current status is. I would like to stay updated on it, and hope that Martha Stewart really gets behind the fight, sicne she is such a big promoter of hand-made toys. I just can't even imagine handmade toys being illegal. What a strange world this would be.

On second thought, I wonder if people would "not for children" or "not toys" or something like that, so they can continue to produce and sell their items.

I would just slap a "just for decoration" disclaimer on it.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
