Happy Anniversary to us...

Well, it snuck up on us! Little Padded Seats has been in a storefront for ONE FULL YEAR as of Wednesday, March 3rd! It passed without much fanfare, since we didn't realize the date until it was upon us. We had a small, last minute Facebook promotion and a small party in the store on the following Saturday, March 6th.

Price Increase

Last summer saw a series of increases in the price we pay for Country Save laundry detergent. Overall, our cost increased about 35%. At the time we decided to absorb the extra cost. However, we have recently had to revisit this decision. We thought we would let you in on our rationale now that we've hiked our price.

Natural Living Expo

The 5th annual Natural Living Expo is this weekend, March 27-28. We'll be there along with almost 150 other exhibitors. You can find everything at Natural Living Expo, including green architects, business consultants, chiropractors, dentists, midwives, and photographers; practitioners of acupuncture, astrology, feng shui, and yoga; purveyors of BABY CARRIERS, books, CLOTH DIAPERS, GREEN CLEANING PRODUCTS, herbs, organic foods, rain barrels; and advocacy groups for everything under the sun! This year, in addition to introducing people to cloth diapering and baby wearing, we will be taking some items for sale at the expo.

While you're at the expo, please stop by and say 'Hi', we'd love to see you! Don't forget to sign up for our giveaway - two of our newest products, an Antibac Enviro Cloth & Antibac Window Cloth by Norwex (affectionately referred to as Bert & Ernie). These amazing cloths let you clean and disinfect with just water! You gotta see them!

Once again this year, Lauri will be participating in one of the educational sessions. She is on the Raising Children Naturally panel at 4:30pm on Saturday.
