Additionally, we have turned down the opportunity to participate in Bebe Palluza on the weekend of September 18-19. We are just too busy with other established local events to do this one as well. We hope that they have a great turn out! Please consider attending this baby event. They represent everything 'from pickles to tricycles'. We want to grab a few hours that weekend to drop in on this event to check them out and hopefully we will participate next time they are in town.
We only have a few product announcements to make this time...
- Care for your LilyPadz non-absorbent breast pads is now easier while on the go. LilyWipes are a set of six individually packaged wipes pre-moistened to clean and refresh your LilyPadz wherever you are.
- thinksport bottles now come in Orange in the 750ml (25 ounce) size and Black in the 350ml (12 ounce) size.
Oops! Last newsletter we told you that we had new bamboo Swaddlebees Baby Wipes. Well, we ordered bamboo wipes but the manufacturer actually sent us cotton velour/sherpa wipes. Sorry for the mis-communication!
We're expecting to bring in a couple *wink* of new products from attending the ABC Trade show next month ... so keep your eyes open.

It seems that despite the in-store displays and advertisements in the paper, stores don't want you to do your Christmas shopping too early.
A local store just arrested a fellow for shopping about two hours before the store opened.
