Dam! We're busy little beavers!

We have quite a few events, both in Valley Junction and off-site, in which we will be participating or modifying our open hours. Here's a quick run down of where and when you will see us over the next couple of months...

Note: There is a key to the color coding at the bottom of the table.

Key to color coding
Off-site event that Little Padded Seats is participating in. Does not effect store hours.
Little Padded Seats class - Store is closed these hours.
Valley Junction event - Store is open extended hours, except when conflicting with in-store classes.
Lauri & Tommy attending All Baby & Child Expo. Little Padded Seats will be open normal hours.

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.

Product News

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.

Random Joke

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.

500 on Facebook!

We reached 500 friends on our Facebook page! Congratulations to Bridget Nicole! She is our lucky random winner of a $25 gift certificate.

Thank you to everyone for the extra push that got us to half a thousand friends. Now is no time to rest on our laurels, our next goal is ... FOUR DIGITS!

Keep recommending us to your friends and help spread the word about cloth diapers, baby carriers and breast feeding!
