Saving handmade kids toys and clothes

There is a new law coming into effect February 10 which requires all manufacturers making products intended for 12 adn under to have their products tested by a 3rd party lab for the cost of hundreds to thousands of dollars. This is intended to keep children safe from lead and phthalates but instead will put small business owners out of business. Large corporations are also going to suffer.

1000 markets

Just made my first sale on 1000 markets, woo hoo. Haven't had a sale on Etsy since November 20. Beginning to get concerned about the new CPSIA law affecting all children's products beginning in February. This would make all sellers get their stuff tested if it is for 12 and under, tested for lead, etc., at $100+ for each yarn color, new batch, etc., essentially putting all small businesses out of business. I have my fingers crossed for a change in the law before then.
