Product Safety and Recalls

BRITCHES AND LACE WILL NOT HOST A FALL 2017 SALE.

PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR SPRING 2018 SALE UPDATES.

 

We at Britches and Lace are always concerned with the merchandise our consignors bring to the sale. And as we are sure all of our consignors would not want to put any products that have been recalled into the home of another family – we urge all consignors to check out the following websites for recalls regarding children’s products. It is each consignor’s responsibility to not bring in anything that has been recalled or is unsafe.

www.cpsc.gov – U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

www.safekids.org – Safe Kids Worldwide

NEW! www.wemakeitsafer.com – this is a new site that we think is far easier to use – check it out!

There has been a lot of publicity about the new law that went into effect February 10, 2009 called the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. A press release from the Consumer Product Safety Board has been issued in regard to “reselling” products. Please link to this press release as follows: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml09/09086.html. We urge all consignors to check the website www.cpsc.gov for all recalls of children’s products.

Any consignor bringing in any of the following types of merchandise are urged to check the above website for recall notifications.

  • ¬†Cribs (regular, portable, bassinets, etc.)
  • Playpens (wooden, mesh, etc.)
  • Baby gates
  • Strollers
  • High Chairs
  • Baby Walkers/Exersaucers
  • Toy Chests
  • Toddler Beds/Bunk Beds

We know this is an added step to an already sometimes rushed time of getting your merchandise ready. We just want all our merchandise at the Britches and Lace Consignment Sale to be the best possible buys for our shoppers. It takes all of us working together to insure the quality of our merchandise and have a successful sale.
