NEW! Weekly Special/Contests!

Posted by Tracey Valade on Monday, September 12, 2016, In : Announcements 
Hey fan!
We're feeling to need to give back and at the same time drive sales. So from now until December, every week we'll feature a new baby carrier, that you have a chance to win!

This is how it works; each week I select a baby carrier we retail (this week is the Chimparoo Ring Sling). If we sell 5 or more of that carrier, one of every 5 sold is free. The customer must purchase the carrier and once we hit 5 sold of the select item, one person receives a refund for the full purchase price!
