We’ve asked for one. We’ve complained that our town didn’t have one. We’ve ordered online and paid shipping fees. We’ve driven to Spartanburg (and however much we love you, Mary, it is a long drive!).
Now it is here. A natural parenting store. In our town. And it opens this week!
Come out of your hiding holes on Black Friday (or am I the only one who hides on Black Friday?) and visit Natural Baby between 10am and 6pm. There will be giveaways! And deals! And lovely things to buy. Things that are carefully crafted and sustainable. Things that are fairly traded. Things that are reusable (cloth diapers!). Things that are locally made.
Come and see!
And while you’re visiting, tell Ady, the wonderful mama behind this project, how excited you are. And give her your ideas for products to stock, free classes to offer, or ways to promote the store.
This is not simply another store. It is an opportunity to impact parenting choices and support families in making mindful choices. Ady wants the store to belong to the community–a place you can drop in to nurse a baby or let your toddler play while you catch your breath. A place for gatherings like the monthly Babywearing group or LLL. It is the new home of Upstate BirthNetwork. Have I told you yet of this project? Soon I will.
I’ll be teaching a free Cloth Diapering 101 class on Dec. 11 at 2pm. And the monthly Babywearing group will meet Dec. 9 at 6pm.
