Important change to the sale of Cribs

Friends of Half-Pint,

The Consumer Product Safety Commission recently created a new set of safety standards regarding cribs.  The new standards state that any crib manufactured before July 23rd, 2010,  CAN NOT BE SOLD OR DONATED.    Enforcement of this standard takes effect on July 28th of this year.   Due to the short period of time between the July 23, 2010 and the upcoming sale, Half-Pint has decided to suspend the sale of cribs indefinitely.  We apologize, as we know this effects both our consignors and shoppers, but we simply can not afford to risk potentially selling a crib that is not in compliance with the new CPSC standard.

Please note that the suspension of sales ONLY APPLIES TO TRADITIONAL CRIBS.  It does not effect gear such as Pack N’ Plays, co-sleepers, and bassinets or any type of mattress.  We still sell these items and they are often highly sought after by our pregnant mama’s.  If you have a question about a specific piece of gear, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

More information regarding this new safety standard can be found on the CPSC website by clicking here.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and compliance with this issue.  At this point the decision to suspend the sales of cribs is the best way for us to ensure the safety of our shoppers and their families.  We will continue to evaluate the situation for future sales and will keep you updated if anything changes.

-EC and LS
