Conscious Shopping for Today’s Baby
Edmonton’s indie & boutique baby show features local, handmade, organic and fair trade products for babies
October 24, 2011 (Edmonton, AB)
There’s a new “conscious shopping” attitude in the mothering community. New mothers are more interested than ever in purchasing eco-friendly and socially conscious items for their new babies. Rather than seeking mass-produced, lower quality toys, bedding and clothing, many moms are looking for unique items that are good for the environment, their children, and their local economy.
On Saturday, October 29, 2011 in Edmonton, over 70 exhibitors will come together at WeeStock 2011 – and indie & boutique baby show that features local, handmade, organic and fair trade products for babies. From 10 am to 4 pm at the Edmonton Aviation Heritage Centre at 11410 Kingsway Ave, shoppers can find a variety of unique, high quality products and services that local businesses in our community offer. WeeStock 2011 is the only show of its kind where all exhibitors are Alberta-owned businesses and offer only the best products for babies and their families.
Christina Dennis, owner of local baby clothing company Golly Gee Baby, says: “We’re passionate about supporting independent artisans, local boutiques and community groups and connecting them to Edmonton families.”
“This is our third show”, adds Leah Seidl, owner of handmade accessories company Whimsical Elements, “and we’ve been blown away by the positive response we’ve received from the local mom community for our show and its vendors. Our 2011 show will be more exciting than ever!”
In addition to a unique shopping experience, guests at WeeStock 2011 will also be able to park their strollers and try out a baby carrier, use our private parents’ lounge to feed and change baby and let their children “get messy” in our play area.
Admission to WeeStock 2011 is $5.00 at the door and children are free. Because WeeStock believes in supporting important causes, “Alexander’s Quest”, an organization raising awareness for children’s cancer, will be at the show and all proceeds from a raffle will be donated to them.
