Not too long ago a friend of mine sent me a message about an online store that sold cloth diapers. There are a million of them! This one happens to be run by a mom who is local to me. She lives 20 minutes away. How did I not know this? The store, Green Baby Shoppe, sells cloth diapers, cloth diapering accessories, organic toys, teething bling, and stuff for moms as well. The coolest part is that I can go pick up what I buy! I can save shipping and support a local mom.
Before this I bought many of my diapers from another local store which also ran a cloth diaper service. Unfortunately, I wasn’t pleased with the entire operation. I bought there to save myself shipping, but if given the option I would rather have spent my money at Jillian’s Drawers in Ithaca or used a free shipping coupon from Kelly’s Closet if I had one.
The person who runs the store is extremely nice and easy to work with. The first time I made a purchase she met my friend and I at the local mall. I bought a Planet Wise wet/dry hanging wet bag. The next time I needed another wet bag I dropped by her house! It was steps away from where I was going anyway.
I am kicking myself that I just found out about Green Baby Shoppe. When I was pregnant I would have benefited greatly from a cloth diaper consultation, which the owner offers. She comes to your home with the different types of diapers and gives you a little run down of what is out there and how to cloth diaper. One of the hardest things about cloth diapering is where to start!
So, if you live in the Central NY area, you should give Green Baby Shoppe a look see! And , if you aren’t, she ships too!
