CHA Craft Fusion Show is a Big Success

The 2012 Craft & Hobby Association Show was help July 16—19 at the Donald E. Stevens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL and Baby & Kids was on hand to experience the sights and multiple demonstrations of the show.

In booth 523, Ranger was featuring a demonstration by Tim Holtz. Holtz was demonstrating how to use the signature Ranger supplies to a large group of craft enthusiasts and buyers. Additionally, there were demonstrations at Martha Stewart Crafts, 3M, Modge Podge and many others!

The show was busy with orders and crafters trying out new products and sharing insights into how to get the best use, and sales out of the crafting supplies. The smell of hot glue and fun was in the air!

Atlanta's America's Mart Summer Gift Show

The Atlanta America's Mart lifted the summer buying season with a lot of energy and enthusiasm in the juvenile category, especially. The show was well attended from all over the country and internationally and attendance numbers are projected to have held up to those of a year ago, boding a good market. The quality and variety of the offerings — from clothing to baby products to juvenile toys — provided a wonderful selection of unique goods to offer customers and separate the savvy baby retailer from the big box crowd.

Baby K'tan Announces Surprise Price Cut

In a surprise move designed to help parents & retailers cope with the current economic recovery, Baby K'tan has temporarily slashed the domestic MSRP of its flagship baby carrier by almost 10%, to just $49.95. Wholesale pricing has been reduced to reflect the new MSRP. The price cut, which will be in effect for the entire last half of 2012, is in stark contrast to price increases recently announced by some competing baby carrier manufacturers.

"We understand how difficult it is for many parents to make ends meet in the current economic climate," says Baby K'tan President Michal Chesal. "Our unique baby carriers were already a great value, and now they're even more affordable. We are proud to be able to make our carriers more affordable to parents and caregivers by lowering our prices temporarily. Not only should our new pricing help customers, it should stimulate additional business for all of our retail outlets."

Best known for newborn carrying, the Baby K'tan is an exceptionally secure cross between a wrap, sling and structured front carrier. Coined as the "ready-to-wear" wrap with a unique double-loop design, it enables caregivers to comfortably carry infants to toddlers in multiple positions. There is no other baby carrier like it.
