New law restricts re-sale of kid's products Does anyone know about this?

A new federal law is raising concerns and questions nationwide and here in Austin. On Feb. 10, 2009 it will be illegal to re-sell any used children's products toys and clothing.According to the U.S. CPSC who pushed for the new laws after dozens of toys were recalled in 2008 because of lead concerns. Toys, clothing and other items used by children under 12 will be subjected to lead testing and will have to have labels on them to prove that they have passed inspection. What is raising the ire of parents and business owners far and wide is what this will mean to clothing, toys and other children products made before February 10, 2009.Gary the owner of Once upon a Child, a resale shop specializing in children's clothing and other items, is afraid that he'll have to close up shop.
