  • it was ammended to allow for resale of clothing and a few other things. it now only effects things that may contain lead paint (like toys). You can google it. I dont remember where i saw the ammended version.

  • Read the fine print. They are preventing resale and thrift shops from selling "children's products" that contain more than 0.1% lead, and/or those that have been recalled.
    I can not find any where that it says that you can not sell clothes.

    If i am miss reading the statement.. please let me know.. but i just don't see where it says you can not give away or sell clothes.. and other products.. as long as they meet the CPSC guidelines.

    PLEASE.. if i am wrong.. let me know.. i went to the below site for clarification..

  • "While CPSC expects every company to comply fully with the new laws resellers should pay special attention to certain product categories. Among these are recalled children’s products, particularly cribs and play yards; children’s products that may contain lead, such as children’s jewelry and painted wooden or metal toys; flimsily made toys that are easily breakable into small parts; toys that lack the required age warnings; and dolls and stuffed toys that have buttons, eyes, noses or other small parts that are not securely fastened and could present a choking hazard for young children." ~ CPSC
