Bumps & Babies Fair is this weekend

It’s time again for the bi-annual Bumps & Babies Fair, which started in the parking lot of Maple Leaf’s own Roosevelt Ale House but has since moved into a bigger space at the Bitter Lake Community Center Annex, 13040 Greenwood Ave. N.

The fair, which features children’s boutiques and consignment items, is the brainchild of Roosevelt Ale House co-owner Michelle Simpson, who also runs a small business that will be featured at the Fair, The Chic Bambino.

Other businesses include: J. Shelton Photography, Pepperjack Home, The N.E.W. Project and Suspended Recreation. But there are also opportunities to both buy and sell in the consignment sale, which features gently used kids clothes, toys and baby equipment. The website touts:

Shoppers can outfit their children at a fraction of what they would spend in retail stores. Set your own prices, prep and tag your items, then drop them off with us and we’ll do the rest!

The fair is from 5-8 p.m. Saturday, April 14, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 15, with a discount sale starting at 3 p.m. Sunday. If you’d like to be an early bird, all you have to do is participate as a vendor or volunteer, which gives you a pre-sale pass to shop from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Saturday.
