"Bumps & Babies Fair" this Sunday in Maple Leaf

August 25th, 2010 by Mike

Here’s something quite unexpected – at least, unexpected in a tavern parking lot.

Dozens of baby accessories like the hooded towels above will be for sale from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Roosevelt Ale House, 8824 Roosevelt Way N.E. The sale is this Sunday, Aug. 29.

It’s part of a new event, the Bumps & Babies Fair. Here’s an explanation from the founder:

I’m Michelle Simpson, co-owner (aka wife 🙂 ) of the Roosevelt Ale House, though I haven’t been working there much because I’ve been home with our daughter, Lila, for the last year.  Having some extra time on my hands, in January I started an at-home business making baby accessories (bibs, burp cloths, quilts, belt, etc).

The idea gained momentum. Now featured at the sale is baby gear from boutique sellers including:
* The Chic Bambino, which is Michelle’s company
* J. Shelton Photography
* Ice Ice Binky
* Tiny Toppers
* Tiptoeing Tutus
* Critters by Chris (creater of the towels at top)

In addition there will be new and gently used consignment items from more than 20 families. Learn more at the Bumps & Babies Facebook page.

Oh, and leave your credit cards at home; the sale is cash only.

Now if somebody would tell us why it’s Bumps & Babies….

It's that time of year

February 23rd, 2010 by Mike

The annual Maple Leaf Ace Hardware BYOB sale is this Saturday.

Although it’s usually thought of as “20 percent off everything that fits in a store shopping bag,” the staff will tell you they’re quite a bit more lenient. You can bring your own bag; in fact, fliers arriving in the mail this week advertising the sale show a golf bag stuffed with a rake and shovel.

Power tools and small appliances qualify for only 10 percent off, and some items like grills and lumber aren’t covered – even if you could find a bag big enough.

By the way, the store has a seed-starting demonstration on a counter. You can watch the seedlings grow on its  Facebook page.
