We are lucky to have a new vendor in from Monterey, VA! Hand Felted by Lisa :) She hand makes felted booties, mittens and hats in newborn and infant sizes. They are felted on the outside with a cotton (non-itchy!) cotton lining. Come in and check out her creations!
Another vendor, Diane Goodbar, knits up a storm here at On The Turtle's Back and we are holding a holiday give away on her cool knit hats. Receive one hat free when you spend $50 or more this season. They come in many cute color combinations, so come get one while they last.
If you are looking for a stroller this year for your family or for a friend, we have a high quality Peg Perego stroller in navy blue and plaid. This stroller retails for $400 and we have one here for $200! Fits children from infancy until toddlerhood. Made in Italy.
Check out our blog for more in the coming weeks featuring our local vendors and more product highlights. Have a happy and healthy autumn!

Maclaren recalls 1 million strollers
Stroller maker says its umbrella strollers have resulted in the amputation of 12 children's fingertips.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Stroller maker Maclaren announced a recall on Monday that affects about 1 million umbrella strollers that can reportedly amputate or lacerate children's fingertips.
So far, the company said there have been 12 amputations across the country. This happens when children get their fingers stuck in between the stroller's side hinges while it is being opened or closed.
The South Norwalk, Conn.-based company announced the voluntary recall in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and advises customers to stop using the products manufactured in China sold since 1999 at stores including Babies R Us and Target.
Consumers can contact Maclaren at 877-688-2326 or visit www.maclaren.us/recall to receive a free repair kit.
Maclaren said the kit includes hinge covers designed to fit all Maclaren strollers.
