Spook-tacular Sweepstakes Giveaway #9 CONTEST CLOSED

Happy Launch Day, Hippos Toes!!

A good friend of mine introduced me to Carole who is launching her new eboutique TODAY called Hippos Toes. Here is what she had to say about her new venture on her blog:

“Hippos Toes features fair trade children’s clothing made in South Africa by Bug Zoo. I am passionate about the clothing the difference Hippos Toes/Bug Zoo is making in women’s lives. The women that make these unique and adorable children’s clothing are mom’s that have very limited income opportunities in South Africa. They very much enjoy the opportunity to use their skills to make these adorable, whimsical and fun children’s clothes. They are paid fair wages and work under good working conditions, which are not easy to find in their country.

The clothing designs are typically nature inspired to bring awareness and love of our natural environment to your child. The designs change every season (spring and fall). I have already had the opportunity to preview the spring ’09 line and it is just as adorable as the fall ’08 line.
The quality of the garments is also top notch.”
