Announcing my new store! :)

I'm happy to announce my new store (through CafePress) - Attached At The Hip - is NOW online!

Attached At The Hip sells primarily advocacy clothing, stickers, buttons, etc. with logos that promote attachment parenting ideals such as breastfeeding, baby wearing, gentle discipline, natural birthing and more.

I also offer some non-AP logos for announcing an expected baby (I'm going to be a big brother/sister shirts) and crunchy/granola attire for mamas and the whole tree-hugging family. In addition, there are shirts for domestic "divas" and "goddesses."

I'm very excited to get this off the ground and, while I am hoping it will be a profitable venture for me, I am also just glad to be spreading the word about attachment parenting.

The awesome thing is that most everything is handled through CafePress. They take the orders, they print the shirts/merchandise, they collect the money, they ship the product, they handle returns, etc. The bad thing about that is that they make most of the money. ;) But every little bit I make will help. :)

I'm currently offering a special of $5 off any purchase of $50 or more. Use coupon code: B2SALE when you check out.

Please feel free to give it a look-see and let me know what you think. If you have any ideas on how I can improve upon it, I am all ears. :)

Also, CafePress is planning on starting an affiliate program in September so if anyone is interested in linking to my store and making some money off any sales you generate, let me know. :)

Thanks for letting me share.

I love the SUPPLY and DEMAND logos. Too cute!

I have a CafePress store too. But just for fun.

Check it out:

I like your whole set up. Looks very professional I just did the very basic Cafe Press template thingy.

You should make up flyers and post them at your ped's and maybe at birthing centers, pass them out at playgroups, etc.

Good luck with your new venture!

That's GREAT! I passed the link onto a friend who practices attachment parenting. No kids for me yet, but I intend to attachment parent as well as breast feed, sling, co-sleep, etc...

I love your new site!
It has products very much like some ideas I've had rolling around in my head. How industrious of you.
Oh, and I hope its O.K. that I placed a link to your store on my page. I figured the more traffic the better?
