January Booty Buddies Co-Op

Okay here we go! I hope you have all been waiting for this as much as I have :) Here is how it will work:

- On Friday January 11, I will announce in the BST page when I will post the thread to sign up. It will be that day but you will get plenty of notice of when to be back in order to get your name on the list because I am only going to take 15 people this time to see how this goes.

- The first 15 people to comment will be obligated to their part in cooperating with me in placing their order. If someone backs out I can't replace them so be sure you are committed when you enter. These 15 people will be given a link to a form to fill out. Each person can only order up to 3 pair of Booty Buddies maximum up to size 12

-I will provide you with the fabric choices in advance before you sign up so everyone knows the fabric possibilities to choose from that way you can decide if you want to try to sign up or not. There will be 3 boy prints and 3 girl prints. You will also be able to choose your waistband and leg cuffs.

- The price of one pair of Booty Buddies is $10 up to size 6. $12 per pair from size 7-12. The sizes to choose from are 2T- 12. Shipping will be separate but included in your invoice.

- The co-op will be from January 14-January 31. I will invoice the first 5 people who signed up first. First to pay will be made first. I will do one person's order per day per week during those 3 weeks. So remember first come first serve when it comes to fabric availability, the quicker you fill out your form and the quicker you make your payment the better chance you have.

- If this goes smooth and easily on my end and yours, I will do this again if the demand is there.

Thank you and I can't wait to do this! This will not interfere with stocking schedules. And there will be a stocking every Wednesday this month.

New Soaker System and a Word on Stockings

The new soaker system has been made into 2 different sizes. One for the In Betweeners size and another for the One Size diaper. They are made up of the following:

1 layer of regular weight bamboo fleece
1 hidden layer of hemp
1 layer of heavy weight bamboo fleece

Panel Soaker:
Topped with matching velour
Hidden layer of regular weight bamboo fleece
1 layer of regular weight bamboo fleece

The layout and the fabric contents remain exactly the same as the previous soaker system. The changes made include: size, shape and snap placement. The fuzzy side of the fleece is now exposed on the UNDERSIDE of both soaker pieces.

Hidden snaps, so no exposed snaps touch baby
Contoured for less bulk between baby's legs
Panel soaker covers entire row of Fold Down Rise (FDR) snaps
Extra wide double at the bum area for extra coverage in the back
Panel soaker provides extra protection for boys and tummy sleepers

Contoured for better fit. Fuzzy side of bamboo fleece is exposed on one side to help determine which way the soaker folds in half and snaps in.  In the photo below, the In Betweeners is on top so that you can see the length difference to accomodate the size of the diaper.

The length of the doubler matches up with the length of the panel soaker.

Stocking New Soaker Systems:

Next week I will stock 5 pre order new soaker systems. I will do only 5 at a time and then take another 5 once those are completed. I realize that these will be desired after the small batch of soaker systems that went out last month that had exposed snaps on the panel soaker I am going to reduce the price from the normal $15 soaker system price to $12 for a while. 

**Important, once you have pre ordered your soaker system, you will have 2 hours from the time I send you the form the fill out for you system to return the form to me.

These will start next Wednesday the 12th along with a few ornaments.


Starting in January 2013:

*Customs will be available again.  I will list 2 custom slots per month. There will be new guidelines in place regarding customs under the listing that must be agreed to upon purchase. Customs diapers require extra time and effort than a regular in stock ready to ship diaper. Beginning in 2013 the price of In-Stock and SYOF customs will increase. Customs will ship within 14 days which will require all of your information regarding the wishes of your custom within 2 days. Fabric for SYOF's will have a 1 week period to arrive to me.

Accessories will restock in a few quantities at a time until those orders are filled and then I will restock more:
Hip Snaps
Fleece liners
Soaker Systems

Mini stockings will continue every Wednesday and Large stockings will continue back on their Wednesday night schedules on the last Wednesday of the month.

Shipping rates may go up if and when national shipping rates go up in February

Also beginning in January, ready to ship diapers will ship within 24 hours for most stockings. Occasionally there may be a stocking when they cannot ship for up to 5 days at the very most.

I will also continue to give away one free diaper a month.

Please remember that you may contact either George Kane, Elizabeth Benoit, Annelise Pyne through facebook if you cannot get into contact with me.

Feel free to leave your comments below and thank you all again so very much for your support!
