SHOPPING LOCAL FOR BABY: WeeStock Presents Their Fourth Show this Spring

26 March 2012 (Edmonton, AB)

 

Hundreds of new and expecting parents will be shopping locally for their babies and toddlers on Saturday, April 21 at WeeStock Indie & Boutique Baby Show in Edmonton at the Aviation Heritage Centre this spring. WeeStock is a unique show in Edmonton that has been focusing on bringing local, handmade, organic, fair trade, and boutique-quality baby and toddler products and services to young families in the area since its first show in early 2010.

 

“It is really important to shop locally as much as you can”, says WeeStock co-producer Leah Seidl, who owns an independent accessories company called Whimsical Elements. “By keeping money in the community, you help boost the local economy and support small business owners.”

 

Christina, co-producer of the show and the owner of local baby clothing company Golly Gee Baby, adds: “WeeStock is a show featuring a special, curated group of small businesses from Alberta that specialize in baby products and services. By shopping for your baby at WeeStock, you are not only supporting these unique local businesses but you are also getting higher quality products for your child.”

 

WeeStock 2012 Spring Edition will be held at the Aviation Heritage Centre on 11410 Kingsway Avenue in Edmonton on April 21 from 10 am to 4 pm. In addition to a unique shopping experience the show will have a Parent’s Lounge area for baby feeding and changing, a cafe with snacks and drinks, and a reading corner that will feature book readings every half hour by local children’s authors and a local book shop. WeeStock is also supporting an Alexander’s Quest – an Alberta charity that promotes awareness of children’s cancer and grants small wishes to these children. Come early to the show – the first 100 guests will receive an early bird prize bag!

 

WeeStock is proudly presented by LITE 95.7 and is also sponsored by Modern Mama, Urban Chickadee, Cosy Baby Happy Mommy, Natural Urban Mamas, Steve Nagy Photography, Golly Gee Baby and Whimsical Elements.

    I also bought a jersey hat at Wee Stock Spring 2012 and can’t remember the name of the vendor. Is there a previous vendor list somewhere? Or a previous map of where the vendors were located, I remember the general area that the booth was located….

    Thanks!
