Fluff Talk Thursdays....My favorite Cloth Diaper Stores!!!
I haven't shopped at a LOT of different cloth diaper stores, but I also don't have one favorite. I REALLY like getting Free shipping when I shop online & I try to only buy on sale when I shop locally. I've also recently discovered a couple GREAT cloth diaper related sellers on Etsy.
RG Natural Babies stocks LOTS of great brands & frequently has Free Shipping. I also received my first ever sample of Soap Nuts when I ordered from their store & was instantly hooked. The shipping was lightening fast & the customer service was fabulous, so they are now the first place I look when I want to try something new.
Abby's Lane offers Free Shipping on all US orders. I ordered my Rumparooz diaper from them because it was the only place I could find it with Free Shipping, I was thrilled with how quickly my order came & now consider it my #2 favorite anytime I'm in search of a new variety of cloth diaper.
Kelly's Closet is another cloth diaper store on my list of favorites. I've made several purchases from them & always been happy with what I've received. They frequently have sales and coupon codes, I highly recommend signing up for their newsletter to receive coupon information by e-mail. They also have a weekly cloth diaper related giveaway on their blog!
I'm fortunate to have the option of buying at a local brick & mortar store. The advantages to buying locally are: 1.Support my local economy 2. See & touch the product in person before buying 3. Instant gratification of walking out the door with my purchase. The disadvantages are: 1. Limited options 2. 10% local sales tax 3. Temptation to buy more than I should. The very first place I bought cloth diapers was Cutie's Tooties in Knoxville. The store only stocks a limited number of brands, but they are reasonably priced, good quality brands. She also has a play area for the kids which makes shopping a little easier. I receive her e-mail newsletter & like to visit her store at least once every couple months to see the new products she is stocking & to browse her clearance & gently used items.
I know I mentioned Etsy in my opening paragraph, but I'm going to leave you hanging for now. I'll be posting about my recent Etsy finds very soon, so stay tuned! Be sure to visit Happily Domestic, she has a linky up for more posts about Favorite Cloth Diaper stores!
