Local businesses plan event after Modern Baby Expo postponed
La Boutique for Kids and Smart Momma will hold a special event Saturday in Raleigh featuring gear, clothes and information for parents after the Modern Baby Expo is postponed.Posted — Updated
The expo, which was scheduled to start Saturday at the N.C. State Fairgrounds, was to feature toys, clothes, gear and information for new and expectant parents. Organizers emailed exhibitors earlier this month to let them know that it would be postponed because they had not been able to reach their "vendor participation goal," according to the email.
La Boutique will be holding its winter clearance sale with clothing marked down 40 percent to 90 percent off retail. It's holiday fashion show is set for 11 a.m. featuring 20 local kids. There will be free face painting from noon to 2 p.m. by Phoebe & Tillie's Princess Parties.
Tutwiler, a birth doula, will share information on ways to sooth a crying or colicky baby at 1 p.m. And Heather Burns, owner of Smart Momma, will demonstrate different baby carrier options and how to use each one of them at 1:30 p.m.
There also will be a drawing for a couple of prizes and some more activities. And they've shared the coupon below with me. So be sure to bring this with you if you go.
