Baby Bazaar Jan. 30 a chance to buy, sell baby items


The town of Silverthorne and the St. Anthony Summit Medical Center present the first annual Baby Bazaar 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 30 at the Silverthorne Pavilion.The bazaar is a community event where parents are encouraged to clean out their baby’s closet and resell slightly used goods at a discounted price.The idea came from Summit County local Pam Holbrook who organized a similar event in 2004 on a smaller scale.”We are supportive of events like the Baby Bazaar that offer parents educational opportunities on child-rearing as well as some affordable options on clothes and toy,” said Carol Turrin, administrator.”Last year, as a mother to be, I was ecstatic when I learned about an opportunity to meet other parents and purchase baby care products at a discounted price,” said Maggie Butler, Silverthorne Pavilion coordinator. “Now, as a mother of a 9-month-old little girl, I am anxious to clear out outfits she barely wore once and find great deals on clothes and toys she will soon be growing into.”The event is free to shoppers. A booth for those wishing to sell goods is $10.The pavilion organizers hope to sell 30 booths so the public will have a large variety from which to choose.In addition to shopping, visitors can learn from speakers covering topics ranging from games to play with infants that foster child development to pre and postnatal care for new moms.Those wishing to reserve a booth should contact Butler at (970) 262-7390. Because of safety concerns, resale of childcare seats will not be permitted. Resale of cribs, playpens and other toys must meet current federal standards.
