A2: Business

On Craftzine.com, Dale Dougherty posts a column he wrote for Craft magazine about how new regulations under the Consumer Protection Safety Improvement Act will affect small craft businesses when the law takes effect in February. He interviews Jason Gold, owner of Camden Rose, an Ann Arbor-based maker of wooden and fabric toys. Says Gold: “We’ve gone from no certification to the strictest form of certification in the world. It might cost me $4,000 to test my rattle.” [Source]
