    Be careful buying clothes in markets

    Just wanted to remind you:

    While clothes in the market might seem like your getting a great deal. Be sure to check your items for safety. Items might be samples that are rejected due to safety issues such as strings at the hood of a sweatshirt that may be a choke hazard or fire hazard material used.

    Today I noticed the snaps in the crotch part of my babies' onesie had come apart after just one washing. The metal spikes of part of the snap were exposed and crumbly. Metal crumbly and sharp!! I'm lucky i noticed it before she could possibly put it in her mouth. I bought it in Sai Kung and it is "LoveSpun" brand.

    So check your items carefully. That goes for toys too.
