The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) has killed another toy store and put more people out of work.  After 28 years of selling toys, the Essence of Nonsense toy store closed its doors forever.  According to Pioneer Press “Many of the small European toymakers she relied on for her unique product mix are no longer shipping to America because of lead testing requirements.”  See “Beloved Minnesota store The Essence of Nonsense Closed by the Essence of Nonsense.”
