Re: Vancouver Island mama's

I am from Sooke myself. I bought my first CDs (Berry Plushes) from JAMTOTS. I have since found the love of fitteds and buy a lot on FSOT, HC or their own site. Shipping takes 2 weeks though and that sucks!!!

Hi VI mamas!

I'm from Nanaimo! I shopped for my first cd's at Jamtots in Victoria and then I discovered diaperswappers! Now I shop on fsot, hyenacart, spots corner, & etsy to name a few but I also have bought from Abby's Lane in the US. I carry Thirsties brand cd's in my store too, so of course I had to try those!

Re: Vancouver Island mama's

Hey!

I'm in Victoria and I'm very disappointed by the lousy selection in town. I've bought everything online but try to buy from Canadian sites. I'm new to DS, but so far it seems like a lot of people won't ship to Canada

And I hate the slow mail to Victoria! If the shipper says it will take 1-7 days it usually seems to take 8!!!

Oh well, small price to pay for living in paradise

Re: Vancouver Island mama's

Hi Mama's,

I am in Victoria as well. I am surprised to hear a lot of people won't ship to some of you....I have found this site to be the most helpful out of any! So many nice Mama's with great deals! I shopped at Jamtots and found all the styles I liked, and now am on a huge diaper slurge getting a bit of everything for my little boy due in December! I agree we need more local CD's and its always nice to support our Canadian businesses. However, for those of you on a budget like me, whomever has the lowest prices gets my vote. A site I am a big fan of with FREE SHIPPING TO CANADA is www.sewcraftbaby.com and I have ordered from there. I also love Huggabunz and have ordered through that website, super cheap shipping. A lot of the Mama's on here ship to me for no extra cost, or else something really reasonable. I also do the local shopping www.usedvictoria.com, www.craigslist.ca, www.etsy.com, www.myuseddiapers.com, and anything else I can find. Used is the way to go for me as I cannot afford 30 a diapers for the berryplush jamtots which I love. I can get the diaper with insert here for 10-15 usually, and they are worth every penny.
Any new Mama's making CD in Victoria let me know as I would love to support you!
