 So you gonna go?? Samantha is giving away a $20 gift certificate towards the sale. $20 towards kid gear, who wouldn't want that! First Samantha is going to tell us about herself and Bella Kids. Take it away Samantha.

Tell us about yourself and how you started your business.

I am Mom to 4 kids, a girl and 3 boys (in that order), 7, 5, 3 and almost 1. I have lived in Alaska almost 11 years now having moved here from Virginia after I met my husband. The idea for starting Bella Kids began after hearing about seasonal sales from our sister-in-law who frequents a large seasonal sale in the Portland, OR area. She would buy items that I needed for my kids and ship them up for me. We decided that Alaskan parents and grandparents would love the chance to shop and sell at a seasonal sale and thus Bella Kids was born.

When are your events?

Our first event is April 21-23, 2012 at the Palmer Depot in Palmer [:)] . Volunteers, Consignors and New Moms have the opportunity to shop early (please see our website for more details). To start we will be having our events twice a year, in the spring and fall.

What do you love about Alaska?

Alaska is a great place to have and raise kids. We have the modern conveniences of living in an urban area yet we have the wilderness in our backyard with great hiking, camping, fishing and more, along with spectacular scenery. My favorite time of year Alaska is summertime and camping with my family down on the Kenai Peninsula where we take part in our extended family's commercial fishing operation.

 Okay here is the deal, in order to win, you obviously have to live in Alaska. Follow the rules and you have several chances to win! Be sure you will be attending the event! Giveaway closes Tuesday at midnight! Support Local!

  4. Sorry, had to remove my last answer because I didn't realize there was a specific question to answer! I would be shopping for 3T girls clothing and shoes. It would also be nice to find some good toys, like maybe a big set of wooden blocks, for my daughters birthday the next weekend! I'm definitely going to the sale anyway, but it would be great to win a gift certificate.

  5. Looks like so much fun!
    But I would def be buying baby clothes and baby items for my little girl, she's due in June.
    I also have a 2 year old that needs clothes, possibly toys. (:

  6. I will be looking for 12 mo.~2t clothes and toys for my big six mo. old girl.

  7. Choosing clothes or outfits for kids is very difficult task and specially for baby girls mostly people get confused but the range you have is very helpful in selecting the clothes easily.

  8. I would buy clothes for my daughter, and toys, books, etc.

  9. We can't wait to get some clothes for our first boy on the way! Great timing of this sale :)

  10. I'm a first time grandma and I'm already watching for baby sales. Not arriving till December but it will go fast.

  11. Looking for the larger items -like car seats, swings, bassinet and/or crib. So many things for a little tiny person! Maybe some non-gender specific clothing too. too early to know if its a boy or girl.

  12. Shopping for girls sizes 5/6 and boys 3t....need summer and winter! Can't wait to check out the sale!

  13. i would buy clothes and toys for my grand daughter!
