Fuzzi Bunz: a pdx wild-goose chase
I used Fuzzi Buzz dipes for our second daughter. We love them through and through! Now that our second girl is now out of diapers (yipee!), we want to keep the fuzzi bunz love going.
As one of those 'stretched to the limit' sorta mamas (yeah, whatever), I had 1 hour last Friday to find a coupla fuzzis as a gift at a colleague's baby shower. I checked the Fuzzi website to find that there were only two Fuzzi retailers in Oregon: one in Eugene and one in Grants Pass (which is where I made one big original fuzzi order way back when). I thought to myself, "what the????" I could've sworn that at least one Portland kiddie shop carried the Fuzzis. I surfed onto Mother Nature's and saw that they carried Fuzzis. BUT, did they have any? Alas, a call over to Mother Nature's told me there were no Fuzzis to be had. In fact, I was told that Fuzzi Bunz hadn't fulfilled an order for months and months and that Fuzzi-luvin' parents were frantically trying to find them all throughout the Portland area! I was surprised at the story. The last bit of info from our conversation was that only one other retailer carried the Fuzzis in Portland, a primarily-online retailer BabyWorks.
It was 11:10 am and I was on SE Clinton and I had to find the Fuzzi Bunz (size medium, preferably in bright colors!) and get back to the office (such a fun-filled place for a baby shower!) by 11:30. I 411-ed BabyWorks, confirmed availability of my needs, and zipped on over to a live/work space in the NW. When I walked into BabyWorks, I was in awe at this treasure! Organic cotton baby layettes, varied diapering systems, beautiful diaper bags.... and the oh-so important flushable Kushi diaper liners, which - until today - we've only been able to find at two Portland stores (Mother Nature's and Milagros). I felt lucky that we had this online shop headquartered in Portland.
The women at BabyWorks were helpful and very busy. I arrived at the baby shower at 11:34 am, with a package of a bright orange fuzzi and a bright red fuzzi, each stuffed with a Mother of Eden fleecy liner.
All of this to say: uMamas, BabyWorks is awesome! Since they are primarily online retailers, their retail hours are limited, so check the website for details.
