Eden’s Green Closet

Eden’s Green Closet, Venice CA

This weekend we dropped by the grand opening of Eden’s Green Closet on Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA. The brainchild of Emily Blakeney, this children's eco store specializes in recycled children's clothing and new organic children's fashion and products. Think of it as a Buffalo Exchange for kids.

If you are a thriftier, like we are, it's fantastic! All the work has been done for you. Emily handpicks every item in the store. Her criteria? “Would I put it on my daughter?” We had a great time going through the racks of cute duds and you can be sure we will be back, not only to buy more, but to resell some of our own kid’s outgrown clothes.

I love it too! Just so you know, I'm doing a free toy testing event. Each person can bring in one toy or other household good - including makeup - and I'll test it with my portable XRF analyzer. It tests for lead, chromium, mercury, etc. Curious whether that favorite toy is toxic? Come and find out. At Eden's Green Closet, 11:00 a.m. on June 4th.
