At least I think it is, I have waded through lots of questions so hope I’m not repeating and if I am please point to the thread with the info. (and double apologies if you find me asking this on Etsy too!)
I make a stuffed collectible, a haggis, which to be honest is never going to be a frequent seller. I know it looks like a toy and I know where to get the pack to self certify for home-made toys. The question I have is for people using such packs to self certify at home, What does it actually involve?
I have a haggis I made for myself 4 years ago that survived kid and dog mauling and I didn’t make it to the standard I make the ones I have up for sale. But there are small parts, it’s hand sewn, the material (tweed) is not washable, and I used recycled stuffing. So I’m thinking on the one hand Xmas is coming and I don’t want to get into trouble for selling things that look like toys without CE marking, but £25 for a pack to CE mark items that will only sell very occasionally kind of puts me off.
I did mail my local trading standards ages ago and got zilcho back.
(I’m hoping my biggest sell time will be to adults when Burns Night looms)
