bump it up

Last night Bitsy was honored to be included in an amazing event...

Lindsay Pinchuk of Bump Club and Beyond along with Jamie Grayson The Baby Guy NYC hosted an incredible evening at Magic Beans in Fairfield, CT. Gearapalooza - the ultimate baby gear + registry event - is exactly what mamas-to-be and new mamas need! The evening allowed expectant mamas and new mamas the opportunity to check out baby gear, network and basically get excited about what is to come. Baby gear vendors were on-hand to share about their product features and answer questions (oh boy - or girl! - did we learn a lot!). Jamie shared an incredible low-down of his extensive (and beyond impressive!) knowledge on all baby gear. Let's just say the man is amazing. You MUST check out his website.

In case you don't know - Bump Club and Beyond is the first and only social event company for expectant and new moms in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, TX and Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN. If you don't see your neck of the woods listed here, don't fret! Bump Club's website shares a large network for moms around the country (world!) to share, learn, chat, etc. Also, Lindsay and her team host Gearapaloozas nationwide, so definitely check out Bump Club's website to find an event near you.

Jamie Grayson is The Baby Guy NYC. Aside from being hysterical and super fun to be around, his passion lies in baby gear. Yup. He knows EVERYTHING about everything baby gear. His website should always be in your back pocket. Trust us, we're not sure how we did this mommy thing without him ever!

Gearapalooza was held at the Magic Beans store in Fairfield, CT. This is their first store outside of Massachusetts. They, too, have a wonderful website you can check out (and a blog - Spilling the Beans), but if you live locally (MA or CT) definitely pop in to a store. We were completely enamored with the Magic Beans staff's knowledge, friendliness and passion. Your shopping experience will be one of the best ever, we promise.

Bitsy thanks all of these folks for sharing their knowledge, experiences + passions with the rest of us. We love being a part of something marvelous!!!!
