Congratulations to Marlo Hoffman and Lisa Starbuck, co-founders of PsychoBaby in Chicago that celebrated its seventh anniversary earlier this May! This one-of-a-kinda-crazy brick and mortar kids’ store also now counts the Internet as its worldwide territory. The store is fun, funky, wild, original and a celebration of all things that are hipper, cooler, trendier, edgier and as unique as children’s individual personalities and creative outlooks.

Happy Heineys Celebrates Earth Day with Reusable Diapers
Happy Earth Day! Today is the best day to share some photos of some celebrity babies who are going green, with a little help from mom and dad of course. Happy Heiney’s, a reusable diaper company, is forever working to inform new parents just how easy Happy Heineys reusable diapers are and one of the easiest ways for them to do so is to show off some adorable picture of some of their favorite celebrity tots. Several of these moms have clearly stated that “If I can do it anyone can do it!” There just is no excuse anymore for not using reusable diapers.
One of The Chicago Market team’s many goals is to ensure that there are as many buyers as possible shopping the aisles in July. We use direct mail, e-mail, social media and more to inform buyers of any and all resources that will be available to them in July. We promote the market as a whole — but we offer numerous ways you can promote yourself at The Chicago Market exclusively!
Here are just a few easy ways to promote yourself at The Chicago Market:
Be apart of The Chicago Market’s fasting growing kids section where fun, function, fashion and accessories cover newborns through teens.
Industry research has proven that buyers are shopping closer and closer to home. It’s so important to have a presence in Chicago because our buyer base pulls from the 15 core Midwest states - that’s over 100,000 people! Does your product have a presence in the Midwest?
