Warehouse Sale to Offer Deisgner Children's Clothing, Nursery Décor, Gifts and More at Discount Prices

Mocksville, NC--- Pure and Honest Kids, an online children’s e-boutique that offers wholesome and age-appropriate clothing, accessories and furnishings, announces its first ever Warehouse Clearance Sale.

Open to the public for four days only, the Pure and Honest Kids warehouse, located at 277 North Main Street in Mocksville, NC, will open its warehouse doors to the public for the first time since launching in September 2007.

Typically, all sales are done online at, but from Thursday, July 24- Sunday, July 27, the warehouse will be open as well for people to shop.

“We wanted a way to introduce Pure and Honest Kids to the local people of Mocksville and surrounding areas, since we are a fairly new company,” said Debbie Koontz, co-owner of Pure and Honest Kids. “What better way to introduce ourselves than to have an unprecedented sale for our local customers, and we get to meet them face-to-face at our warehouse!”

The owners of Pure and Honest Kids aren’t new to Mocksville and the surrounding areas; they are only new to the children’s apparel and nursery décor industry. Koontz founded and owned Ketchie Creek Bakery in Mocksville for more than 25 years, until recently selling it to pursue Pure and Honest Kids full time. Her daughter and co-owner of Pure and Honest Kids, Molly Ridenhour, also worked at Ketchie Creek Bakery until recently.

“Our experience at Ketchie Creek Bakery has us poised and ready to take on the challenge of owning an online children’s boutique,” said Ridenhour. “During our time at the bakery, we developed a desire to offer quality products, superb customer service and acute attention to
detail. We are excited to bring the same level of hard work and dedication to Pure and Honest Kids as we did to the bakery.”

This dynamic mother and daughter team from Mocksville founded Pure and Honest Kids to provide a stylish, high quality, youthful alternative to the big-box department stores and superstores, all with the convenience of online shopping. The web site,, is designed to be a one-stop shopping site for parents, grandparents and loved ones.

“We hope to have many local North Carolina customers come and take advantage of this extraordinary warehouse sale,” said Ridenhour. “And don’t worry! If for some reason you can’t make it, much of our clearance merchandise will also be available online at under the Clearance section after the warehouse sale is over.”

The warehouse sale will be open as follows: Thursday, July 24 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday, July 25 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, July 26 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon; and Sunday July 27 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The premise behind Pure and Honest Kids is Koontz and Ridenhour realized children are impressionable, and they wanted to create a boutique where parents knew they could find age appropriate and wholesome merchandise.

“We want to offer products that encourage kids to be kids- at least for a while,” said Koontz. “For us, that means choosing collections that aren’t too grown up and that exhibit youthfulness, but are still fashionable and chic.”

Distinctive bedding, trendy diaper bags, organic baby clothes, unique toys, striking artwork, whimsical furniture and charming nursery décor are just some of the items available at Pure and Honest Kids. The Web site features collections such as Serena and Lily, Tea, Zaza Couture, Marese and Baby Nay, plus many more.

With the recent concern of leaching chemicals, such as bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates, PVCs and polycarbonates, found in plastic baby bottles, you may be looking for an alternative baby bottle for your darling little one.

Pure and Honest has the perfect bottle solution for you! Created by a feeding specialist and award-winning designer, the Babylife Wee Go Bottle is beautiful, stylish, safe, developmentally-appropriate, eco-friendly, and most importantly, BPA free! The bottles are not only functional, but modern and fun as well!

Available at Pure and Honest Kids, the Wee Go Baby Bottle is made of glass and is totally free of harmful chemicals found in many plastic bottles. Not only that, but the bottles have a new safety twist- the bottle is covered with a colorful silicone sleeve that will help protect the bottle from breakage. This silicone sleeve is also free of plastics and is 100% non-toxic. The sleeve provides a good gripping surface during feeding and also a fun tactile touch for your tot! The bottles and silicone sleeve are safe in both boiling water and in the dishwasher.

The plastic ring contains no poly-carbonates and is made of FDA-approved and food grade plastic, and is also recyclable. Because the bottle cap and ring are made of soft plastic that may not hold up to boiling temperatures, Wee Go Baby Bottles suggests that you hand-wash these parts.

This glass bottle is an excellent choice for many reasons. Glass bottles are made of natural material, easy to clean, and are great insulators. You also do not have to worry about scratching or wear and tear with glass bottles, like you do with plastic bottles, and glass is much better for the environment than plastic.

Babylife is the company responsible for the Wee Go Baby Bottles. Babylife was founded by Pam Marcus and Daren Edward Joy. After working with children for many years as a pediatric physical therapist, Pam saw that many infant products and toys were either designed poorly or had not changed in 20 years. She decided to work with Daren, an integrative designer, to create baby products that are eco-friendly as well as developmentally appropriate. A key component to Babylife’s mission is to educate parents and caretakers about issues that are important to the baby’s well-being.

Wee Go Baby Bottles also includes 100% silicone, non-toxic, latex-free nipples, but can be interchanged with other nipple brands.

There is nothing old fashioned about this bottle. It’s modern and stylish, and most important, it’s safe. You’ll be glad you made the switch to glass. Wee Go Baby Bottles were first released in October 2007, and have sold out many times due to its gaining popularity. They are back in stock at Pure and Honest Kids, and better than ever, so place your order today!

The Wee Go Baby Bottles holds 9 ounces (260ml) and comes in many wonderful sleeve colors, including pink, raspberry, orange, yellow, sky and ocean.

Top 10 Items to Keep In Your Diaper Bag!

A well stocked diaper bag is essential to make outings with your child a success! But what should you put in your trendy diaper bag? Here is a list of Top 10 Items from Pure and Honest Kids that are necessary to have in your diaper bag to make sure you are prepared for whatever comes your way when traveling with baby!
1. Diapers and Wipes
Diaps and wipes are a must and something you’ll probably need every time you leave your home.

Consider packing one to two diapers for every hour you plan on being away from your house, plus an emergency stash! It is better to be safe than sorry, so over pack your diapers!

As for baby wipes, consider keeping them in a hard plastic case, to ensure freshness and that they do not dry out. Remember all the many uses of baby wipes…wiping dirty hands, dirty faces, dirty tables…you get the drift. The more wipes you have, the better!

2. Changing Pad
Having your own changing pad when you are out and about is a good idea! You know where your changing pad has been and can control germs a little better when using your own personal changing pad!

Some diaper bags, such as the Kalencom Cocoa Disco Dots diaper bag (available at Pure and Honest Kids for $60.00) comes with its own matching changing pad! This stylish bag comes with a large coordinating, padded changing pad that folds up neatly in the bag, not taking up a lot of space. A perfect accessory for your diaper bag!

3. Medicines and Diaper Rash Ointment
Keeping your diaper bag stocked with medicines for immunization appointments and fevers that pop up while out is so important! Keep separate fever reduction/pain reliever medications in your diaper bag so you always have what you need while traveling.

Diaper ointment is also a necessity to keep in your diaper bag. You never know when diaper rash will appear, so be ready!

Also consider keeping other medical necessities and safety items in your diaper bag, such as band-aids, nail clippers, antibiotic ointment, tissues, sunblock, and teething gel.

4. Plastic Bags for Wet or Dirty Stuff
Always have a stash of plastic bags in your diaper bag to help keep wet or dirty diapers separate from the rest of the items in your bag. You can buy a plastic bag dispenser (refills available) or you can use stock your bag with sandwich bags or plastic grocery bags.

Some diaper bags also come with its own plastic storage bag for wet or soiled items. The Apple Green Tote from Elegant baby has this feature and is available at Pure and Honest Kids for $42.00.

5. Change of Clothes
Keeping a change of clothes (or two) stored away in your diaper bag is always a good idea, especially those first few months when baby is spitting up quite a bit! Babies are messy, and having a spare outfit readily available will certainly come in handy.

6. Feeding Essentials, Snacks and Juice for Baby and Mommy
Do you ever feel like life with baby revolves around feeding? That’s because it does! Always be prepared with the essential bottles, foods or snacks, depending on the age of your child.
For infants and babies, have readily available bottles, formula or breast milk, as well as water (if you are using formula), additional liquids and baby food.

Some diaper bags come with its own matching bottle insulator. Check out the Caden Lane Mia Backpack diaper bag (available at Pure and Honest Kids for $150.00.) This is a great feature to look for in a diaper bag as you’ll always have a clean, yet cute place to insulate your baby’s bottles!

Snacks, juice and age appropriate food is essential for older children as well. Don’t forget eating child-friendly utensils, placemats and plates, too!

7. Diversions…Books, Toys and Pacifiers
A busy baby is usually a happy baby, so keep plenty of “distractions” in your diaper bag!
Board books are always great to have because they are small in size, but entertaining to your child. You may also want to include favorite toys, teething rings, a blanket and a pacifier, if your child enjoys them!

8. Bibs
You never know when a meal time or snack might pop up while you are out, so it is wise to keep a bib or two in your diaper bags. This will keep your child clean(er) and hopefully prevent you from using that extra pair of clothes you have stored in your diaper bag!

9. Burp Cloth
Inevitably, your baby is going to spit up or drool while you are away from your home, and having a burp cloth tucked away in your diaper bag will certainly come in handy. You’ll be surprised at how useful your burp cloth will become and how often you have to use it.

10. Hand sanitizer
You can always use some hand sanitizer while you are out with your baby to help fight off germs that lurk everywhere. Keep it tucked away in an easily accessible pocket and use it often!

Another tip from Pure and Honest Kids--be sure to keep your diaper bag in the car or by the door so you do not forget it. Your diaper bag is like a MasterCard---don’t leave home with out it!
