I'm tired of Made in China on everything. I'm tired of wondering how far my stuff has come to get to me. I'm tired of cut rate costs meaning cut rate products, but since they ALL suck there isn't much that complaining can accomplish. Until, that is, someone actually listens. I'm on a hunt to start making my home an American Made home, and there is one place I'm starting: All American Clothing Co. I know almost nothing about them, and haven't shopped them yet, but I'm so willing to spend a little more to buy from a home team. And guess what? A lot of their stuff isn't more expensive. They have tees starting at $9, not bad.
One of these days I will stop being moved by people that don't care about my stuff, and I will be willing to spend good money on good furniture. I'm already saving for Stickley's gorgeous heirloom furniture. I once watched John Ratzenberger stand inside a drawer still in the dresser on his show, Made in America.
I'm not getting paid to talk about these manufactures, and I'm not getting free product. In fact, they have no idea who I am or that I'm writing about them. That isn't the point, the point is that I'm looking to vote with my dollars to bring back manufacturing to American shores. To make our nation, once again, a strong nation of hardworking builders that bring more to the world than just the latest Ap.
So, any other thoughts out there? Any American manufactures that you want to pass on?
