Buying American Made Matters.
March 13, 2011
Anyone see the ”Made in America” feature on ABC? The story described how almost everything for sale in the Washington D.C. National Gift Shops was made in China, Mexico or some other foreign country.
This included the Smithsonian, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial etc. They gave the impression that selling American made products were impractical, too costly or unobtainable.
The announcer then went across town and visited a craft gallery called Appalachian Spring, who sells ONLY American made products. At that point, they discussed how American jobs could be created by simply including domestic products in just the Smithsonian gift shops alone ( which sold $44 million last year). Little things add up very
So buy American made. Appalachian Spring craft gallery is a shining example of the quality and affordability of American made products. By the way, they have been in business for 43 years, and successfully carrying Carruth Studio sculptures for over a decade.
