I saw an awesome segment on ABC news the other night. It was called “Made in America.” This gist is this:

If each of us spent just $64 on American made goods during our holiday shopping, the result would be 200,000 new jobs.

The rallying call is: “ARE YOU IN?” Would you try to buy American-Made products this year at Christmas (and I say beyond) in order to help create jobs for America? I’m in! With so many products made overseas it’s not easy to find American- Made products. So for those of you that “are in,” here is a list of nice products that are Made in the United States.

Great Products Made in America

I’ve done some research for you. I’ve tried to pick out the items that either I have used myself that I really like or ones that look really cool and/or useful. Hope you find the list helpful for your gift shopping. Don’t forget to get something for yourself too! 🙂
