    In researching apparel production houses for a few of my standard items, I was comitted to staying made in the USA and using as many supplies made in the USA as well. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of clothing producers in my backyard (NJ, NY, PA) let alone the USA. And these houses were staffed by legal workers. With air conditioning no sweatshops for me! I am comitted to buying as much domestically produced items as possible for both my business as well as my private life.

    This is a TV news blip about a house in Bozeman Montana that was built 100% with American made products...down to the nails. You have to watch the little 30 sec advertisement first before the "rest of the story"

    Well I collect vintage Christmas ornaments and my favorite from the 50's was originally made in Japan. And I prefer German made camera lenses. Canadian made products are ok in my book too.
    But sorry, Breyers are now made in China....a big reason why I won't buy them any more.

    I make a big effort to buy USA made products and 90% of all my Christmas gifts were USA made. I just saw a TV news show that said it was the "in" thing to do this year, good, so now I'm trendy.
    Granted, we're talking about brooms & mops (Libman) steel garbage cans, bird feeders, candles and everyone's favorite Thorlo socks. But I even received Martha Stewart pillows from Macy's made in Ohio! Martha makes a big effort to have her line made in USA, first at KMart, now at Macy's. There's a lot of US made furniture, including mattresses and quite a bit of steel items, like hangers and decorative items to be found.
    Where we fail is in plastic novelties, toys, appliances and definitely clothing.
    I travel all around the US and make a point to visit factories & get factory tours. I only wish there were more.

    And for all the auto manufacturers mentioned here... Yes they are maybe made here (good for jobs) but when they are sold here, does all the $$ stay in this country or is it sent off shore to the parent company.

    Not always a straight forward decision for sure.

    Those are significant employers. I'm interested in the fact that they provide good jobs. Le Shrug.

    I don't believe all Breyer horses are made in the US.... Not sure if that was what Breyer you meant though!

    Made right here in Bristol, TN: Pointer Brand work clothing.

    Think all electronics come from abroad? Two manufacturers of cutting edge communications gear are built in the USA, Ten-Tec and Elecraft.

    Very little is actually made in the USA. There is a catch to the "Made in USA" labels too. If it's made or constructed in a U.S. Protectorate, then it's can be labelled with "Made in the USA", but my understanding is that many of those locations are not using U.S. labor laws and are basically sweatshops too.

    And the electronics or other items that say U.S. made, most of the time everything for it is imported, and the final assembly (such as putting the outside on the computer), and the boxing, are the only two things done in the U.S.

    Kia cars and SUVs are made in GA, I think at West Point, GA.

    Don't forget many so-called American made cars are from overseas components too. They called my Ford Escort a "World Car" for a reason, since virtually everything on it came from all over. And my Dodge Spirit was assembled in Mexico. My Honda Element was made in the US though.

    I bumped into my veterinarian at Wal Mart last night. We were both buying light bulbs. She said "oh the chinese curly light bulbs"? I asked if you could even get light bulbs made in the US, she said Sylvania are but they don't make the new ones.

    Then asked me if I even thought they would give me any savings. Well a 100 watt bulb equivalent uses 23 watts. So I guess i can have four light bulbs on of the new ones.

    Almost everything she buys is made in the US and she refuses to purchase from China.

    Most Breyer model horses are made in China, now. the only ones still made in the US are really low run (and expensive) stuff- raffle models, test models, etc.

    We made our first pair of running shoes in 1938 and hold the distinction as the only company that still manufactures athletic shoes in the USA. One out of every four pair of shoes we sell in the U.S. is made or assembled here. Where the domestic value is at least 70% we have labeled them 'Made in the USA.'

    I would never use the weird curly lightbulbs, even after the threar to get rid of the incandescent light bulb. Those curly ones were supposed to save energy be cheaper and last longer, First there is a bio hazard warning on the package that they contain mercury and a big long detailed thing of how to clean them.. And they have terrible light, and they do not last at all. I have incandescent that have worked for years. and are used regularly.
    I do use Dove soap, and suave Shampoo. And Tetley Tea. Did you mean Breyers Ice Cream? I like that, when I ever eat ice Cream.
    Clothes seem to be harder to find. I will have to start researching.
    Lots of talk of Cars.. My Jeep used to be an American symbol, I shudder to think where they are made now.
