Loveless Custom Boots (Oaklahoma City, OK). Whether you’re a cowboy/cowgirl or city slicker hankerin’ for your very own custom (city style) made boots, this is a place you may want to check out.  These folks can literally make any style boot you might want. But be forewarned: they’ll run you about $700, plus the cost of a measuring kit ($35).  And don’t go thinkin’ this can happen overnight (remember, this isn’t Beijing…). Plan on 4-6 months for delivery.

American Apparel (Los Angeles, CA): This brand’s website is overtly offensive, so I won’t link to it. Such a shame, as the company’s vertically integrated business model is exemplary. I include AA because its clothing is (other than “vintage” line) 100% made in USA.

    Teens,

    LOVE the new resource link! It is unbelievable how many folks want to join the effort that you have so valiantly started. Not easy to do but it gives one a good feeling to make the USA decision.

    Thanks for sharing the information about the American hero. I have been disturbed by all the ‘glee’ at the death of bin Laden. I prefer to focus on the fact that bin Laden is getting his ‘justice’ at the hand of God.

    Cheers,
    Nancy

    Thanks you for your good work!

    I was looking for shoe inserts and found that all the Dr. Scholls insert were made in China. Fortunately, I found excellent products made right here is the USA.

  9. Rachel says:

    I’ve found several made in USA products at Party City including paper plates and plastic table clothes.

  10. Carolyn says:

    Shoes are one of the few items we wear that can be purchased in the United States that are still “Made in the USA” by American workers. Yesterday I bought a pair of sandals by SAS (San Antonio Shoes) made by Americans in Texas. They are good quality shoes and are very comfortable and attractive as well. It is not widely known that there are actually many other companies that still make quality shoes in the USA.

    American made shoes often cost more than foreign made shoes. But when you consider the high unemployment rate in the USA and the resulting high cost of unemployment compensation, the cheap price of those foreign made products don’t look like such a bargain after all.

    In the kitchen areas I just ordered cake plates from Mosser Glass–all items made here in the US.

  13. Jim says:

    Great site! I will be consulting it in the future. I thought you might like to know a company that you have omitted. Moots Bicycles are made in Steamboat Springs CO. Keep up the good work.

  14. Josie says:

    Love this website. It has made me much more aware of Buying American. I grew up in a household where we were encouraged to buy locally. My parents made sure that my siblings and I understood that this was the best way to keep our community strong and growing.

    Check out http://www.NordicWare.com. Ever wonder who brought us the bundt pan….
    This company has long been a proponent of manufacturing in the USA and they have also made it a point that their suppliers are as well. Their kitchen products are great. I have a number of them and swear by them……

    Keep up this great blog!

  15. stephanie james says:

    I buy the cutest lunch bags for my daughter from Mimi the Sardine (made in San Rafael, CA) check them out they have lots of neat stuff.

  16. stephanie james says:

    My DH just bought a Vitamix and it’s my new favorite toy….made in the USA.

    • Tina Polito says:

      Stephanie,

      Thanks ever so much for the tip about Vitamix / your new favorite toy–and kudos to your DH!

      I just gave the company a call. Looking forward to sharing more info with readers about this exemplary Ohio-based business. I think FLOTUS Mrs. O should hold a press conference and do a demo using Vitamix machine. It would serve a multi-pronged purpose:

      1) underscore her healthy eating / “Let’s Move!” campaign
      2) remind Americans that we still manufacture great appliances here
      3) encourage them to Buy American
      4) begin a “Let’s Move the Economy!” campaign
      5) send out high-fives to a company that’s putting people to work, infusing captial into the system, and apparently determined to keep manufacturing its product here.

  17. Lee says:

    Still loving this blogsite! Everyday, I figure out something that the family needs or wants to have and your resources page is the perfect place to find those things. Thank you again for putting this up. Also, I am discovering through the pages that some of the goods are offered in brick and mortars around me, making me all like double YAY! I wouldn’t have known this in my pre-CAMJ days unless, I had looked at every label in the store. Now, I don’t have to because I know what brands I am looking for before I even walk into the store. So inadvertently, you have also saved me some time. Go Tina, keep it up. I’m rooting for you and the American worker.

  18. Marcus says:

    Love what you have done. I am just curious as to how many Congress reps are supporting our efforts to keep everything in America. We need to support one another. I don’t see many products produced in the South or Southeast. I wonder if there are any

  19. Carolyn says:

    Some examples of great American wines:

    1. Mirassou 2008 – Cabernet Sauvignon from California for about $10.

    2. California Chardonnay: Kendal Jackson Vitner’s Reserve 2008 – $12,
    Bogle 2008 – $9, and Yosemite Road 2008 – $4 only at 7-Eleven stores.

    3. California Pinot Grigio: Estancia 2008 – $12, and Venetian Moon 2008 – $6.

    4. Pinot Noir wines from California:
    Estancia 2008 -$15, Redtree 2008 – $9, Angeline 2008 – $12, Castle Rock California Cuvee 2009 – $10, and Black Mountain Painted Ridges 2008 – $7.

    5. Apple wine from Door Peninsula Winery in Wisconsin called Hallowine – $10.

    6. Cabernet from Door County, Wisconsin called Untouchable Red by Simon Creek Vineyards -$10.

  20. Carolyn says:

    My friend, Gayl, has started a home based jewelry business at this website:
    http://www.etsy.com/shop/Gayl1956?order=price_asc&page=1

    Gayl makes most of her jewelry at her home in Palos Park, Illinois.

  21. Tammy Cooper says:

    Just want to say that I found made in the USA socks at Target. Couldn’t believe my eyes

  22. Kristen says:

    REI.com has a feature where you can filter your search by “Made in the USA.” Makes shopping a lot easier!

    • Tina Polito says:

      Hi Kristen,

      Yes, that’s awesome. Actually, most retailers now offer the same feature online. So helpful. Sometimes depressing. But always a time-saver. I’m still on the hunt for affordable, great looking women’s boots. Munro makes great shoes–Made in the USA–but the leather boots they make that I want cost about $400 at Nordstrom…I’m waiting for them to go on sale…

      Thanks for the tip!

  23. Carolyn says:

    Element Electronics is bringing TV Manufacturing back to the US in March 2012.

    “Startup Element Electronics has announced the grand opening and initial production of its new flat screen TV factory in Detroit. According to the manufacturer, TV production is scheduled to begin in March this year.

    The American manufacturer said that it is able to produce larger screen size LCD and LED TV sets in the U.S. essentially at the same prices as units made in China (when comparing same sizes and features).”

  24. Brenna says:

    Hi Tina,

    Great to hear you read. What a wonderful project. I’ve tried to avoid “Made in China” but haven’t focused on “Made in the USA” just yet. Very ambitious.

    I saw a news clip the other day on Hanky Panky. They make lovely intimate apparel and are expanding. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they’ve kept manufacturing in the NYC metro area for all of these years. Please check them out and think about adding them to your list of resources.

    http://www.hankypanky.com

    Thanks for doing this!

    • Tina Polito says:

      Thanks for the tip, Brenna! According to its website, Hanky Panky has been manufacturing products in the Northeast / USA since 1977! Wow, how had I missed this company? Awesome.

      And thanks so much for coming to my reading at St. Mary’s College. Wonderful to see you.

      Happy Mother’s Day!

  25. Erin Oliver says:

    Check out Maruca Design – cute purses and bags handmade in Boulder, CO. They design their own fabrics which are all milled in the USA!

    Just discovered your blog today and will be sharing with lots of friends!

  26. Carolyn says:

    My husband bought a new sprinkler, soaker hose at Ace hardware store today. I checked the package to see where it was made. I was so happy to find the words “Manufactured in the U.S.A. by A.M. Andrews Co.” on the back of the package.

    A.M. Andrews Co. is located at
    4621 S.W. Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy.
    Portland, OR 97221
    Tel. (503) 244-1663

  27. Kate says:

    I ordered some shirts from Heart Threads Clothing who advertise themselves as made in the US. The first words I read when I opened the package were “made in China”.

    I reread their website carefully and their FAQ reads:

    Where are the shirts manufactured?
    Made in the USA… HeartThreads shirts are made with love and integrity in our state-of-art sewing facility in North San Diego, California. The Supima cotton is grown in Central California in the San Joaquin Valley. The fabric is knitted in Los Angeles and the shirt is constructed in San Diego. We are proud of our low carbon footprint of about 500 miles from start to finish.

    I called and talked with the owner, Scott Wilson, who says they are “transitioning” to all made in the US. I told him their website said nothing about that. We looked at the individual shirts listings and one said nothing about where it was made and the other actually said “made in the USA”! That was pretty outrageous.

    He apologized and is giving me a refund and paying for shipping the shirts back which is slightly better but I’m still disappointed overall. (They were great shirts, too.)

    • Tina Polito says:

      Kate,

      The CAMJ investigative journalism award of the day–ok, maybe even the week, month or year–goes to you! Awesome job. I’ll look into this further, thanks to you. In the meantime, I’m dropping the company from my Resources list.

      It’s infuriating to hear, especially given the quality of the product and your desire to purchase it.

      UPDATE: Kudos to Scott at Heartthreadsclothing.com. After Kate’s inquiry (and a follow-up conversation with me), Scott worked with his webmaster to insure that all merchandise is properly labeled. Happy to report I can once again include a link to this company on my Made in USA Resources list. Thanks to all concerned!
