Fellow Travelers

It is always nice to discover like-minded people.

For the past nine months, I have been blogging about how we can create jobs in this country by purchasing consumer goods made by members of our extended American family.  I am also writing a book on the same subject titled Simply American, Putting our Extended American Family Back To Work.  To my immense satisfaction, I have discovered lots of bloggers who have the same concerns I have and these people are incredibly helpful in helping you and I find American options for virtually any product you need to buy.  Here are some of my favorite “fellow travelers.”

USA Love List

The USA Love List is the pride and joy of Sarah Wagner.  Sarah and her six-person team are committed to finding great products made in States and adding them to the USA Love List catalog.  Sarah will be featuring a guest post from me soon on ten great products made in Washington State and I will be featuring a Q&A with Sarah in the next few weeks on my blog.

Clothing Made in USA blog

This blog is the passion of Jack A.  Jack is a frequent commenter on my blog.  Jack’s blog is encyclopedic when it comes to finding the clothing you want that is made on our shores.  Jack’s blog has a great mix of content: Interviews, notices re sales, in-depth discussions of clothing such as dress shirts, and careful analysis of important issues such as globalization and outsourcing.  I really recommend you visit Jack’s blog if you want to get the scoop on American made clothing.

Made in USA blog

The Made in USA blog is a very useful blog because of its many links to American made consumer goods firms.  At the Made in USA blog I found a firm making boxers (sorry, again about the boxers!) in the U.S., stylemarq cool boxers, and a great Made in America estore, luxeandliberty.

USA Made

The posts on this blog are somewhat sporadic but this blog has two things going for it.  First, the lists on this blog to firms are really terrific.  A good example is Mary Beth’s Shoes & Boots link.  Second, Mary Beth has figured a way to make money out of her blog, an ability I sorely seem to lack.


Another great “Buy America” blog.  I love the look of this blog, the fact that the boyos who write the blog post with great regularity and the great American products I have discovered at this site.

All of my fellow travelers and I share a common vision:  we can provide jobs for members of our extended American family simply by buying American made clothing, appliances, shoes, cars, and other consumer goods.  It isn’t that hard to do.  All it takes is a little help to know what products are made in the States and where are those products available for purchase.  My fellow travelers and I can provide that information to you any time you want.  Now don’t be shy!

About Simply American LLC

I live in Seattle and love telling stories about Americans, the places where they work and the things that they make. I have just published a book, Simply American, encouraging Americans to purchase American made products; the book can be ordered at www.simply-american.com.

  2. Thanks for the plug. We are like minded. When I was compiling the list for American Made Clothes via the Internet, I, also, found many websites and blogs interesting in finding stuff made in the USA. I have compiled at least 50 different websites, and hope to have something in print about the websites in the next one or two weeks. -Jack A
