Important news I forgot to tell you about

It has been a crazy couple of weeks and I have not had time to do any posting.  So here are a bunch of Made in America tidbits I wanted to let you know about.

Cooking with Gas

If you are in the market for appliances made by members of our extended American family, you now have some more choices.  Electrolux recently began shipping ranges and cook tops from its cutting edge factory in Memphis, Tennessee.

Drill baby, Drill!

With Father’s Day on the horizon, you are probably on the look out for gifts for the old fella.  Well if he likes tools, consider buying him something from Dewalt’s “Tools of the Brave” collection, which are made by members of our extended American family at Dewalt’s plant in Charlotte.

Take a seat!

If you are in the market for solid oak furniture, you need look no further than the Georgia Chair Company.  Georgia Chair turned 100 this year and Harry Bagwell II is the third generation of Bagwell at the helm.

The wheels on the bike go round and round

If you want a super fast bike, the Dimond Triathlon bike is right up your alley.   The bike is built by members of our extended American family at Dimond’s new 11,000 square foot facility in Des Moines, IA.  As to the $6000 price tag, well as they say, fast is never cheap.

Beating them at their own game

Everyone knows the Chinese are mad about ping-pong.  And sadly, most of the ping-pong paddles you can buy are made in the Middle Kingdom.  But now you have an American made paddle option.  PaddleYou now makes custom ping-pong paddles in the fine State of New York.  You can get ping-pong paddles that have the picture of whatever you want on the face of the paddle.  Like your dog. Or your team. It’s up to you.

So now you know about lots of useful items and gifts you can purchase that will help members of our extended American family keep bringing home that paycheck.  If we make American made products our default purchases, we can create demand that will lead to lots of unemployed Americans getting back to work and supporting their families.  Not a bad idea, if I do say so myself.

So get shopping!
