    I hope more and more people will start appreciating (buying) all of the talent of our American made designers. It might be a little more expensive than China, but it will last a LOT longer and it has a big impact here at home.

      Exactly! Even if it is a bigger expense up-front I find that buying American made is a great investment over the long-term.

    I had wanted to do a homemade Christmas , but having a five month old makes the free time to create a bit hard to find. I am loving this challenge and think it is a great alternative to the homemade one I was trying to have. I know I am planning on buying baby spoons from liberty tabletop(the only flatware company left here). Until they posted something a few weeks ago I hadn’t eve thought about the possible chemical contamination of made in china baby spoons because of lack of required testing on imported products. I plan on making them a stocking stuffer :)

    *SO* exciting. I drew my SIL in the gift exchange this year, and I know she’d love something that was handcrafted in America, unique, and classy….so I’m counting on you to give me some ideas!!!
