You asked for it and the Apartment Therapy community delivered. Friday's post on ABC World News' Made in America Challenge provoked a few of you to ask exactly where you could source domestic home goods:
Buying Made in America, much like the buy local movement, has lots of positive repercussions. On the heels of the recent state of the union address, we can note what an impact sticking to domestic products can have on our country's economy. Then there's also the energy and cost savings on the shipping of goods and materials.
Some of you, our wonderful readers, suggested a few sources within the comments of Friday's post. And we have a few of our own suggestions, too. We've gathered a list of sources together here. Please add to the list in the comments below!
Made in the USA:
- most Crate & Barrel sofas
- Lodge cast iron cookware
An interesting resource to check out for further information is Still Made in USA. The site breaks down what brands are simply assembled here and what products are actually made in the USA of domestic parts.
