About Me

Hello! My goal is to create a convenient way to find American made goods of all sorts. I host a new giveaway nearly every week, and I add new links every day! *I do not get paid for any of this. I just want to show Americans how easy (and important) it is to support companies who are manufacturing high quality goods right here in the USA and hiring American workers! Buy American!

Best American Arts - Giveaway!!

Buying American goods is even more important this Christmas season . . . Let's make 2008 "The year of the American Gift!"

So when you find that perfect gift and it happens to be made in America, you grow America's economy, not China's. But you must be able to find American products to even have that choice. And that's why there is such concern about the shrinking access to the beautiful and innovative work of American artists and artisans.

Best American Arts is here to provide easy and convenient access to the best in American art.

Best American Arts is generously giving away the winner's choice of two of their Sea Stones wine bottle stoppers!Best American Arts would also like to offer a 10% discount to all Made in the USA readers. Simply, enter the coupon code " Patriot10 " during the checkout process and save 10% on the entire order. They are always adding beautiful, American-made pieces to their site, so be sure to check back often.

In order to enter:
- Go visit Best American Arts and pick a favorite artist/product.
- Come back here and leave a comment listing that favorite.
- Be sure to leave a blog/email address so I can contact you if you win!
- Only one entry per person, and you must have a U.S. shipping address to win!
- Winner will be drawn Sunday evening, November 23.

Oh, my! Brenda Griffith's glass pieces are gorgeous. I am particularly drawn to her Balance piece. But I would have to redo my entire home -- including buying a new one -- to have the proper place to display such lovely art.

I am looking for American made products as we all are. On your site you list pressure cookers that are made in WI. Quickly I looked since I do wish to have such an item. When I scrolled down to see the cost of the cooker, it was clearly listed as:
MADE IN CHINA
Perhaps this was an oversight on your part, or perhaps some are or are not made in America, just thought I would let you know.

My favorite artist is Lucinda Moran and the item I love most is her Layered Pearl Flower Medallion Necklace. It took my breath away when I saw it. Such a stunning piece.
