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!

Emerson Creek Pottery - Giveaway!!

This week, I'm excited to let you know about Emerson Creek Pottery!

Located in Bedford, Virginia, their pottery is formed of clay made onsite. Each piece is hand made, hand painted and fired in a gas kiln. They create servingware, teaware, pitchers, bakeware, vases, lamps, flower pots, ornaments, bathroom accessories, and many more beautiful pieces.

What amazes me is that each piece is painted without a pattern or stencil. They have true artists at work! Emerson Creek Pottery's ceramic pieces have been featured at Mt. Vernon, Monticello, and the Smithsonian Institute.
