I find myself talking about buying American to everyone I come in contact with now. When I go in the stores I am constantly checking out where things come from, even things I am not intending to buy. I did see some beautiful candle holders at Lowes last weekend and almost bought them until I looked under the bottom, made in china. So I put them back. Today my husband and I went to Home Depot. We needed a few things. I was very proud of my husband today. When he wanted an air compressor they had 2 brands on sale, a Porter-Cable and a Husky. The Porter-Cable was 10 dollars more but it was made in the USA so he bought that one. We also bought weed-n-feed that was cheaper than all the others, named Vigoro and it too was made in the USA. Maybe I am obsessed but I feel I am doing my part to help make America work.
