About this site . . .

January 2020 - With minimal fanfare (okay, a LITTLE fanfare!), I am proud to announce 3.0! With a push from Google and many exasperated web designers, I have finally entered the era of the mobile-friendly website. In redoing the site, I tried to check every link, but as always this site is a constant work in progress. Read on if you want to know more about the history of the directory. Or, just get to the shopping.

If you read labels, you will have noticed that many stores and catalogs sell mostly imported goods. Globalization and changes in consumer patterns have created new pressures (and new opportunities) for U.S. manufacturers and workers. Too often, however, this has meant that the U.S. no longer makes many of the goods that we use everyday.

I try to buy American products whenever possible, but as a working mother of three boys, I didn't have time to drive from store to store, or search for hours on-line. From my frustration came the idea for this site...

I launched in July 2004 after several months of research and HTML coding. My original site had about 200 product/company listings, and was clearly the work of a novice webmaster. In March 2008, I posted a revised version of the site ( 2.0) that has a more professional look, thanks to time spent in the toils of Dreamweaver. A few more format upgrades came along in January 2011. At its heart, however, the effort remains a voluntary commitment that I make because it seems important.

The purpose of is to share with other shoppers some of the great manufacturers, retailers, and craftspeople that I have found who still produce quality products in America. Enjoy shopping and send your feedback so the site will continue to improve.

It's nice to be noticed!
