3rd Annual Made-in-the USA in honor of July Fourth

fireworksQuestion: Are fireworks made in the USA?

Answer: Yes. There are still manufacturers of fireworks made here in America. Pretty good thinking for a holiday that celebrates our country. Did you also know that the Pledge of Allegiance was an advertising campaign designed to sell American flags? Whatever the reason, this weekend is a pretty good time to fly the stars and stripes. And yes, plenty of American flag makers are based in the USA. To continue our tradition of featuring products made in America in honor of July Fourth, here is our 3rd annual list. This time we’re focusing on products used in the kitchen that are probably familiar to most people.

We also use countertop surfaces by Cambria, also made here in America. You can read about more US based products in our second annual post.
