For the 4th of July, I have decided to add to my list of the Best “Made in USA” websites. For people interested in the made in USA/America movement, sometimes the internet is a very inefficient and not very friendly in attempting to find others interested in the “Made in USA” movement. There are many people with websites, facebook accounts, blogs, tumblr and twitter accounts that are promoting “Made in the USA”. My original blog entry listed about one hundred entries, see Best “Made in USA websites.”
I have just added another 30 entries for Made in USA websites/blogs or Facebook accounts. Sorry, I have not listed any twitter accounts and I have listed one tumblr account.
My Favorite “Made in USA” Websites
We will start with one of my favorite blogs: The American-Made Guide to Life. This blog is written by Amy in New York City. She has a rapidly growing audience and comments on finding things “made in the USA”, such as clothing, accessories, food, drink, etc. Amy, also, lists some timely multi-media articles about “Made in the USA”. She also has a Facebook page.
Another one of my favorites is from Josh Miller who just completed his movie “Made in the USA: The 30 Day Journey”. His website is usa30days.com. In it he tells you about the movie, and you are able to purchase the movie. The premise of the movie is that he travels across the United States over 30 days using only Made in USA products. When he does not have “made in the USA” products, he does without. He, also, has a very interactive Facebook discussions.
Another great site is madecollection.com. It is a website, that collects many different and exciting products all made within the USA. They have many sales and a very good collection of clothing, accessories and many surprising things.
sfmade.org is a great website and sort of a directory. It highlights small businesses that make things in the San Francisco Bay Area. Another website which is very similar is madeinnyc.org demonstrating products made in New York City.
