There's also a clothing store in the KC area that sells jeans that are 100% USA made. The workers who fabricate the jeans from start to finish are well paid with full benefits. A pair costs $200.

Walmart recently said they're moving back to the Made in the USA when possible. That will be a rough road.

The question is: Do you support workers in the USA, or do you take advantage of cheap Asian labor?

Ooooh, Stickley.

I'm not hugely into the mission style that is their signature, but they make some inlaid wood side tables that make me swoon in a manly manner.
