Effing China Everywhere

I went to get my holiday cards yesterday. All made in China.

Every. Single. Box.

Pissed. Me. Off.

It bugs me that American-produced products aren't a choice anymore. I was determined that I was willing to pay more, and even choose a design that wasn't my favorite, as long as they were produced here.

Ugh.

Try ordering online. Might I suggest "the Paper Source"? A fine company, and everything is made right here.

It's not easy to buy American! I switched soaps, it's a start. Try buying toys, you know ...one's the kids will actually play with. ugh

I've learned to just find local artists that produce their own lines.. screw the Chinese and support a starving artist, every one wins.

Check out the cards at Romeo's gifts on lark Street. We bought all our cards there. many of the cards are made on recycled paper and donate a portion of proceeds to charity.
