I'm happy that so many scrapbooking companies are still making their products in the USA. I'm starting to be more aware of that. The great thing I've noticed is that the ones made in the USA are no more expensive than the ones made in China.

Feeding my scrapbooking paper addiction and supporting domestic jobs is a win-win for me!

I do buy made in the USA over made in China. I have noticed though that even when the papers are printed in the USA the embellies are usually made in China. It is good to keep checking where our favorites are produced.

What makes me feel guilty is coffee--so much is produced in Columbia, etc, by workers who get paid so little so that Folgers can get richer. I used to buy only "Fair Trade" coffee, which guarantees coffee farmers a decent living wage. But, it gets expensive--so I (being a poor girl) opt over and over again for the cheapest stuff I can find. I am a hypocrite, I know! But, at least I can feel good about buying USA-produced scrapbook supplies. Thanks for the reminder! And I want to start buying my clothes from USA-based companies (or at least companies taht pay workers decently): Justice Clothing, No-Sweat, etc. Problem is, I do so much shopping in thrift stores! I rarely buy clothing new (being a poor girl, like I said). Would rather buy new scrap supplies than new clothing (or just about anything else!)
