I will feature your products

Hi, if you own a home based business that manufactures or sells American Made products, I will feature your items and link to your site in exchange for Sponsor Giveaways. You will have to give me some background on the company as far as where the items are manufactured and how long the company has been in business. If you know how many employees, that is great to as this blog is dedicated to helping keep Americans in business. The items can be as inexpensive as $5.00 plus shipping so it is definitely worth the exposure. This blog is growing every day, and it would be great to be able to feature some items from fellow bloggers.

Stamper Black Hills Gold

Pioneering Black Hills Gold innovation and goldsmithing since 1922, Stamper Genuine Black Hills Gold Jewelry, a family-owned company, has been setting high-quality standards in the industry for two generations. Ed and Amy Stamper purchased the company in 1959 from Clara Arnold. At the age of 16 Clara began creating Black Hills Gold jewelry for a business owned by the Butler family in Deadwood SD. By the 1940's she owned and operated her own shop on Main Street in Rapid City, SD. Upon retirement in 1959, she continued to share her talents by contributing to the training and development of Stamper employees. From a two-man operation, Stamper has grown into a nationally recognized company with over 90 employees and 13 sales representatives.

Jiffy Steamers

Jiffy® Steamer traces its roots back to 1940. Gone with the Wind was the movie and Frank Sinatra, the Voice. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was preparing to run for a third term. Most everyone of that era wore a hat. Stretching, shaping and blocking your fedora over a steaming kettle was common. This is where the idea was born - a better way to steam hats "back into shape in a jiffy." Shortly after 1940, the company was organized and the Jiffy® Steamer Model J-1 was patented. Jiffy® Steamer knew the invention was good for more than steaming hats, so a hose attachment and steam head were added. The new Jiffy® Steamer offered a revolutionary solution to an age-old problem of the clothing industry...removing wrinkles efficiently. Today, three generations are involved in this closely-held company. Jiffy® Steamer Company, LLC is known around the globe (over 45 foreign markets) and is backed by over 1,000 dealers in the United States alone. The dozens of Jiffy® Steamer models can be found almost everywhere-from the commercial garment trade, to residential markets, in the pages of high-end mail order catalogs, in businesses that cater to the travel industry as well as in other specialty markets. The history of the Jiffy® Steamer is filled with the promise and desire to harness the power and magic of steam.

Did you know?

Did you know is a new section that will be added to this blog that will help you find Items Made In The USA on your own. This weeks tip is about finding products made in your local or regional area by simply searching for Manufacturing Associations in your area. In my search for products this week, I ran across the Manufacturers Association of Central Florida (MACF). They have a complete list of all of their members listed on their website so while it doesn't break down the industries by category, I can still find products that I am in need of and can be purchased locally. While some of the listing are not manufacturers of products, there is still some great information in this list.
