THIS IS SUCH A L THIS IS SUCH A COOL CONCEPT AND SO PATRIOTIC.>> THAT’S EXACTLY HOW I FEEL. MY HEART SWELLS WHEN I WALK THROUGH THIS HALL. AMERICAN MADE THESE QUALITY AND COST EFFICIENT PRODUCTS. WE’RE GETTING MORE COMPETITIVE AS WE START SOURCING MORE MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS RIGHT HERE IN DOMESTICALLY IN THE U.S. AND I AM SO HAPPY FOR THESE MANUFACTURERS BECAUSE THEY’VE BEEN COMMITTED TO ONLY SOURCING HERE IN THE U.S. AND NOW THEY’RE BENEFITING FROM IT AND WE’RE SEEING NEW BUSINESSES POP UP AS A RESULT AND SOME OF THE BUSINESSES THAT WERE PRODUCING THOSE MATERIALS ARE NOW DOING EVEN BETTER. SO QUALITY AND COST EFFECTIVE IS WHAT’S SO IMPORTANT.>>REPORTER: IT’S SUCH A WIN-WIN. IT’S ALL ABOUT KEEPING THE BUSINESS HERE, KEEPING THE MONEY HERE. CHECK OUT THESE HATS, GUYS.

FOR MANY, THIS IS THEIR FIRST SHOW AND MANUFACTURERS AS A WHOLE DO A TERRIBLE JOB OF MARKETING THEIR PRODUCT. THEY KNOW HOW TO BUILD IT BUT TO SELL IT, DISTRIBUTE IT, PUT IT IN THE MARKET, THEY DON’T DO A VERY GOOD JOB.>>REPORTER: THIS EVENT STARTS WITH THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, THE NATION ALAN THEM AND A PRAYER — NATIONAL ANTHEM AND

    I used to sell Canadian made Santana boots and Derek Alexander bags they were well made rugged and although they were a bit more expensive I would say if we don't support our own we can't expect anyone else to and that I doubt if you went to China you would see many made in Canada labels. Made by Canadians sold by Canadians bought by Canadians there is a great sense of pride in self sufficiency like that.

    The truth is we make almost $2.25 to Chinaโ€™s $1. (American money) because we make more high tech expensive products and they make all that cheap Dollar General and Walmart crap. So….
    But where my husband works, they are low getting steel from America and not China !!! Woohoo and they just hired a little over 400 more people for FULL TIME work at $10-$15 an hour !!

    It is great to finally see more products MADE IN USA again. I have always tried to buy American products in the past and was willing to spend more for them but found it difficult to get in most stores. China has been making too much of our stuff for way too long and they don't respect American patent rights nor our intellectual property. China also is a major manufacturer/supplier of illegal drugs that are smuggled into our country each year.

    Now to throw a downer on this. If you will see it is mostly hats and luggage. That doesn't crossover well if we should find ourselves in a war and have to build ships, planes and tanks. Nothing there has to hold a .001 of an inch. Boy are we going to be in trouble if a major war breaks out. Infact I believe we would lose it before we got enough people trained to supply an army. But that is OK, because those that sold out the manufacturing in this country will be hanged with the leaders of this country for war crimes.
