Top 10 Reasons to Shop American-made First

by Sandra Lee Rella on 06 Sep, 2019


Since AnytownUSA launched in 2018, word has spread. Hardworking, talented craftspeople and artisans all across our nation have set up shop at anytownusa.com. Their goal, their American dream is to make things they’re proud of and to make a living in America selling those things.

Our mission is to help our Sellers realize their dream of earning a decent living by making things. At AnytownUSA, the American Made Marketplace, we believe we all thrive when we support each other. And we’re not alone in thinking this way. There’s a growing movement of folks who want to know more about who made the stuff they’re buying and how it was made. That’s why, whether it’s a one-person shop, a small family business, or a company rooted in a community, you’ll find a Seller Profile for every product sold on anytownusa.com. You’ll also see a symbol that tells you whether the product was handmade and how it was made: entirely in the USA, in the USA with U.S. and imported material, or in the USA with imported material.

So the next time you’re shopping for clothes, jewelry, cosmetics, pet products, things for the home — almost anything, really — shop American-made first. When you buy from American Makers, you’ll be helping to make their American dream come true. Need more convincing? Read on:
