Lehman's Hardware has a Made in US section.  Cool stuff for off the grid living & homesteading on this website, in case you're preparing for an austere future.

Here is a new book I found that lists some of the made in America sources as well as discussing the issues with multi-sourced products.

I don't know where they are made but we typically bought Mason and Kerr glass jars in the grocery store for decades.

Don't forget that the raw materials may very well be made in a country one doesn't want to purchase from.  It doesn't mean a whole lot if the fabric and thread, or other material was from say........China.........and it was only sewn here.

Another article about American made goods and sources:

ZebulonUSA http://www.zebulonusa.com/ carries a large variety of men's, women's and children's apparel and accessories. Zebulon also carries duffle bags, rolling luggage, briefcases, backpacks, toys, games, as well as products for the home and outdoors. This is one of the original "American Hero" companies that have been swimming against the tide of ever-increasing imports for years.

Shop For America http://www.shopforamerica.com/ carries literally thousands of American-made products including a wide variety of clothing for the entire family, furniture, home d├ęcor, home improvement, bath & body, patio & garden, small appliances and gourmet food. As the name implies, when you shop here, you really are shopping for America.

All American Clothing http://www.allamericanclothing.com/ has grown from reselling products made by other companies to carrying their own line of American-made jeans, shorts and other apparel. This company carries both union-made and USA-made to support both union and non-union American labor. Formerly known as Union Jean Company, it's been great to see this company expand and grow over the years, and with our help they'll continue to do so.

At Union House Apparel http://www.unionhouse.com/ you'll find a lot of unique apparel and styles you may not have been thinking of or considering, as well as a rather large inventory of closeout and sale items at lower-than-normal prices. If you've been looking for an American flag made in the USA, this is the place to get one.

At The Union Shop http://www.theunionshop.org/ you can find even more of both standard and unique American-made and union-made goods. Check out their selection of carved glass in the form of candle holders, lighthouses and sailboats just to name a few.

The author of the book mentioned has a website that he posts articles to about American goods and topics:

Another U.S. source site:
www.usgrown.com
found within article: http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=66051
Quote
U.S. Grown was founded by Clifford DeMay, who previously was a Farm Division Manager for American-owned Seneca Foods. The mission of U.S. Grown is quite simple. It's to show consumers that they have a choice to purchase food products grown in the United States. U.S. Grown believes, as is evident from the statement on their patriotic-style labels, that to survive a nation must feed itself. U.S. Grown is devoted to reviving and supporting U.S. agriculture through a campaign focused on the labeling of foods, and their desire is to make consumer selection easier by giving consumers the ability to choose 100 percent U.S. grown products.

If we truly want homegrown food products, we need to ask for it from America's retailers, and then they will see the benefits in stocking their retail store shelves with domestically grown food.

At USGrown.com, you'll find canned goods that include U.S. grown peaches, pears, green beans, sliced carrots, sweet peas, whole kernel corn, and mixed vegetables. You can also buy premium apple juice from U.S. grown apples.

A belated thank-you, Dennis, for the previous post with the links for American-made clothing.  My DH needs some new shirts, and I found a place to order them on one of your links.  Much appreciated!

Another link that has quite a few places where you will find american made products is: stillmadeinamerica.com Plan on going back to it as I found my shower curtain that will replace the plastic one I have now with a cotton duck cloth one.
