    What are some American companies that make quality products.

    I really love the fact that Tom runs a non offshore business in Seattle.

    What are some other some companies that makes really nice items in the US? It can be anything.

    Thanks.

    Wow, artbuild. You and your companion must be very happy. Just out of curiosity, is the seat wide and deep enough to sit with your legs crossed under you, tailor style?

    There is 19" between the uprights that support the arms. The seat itself is about 21-1/2" wide. Depends on your size and flexibility as far as leg crossing is concerned.
    We have had the chairs for 15 or so years and they have fit everyone who has tried them.
    Plus Gary is a super quality human being.

    Wow--I didn't even know I needed a rocking chair. But I think I do, now.

    I used to have a really cheap one when my daughter was a baby. Many a night was spent soothing her to sleep that way. I miss it. And I know that once I tried a really well made rocking chair, there'd be no going back...

    I just got two running skirts and a shirt from http://www.skirtgoddess.com. They're made in the USA and really nice. Also, there is a wide variety of sizes, so bigger girls and tiny girls will be able to find something that fits!
    I love my Aeronaut, Tri-Star, Western Flyer, Cadet 15 Brain Cell, Imago, Medium Cafe Bag (daily bag), Swift, Side Effect and accessories (snake charmer, packing cubes, stuff sacks, pouches, lights, keystraps, etc.) Eagerly awaiting trays and Canine Citizens! Picture to come soon.

    I had a good laugh over a product I just got. It says on it:

    "Innovated in the USA*Made in Malaysia"

    At least someone here thought of it...but then...isn't that the case with much of the stuff now made overseas?

    I just noticed that thread today.

    Darcy, or a mod, could you please remove this thread. I have no need for it and will add whats here to the other thread.

    Thanks!
