Shop-A-Thon Thursday

Welcome back to Shop-A-Thon Thursday.  I have found a lot of good companies this week.  I have several more that are coming in next week's wrap-up.  I say this every week, but this is so exciting to be able to showcase these companies.  Every purchase of an American-made product creates another job.  How many can you create?  Enjoy!

2 Little Bostons (Hillsborough, NH) Pet bakery for dogs, cats and small animals, including jerky and treats.
Dan's Chocolates (Burlington, VT) Fresh, hand-made gourmet truffles, delivered directly from Dan's Chocolates to you.  (As in they make it at their factory in VT, you order it, and they deliver it to you!)
FlattenMe (HQ CA, Atlanta, GA; Salt Lake City, UT) Personalized books and gifts that magically transform your star into a superhero, mermaid, pirate and more. His/Her face and name used throughout the story. As seen on Oprah, Today Show, Good Morning America and more as the 'hot gift to give'!
Forking Queen (Chappell, NE) Silverware jewelry - spoon bracelets, fork rings, spoon rings - all handmade.
Heartfelt Books (Delaware or Texas) Personalized books.  You select questions to answer that best fit your relationship or style. Then, they take your answers and create a book.
Jelly Belly (Fairfield, CA) Jelly beans.  Here's a video of their story.  The company was featured on "How I Made My Millions."
J. McLaughlin (Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY) 30% of their clothing and accessories are made in the USA. These are some of those products. Maria Halter Dress, Catalina Spring Tee, Slim Fit Bi-Stretch Dixie
K'NEX (Hatfield, PA) The next generation of construction toys.
The Land of Nod (HQ Morton Grove, IL) Can you say baby, baby and more baby?  Furniture, bedding, storage, decor, toys, gifts, nursery items, even a baby registry.
Old Time Candy (LaGrange, OH) "The best selection of retro candy"  They have candy by the decade all the way back to pre-20s so just about any age range will stroll down memory lane here.  I did and I loved it.
Snapily (Beltsville, MD) Personalized 3D and animated cards or gifts. These look so cool. I don't mean to sound like a kid, but they really do. If you check them out, you'll say it too. Either that or I'm just easily entertained.

I love comments!

  1. Love that Jelly Bellies are made in the USA! Have loved them since I was a kid... Thanks for the info, get it up!

    1. Hi Tiffani,

      I feel the same way. I love finding stuff that's made in the USA, but something about food that's great. Thank you for stopping by.
