Day 12: cleaning out the closet
to see what I found on days 1-11 go to the USA in a day tab
Intro: I am on a hunt for things in my home that are made in the USA.
Each day I will try to post an item or two from my house.
Why? To support companies that are in my country.
Take a second and look at the product or item you are using and see where it is made.
There's nothing like a clothing drive to get me motivated to clean out my closet. It's time to do Spring cleaning before it is officially Spring, plus I was ready to change purses. My dark black purse from the Winter months needed to go...and so did the dresses, shirts, and shoes I haven't worn in years.
The following did not make it into the donation bag:
I put several pairs of shoes in the donation bag. I only found one pair of boots made in USA, no shoes. The boots are made by L.L. Bean in Freeport, Maine. You can still buy these boots and they are still made in Maine USA.
Purses: When I was in high school my sister and I became fond of Le Sportsac. These purses, totes, and bags were made in USA. I have some newer ones that were not made in USA. And, my other purses are some designer brand,but they are not made in USA. Why is that!
This Lilly Pulitzer design for Le Sportsac was not made in USA.
The two canvas totes were made by Woodchips Designers on Martha's Vineyard Island. I can't seem to find if they are still in business.
What country is your purse made in?
