This just beats all! I picked up a gallon of apple juice at our local grocery, and on the side of the jug it says, "Contains Concentrate from China." Huh? What the heck! America can't even bottle their own apple juice any more?
I've had it with all the "Made in China" stuff and I'm not buying anymore. I had a revelation actually around Christmas time when I received some clothing in the mail from the relatives. They all had a label that said, "Made in China," or "Made in Indonesia." This is crazy, don't they make anything in the USA anymore?I guess not. I typed "Made in USA" in Ebay, and the majority of stuff was "dog beds" with occasional, "vintage... Made in USA" tools and kitchenware. They don't even have "Made in the USA" women's clothing.
When did all of this happen? I can remember when I was little, anything we could get from China was party goods or trinkets, such as from the Oriental Trading Company. Anything desirable from China was just the dishes, you know, everyone wanted some "China." The only thing we got from Mexico was Mexican blankets!
I guess I've been "sleeping" all these years, taken care of the kids, and working my butt off, and not even noticing what has been happening in America. This is a big Wakeup Call for me!
Here's some labels I've found on my clothing.
My blue jeans were Made in Madagascar
My nightgown was Made in Hong Kong
My Christmas pajamas were made in Indonesia
I guess everything in Family Dollar is from China too.
My thermal shirts were made in Mexico, some were Made in Thailand
My Hanes sweatshirts are Made in Mexico
My T shirts were Made in Honduras
My turtleneck shirts were Made in Guatemala
The Dickies coveralls were Made in Belize
Walmart seems to be the biggest China dealer around. I'll bet everything in Walmart is from China.
Even when I was looking for some house slippers in the JC Penny's online catalog, they all said "Made in China"
Everyone knows that stuff made overseas in China, Indonesia, etc. is poor quality and doesn't last long, and I've known this for many years. I guess that is why it's cheap. But when you have 4 kids, you go for the cheap stuff to stretch the dollars.
I am just shocked that it seems everything in my house is Made in China!
Even though I didn't find much on Ebay, here's a link to a webpage of some products made in the USA.

I just realized recently, that all the Made in the USA "household" stuff is in the Antique Stores! So, that's where I go for my household goods.
