So… Where is Frontier Coop? Clicking through items & trying to find which state they are made in is what I came here for 🙂
Hi TM Conway,
I removed Frontier Coop from our list. They are based in Norway, Iowa, but their products are grown and sourced globally.
1888 Mills towels are the best. Thanks for all of the great suggestions!
We could use a new clock. There’s nothing wrong with the old one but it ticks too loudly, lol. It drives me nuts!
These are good ideas, I like making gift baskets for house warming, some things I haven’t considered before. And of course, buying these since they are made in the USA!!!!!!!
I usually go with towels because there’s no such thing as too many, lol. In our last move, an entire big box of towels & sheets somehow never showed up. I picture someone finding a big box of towels & sheets on the side of U.S. 27 & just wondering how it got there, ha.
Great ideas! I personally always love practical gifts. I like getting items that I can actually use!
I want more towels. I am looking today. I try to buy more every year around this time.
