I love the idea of buying Made in the USA products whenever possible. Coming from a small state, I was delighted to learn how many important things are made in Delaware. It may take a few more minutes to check a label, but it is totally worth it to keep our money in our country and in our economy.
On a local level, it makes even more sense to me to purchase as much locally as possible. Spending our money at local small businesses keeps our own local economy moving forward. Since I've lived in Delaware all but one year of my life, I love this state and want to support it as much as I can!

Although Delaware is a small state, there are still quite a few products that are known nationally, or at least regionally, that are manufactured in Delaware. One of my favorite Made in Delaware products just happens to be in my own backyard.
