10 Things We Love, Made in Pennsylvania

I'm so happy to call the Keystone State my home. I've lived in PA for most of my life and I have no plans on leaving. That's why I had so much fun coming up with this list of my top 10 things made in Pennsylvania . Made in Pennsylvania In case you didn't know it, PA is unofficially known as a “snack capital of the world”. It was so hard to not make this a yummy food-only list. But that wouldn't be fair to our non-food producing companies. So in no particular order I present to you the top 10 things...

The Season’s Best Back to School Supplies: Easy to Find, Made in the USA

My kiddos and I searched several national chain stores for school supplies with “Made in USA” on the label.  Hunting for these 3 words on packages is the BEST way to keep kids occupied while running errands! My daughter isn't reading yet, and she recognizes and knows the difference between the words “Made in China” and “Made in the USA”!

The crayons were made by Crayola. The coloring books were produced by Bendon Publishing for American Greetings. The pencils were USA Gold from the Write Dudes. The candle was by Illume from Minneapolis for Target. The eggs and butter were from local dairy distributors.  The pencil sharpener was the only item when, even given a (limited) choice, I did not find any American-made options. The requests for the school folder and the birthday gift were so specific that I was not left with any other options. But...
