Have a wonderful holiday


"Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. " USDOL
At Backyard Boutique, I try to support manufacturers of products made in the US - most of our inventory is "proudly made in the USA."
This is the best tribute I can give to the American worker.

In today's economic climate, I know that can be hard to do...both as to cost and availability of product... so good for you!

Amen. While I realize that some people cannot afford to bypass the box stores filled with products from China, the rest of us should. I've long been at proponent of buying American and buying from local businesses.

Have a great holiday.

I commend you for that. I have to admit I haven't paid much attention to what I buy and where it comes from but I will begin to take note. I think we all should and make our own personal statement. It would make a difference.
