|Strictly USA Newsletter: April 2012|
Jeepers! My brother says my newsletters are too long! I'm trying, I'm trying. Yard and garden season is ramping up and Strictly USA is trying to keep pace with some new yard/ garden products. Some other new products have also been added. Keep reading and you'll see. It's not THAT long.
|NEW PRODUCT: Dog Bowls--Finally
some 100% Colorado USA made doggie bowls and they come in large and
small and in 4 cool patterns. The one pictured is green paisley. That's the one Spirit chose. Can use for food and/ or water. Or better yet, buy two! |
Strictly USA is the only Made in USA Product store in Colorado and indeed, the whole Rocky Mountain region. Yes, American made products are HARD to find. We have done the legwork for you in bringing you the highest quality, very useful and cool American made items. Whether you live here in Colorado or throughout the USA, Strictly USA looks forward to serving you!
|NEW PRODUCT: Made in USA stuffed animals
We mentioned these last month, but we have added some new animals to
our list. Among them, an all American eaglet, panda bear and a lizard
(its cute--trust me). And check out our special deal--the Coyote family, including papa, mama, and baby for $100 (normally $117 if sold separately) High quality, durable and 100% made in USA. |
BY THE NUMBERS:
0- Number of Coffee Makers made in the USA
1- Number of towel manufacturers in the USA (we have 'em!)
2- Number of blue jeans makers in the USA
90- % of worlds toys made in China
8000+- Number of toy factories in China
|NEW PRODUCT: Yard-> House Shoe Covers--How
about these slick, made in USA shoe covers? You can walk in the house
with muddy/ dirty shoes, throw on the shoe covers and avoid tracking all
the filth on your floors and carpets. No need to remove your shoes or
boots! And when you go back outside again, simply remove the shoe covers
and out you go. Indispensable when working out in the yard or garden
and making frequent trips back into the house. They clean easily.|
Home Depot: The Good, Bad and Ugly
On a recent foray into the Depot for yard/ garden supplies (its this warm weather!), I noticed several things. Good News: HD carries several Made in USA garden hoses at reasonable prices. Also good because we don't have to carry them here at Strictly USA!:-) Bad News: Not too many other yard/ garden items made in the USA. And, finally the Ugly: Depot also had several American Flag/ Patriotic garden decorations (stick in the ground metal flag and other whirly-gigs). All made in China. Nothing riles me up more than seeing any American flag type items made overseas. Yes, I wrote HD corporate about this issue. How do you feel about Chinese made patriotic items?
|NEW PRODUCT: 100% Made in USA Leaf Scoops. This
is an economical and very useful item. You slide the scoops on your
hands and use them to pick up large amounts of leaves and other yard
debris. Way more than using your hands alone! Plus your hands are
protected from sharp objects and the like.|
