What does “Made in America” really mean? Read those labels – we do! Sometimes it can mean that a product is only assembled in the USA from imported components. That’s not good enough for us! Traditionally, the Federal Trade Commission has required that a product advertised as Made in USA be “all or virtually all” made in the U.S. That means the product must contain no or negligible foreign content.
We can assure you that every item we carry in The Bluebird Cottage is manufactured in the USA. But we take it a step further than that.
When we shop for our inventory, we always ask prospective vendors, “where do you get your raw materials? Where are your glass jars made? Where is your fabric made? Where is your packaging made?” We strive to offer items that are made in America from American materials. If we know of a particular part that isn’t domestic, we’ll tell you. When you come right down to it, the cacao in chocolate candy isn’t exactly domestic! We can’t find nightlight parts or small light bulbs made in the USA – they simply don’t exist. Cinnamon and nutmeg aren’t domestic, but they’re delicious in our domestically-produced candy, honey, and jellies. There may be some fragrances and essential oils in our soaps and lotions that are not manufactured in the USA, but the overwhelming majority of the components is American. We chose our gift bags, tissue, ribbon, and labels because they’re made right here in the USA from domestic materials.
We carry a variety of Warm Springs and Georgia souvenirs including postcards, ornaments, mugs, and magnets, and of course, they’re all American-made. #AmericanMade #MadeintheUSA #MadeinAmerica #USAMade
