What happened to Made in America?

Let’s face it:

-the dollar is getting crushed by the euro.

-Toyotas are made in the U.S. and Fords are made in Mexico.

-The last Superman movie sucked.

-We’ve truly gone global.

Don’t worry we haven’t gone all “Freedom Fry” psycho xenophobic on you! We consider our little etsy shop here global. We LOVE shipping our crazy ideas all over the world.
We were just wondering …
“What happened to Made in America?” Well WE personally print, sew, pour, cast and create all of our ideas right here in America. We hand printed this shirt on an American Apparel tee that was sewn together in the U.S. So kick back and enjoy, Mixed Species will pull the nation out of its slump one tee shirt at a time!

You can find these tees available here:

Thank you! I totally agree! My husband and I were just trying to explain to our son why there are so many protestors for the Olympics. It fits.

I second that emotion!

Just the other day a friend was complaining he wanted a to-go mug that wasn't made in China. Maybe I can find him one on etsy =D

I was made in america! My jewelry is put together here and even though I buy my beads locally - I dont think anyone really knows where it comes from unless its turquoise... keep it goin!

I love it! There are so many reasons to buy American made clothing (and I DON'T mean american apparel, I personally don't like them much.)

Deabusamor said...

Definitely! Why buy cheap imported crap when there's homegrown quality stuff? Great job guys!

Plus, I'm sure that shirt would look smexy with a piano skirt! ;)

I love that..."We go there so you don't have to". Your shop is so cool and the beef jerky underpants...clever and sex-ay.

I agree with everything you said! But you always say it so much better! Keep up the great work that we all enjoy so much!
