Made in America: CBS Early Show

The Made in America media storm began with ABC’s World News with Diane Sawyer. Then NBC weighed in.

Now CBS takes its turn: A producer from The Early Show called American Made Alliance the day we returned from the Grand Canyon.

He said he saw the press releases about our rally and our national campaign!

He asked us to identify an American artist who makes Americana, and who must compete with the imported “patriotic” goods sold at the gift shops at American landmarks and museums.

We put him in touch with jewelry artist Merrie Buchsbaum of Merrily Made, in Connecticut. Check out her story here.

    That’s not just logic. That’s really sesnible.

  2. I’ve been watching this story develop since last January when Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) recalled his experience on Thom Hartmann’s regular “Friday Brunch With Bernie” last winter. You will no doubt find these links encouraging.

    As a builder of detailed (“from scatch”) historically-themed replication birdhouses and nativity creche display stall;, hearing Sen. Sanders describe his efforts to get the Smithsonian to sell more products that are actually made IN America has been very heartening to a 60 year old newbie in this line of niche crafts work.

    Happy reading!
