I want to support the U.S., but where can I even find products made here?!
Me also I do not find products made in the U.S, I will search first and if I have already a concrete answer Ill get back with you..
It's important not to get caught up in the "gung-ho buy American wave". Simply put, foreign nations (especially serious exporters like China) have what's called "absolute advantage". They are able to produce a good of similar quality (above or below is irrelevant) for much less than a company in the US, especially with clothing and textiles.
That being said, an overwhelming majority of people buy such items because they are cheap. When it comes down to buying something that the US is good at producing, you then have the money to do so.
Even if you don't buy American, you sort of are because we do make money on import taxes (except from Mexico and Canada, due to NAFTA). By buying the foreign goods you give them the incentive to export to us, which in turn is a steady flow of money for the US of A.
Use Google to find a list of US-manufactured products. There are websites dedicated to compiling lists. The clothing quality of items made in the US in particular is much better than the crap put together in foreign sweatshops. But you are going to have to be ready to spend. Honest business is expensive for the owners. Therefore, prices are higher for the consumer. Some US made products are great and some are garbage. I would just beware of supporting American-owned companies that manufacture overseas or foreign-owned companies that manufacture in the US. I don't worry about buying from foreign-owned companies that manufacture in their own country.
Did you intend this to be sarcastic, or am I misreading? Really, I am unsure.
American made products still exist in great number.
Start with household appliances
Cleaning supplies, both household and personal
Electrical motors, altenators, bushings, windings, and related products
Feminine and infant disposables---------read, tampons/diapers
Take this, and the websites mentioned by other posters and shop carefully!
