No china

30 days of no made in China...

It began with a shopping trip to Kohls to use the twenty-dollar rewards I earned just before Christmas. I started in the clothing section, and not even thinking grabbed a couple sweaters, jeans and a top to try on. Deciding one of the sweaters made the cut, I began roaming the rest of the store. Soon I came upon some cute purses, but quickly noticed the CHAPS purses as well as several others were all made in China. It was then I remembered that I didn't check the sweater. The cute sweater that I thought would be perfect for an upcoming get together from Croft and Barrow was also made in China!  

Here I was under the impression that Walmart and the dollar spot at Target were where most of the made in China items would be found. Only to learn that made in China was down just about every isle in Kohls. Cute cupcake plate for Valentine's Day... made in China, picture frame... made in China, decorative towels... yep, made in China! 

Finally I found something I needed and wanted. Two new bed pillows made in Louisville Kentucky!  Success, I found something useful to use my coupon on and it was not made in China! But it didn't end there!  Headed to Target to grab a few things, including a sympathy card, and my first card of choice... yep, made it China!
