American-made presents under an American-made tree
Our Buy American Mention of the Week!
by Roger Simmermaker
December 1, 2008

With Christmas Day about a month away, many patriotic Americans are thinking about what kind of American-made gifts they can find to put under their Christmas trees. These same patriotic Americans may want to get an American-made, artificial Christmas tree to decorate and display as a gathering place for all those great and thoughtful gifts for friends and loved ones as well, but the problem is many consumers don't know where to go to get one.

If you're planning on heading out to the stores to find an American-made artificial tree, you're probably going to end up wasting your time. By ordering from you can save time, avoid the headaches of dealing with all that traffic, and support American workers at the same time.

It's no secret that many Americans are losing their jobs in today's unstable and uncertain economy, and you can help make both the economy and the lives of more Americans more stable and more certain by buying an American-made artificial tree instead of that cheap, Chinese-made tree you might have seen at the mall.

The prices at start at $27.99 for a three-foot tree and start as low as $99.00 for a 6.5-foot tree. But if you type in the special code HTBA just before checkout, you'll save a full 10 percent off of your purchase price. Your tree will be made in New York where it will be shipped just a few days after your order. And in keeping with the Christmas spirit, you'll know you've given one of the best gifts you could ever give - the prospect that another American will be able to keep their job and be able to buy Christmas gifts of their loved ones.

You can choose from some of the most popular types of artificial trees including Alberta Pine, Columbia Fir, White Pine, Aberdeen Pine and Douglas Fir.

If you have any questions about any of the trees at, they'll be happy to answer them at their American-based customer service center by calling 1-877-437-1225. You can even ask them about their 110 percent money-back guaranteee. That's how sure they are you'll be satisfied with their 100 percent American-crafted U.S. Christmas trees!

One of the hardest areas to buy American these days is in the apparel category, but that's not a problem if you visit, where you'll find union-made, American-made clothing of all kinds for men, women, kids, and even pets. You'll also find American-made accessories like aprons, tote bags, fleece blankets and more. And for something surprisingly special this Christmas, check out their impressive collection of custom-carved glass. And now you can save 10 percent when you type in the special HTBA code before checkout.

With all the talk about how best to stimulate the economy these days, the folks at know that the best economic stimulus can be achieved by buying U.S.-made products, and that's exactly what they offer.

Something I'm looking at right now to order from is at least a couple of pairs of casual pants, which are available in navy or khaki color. I have plenty of American-made denim jeans, but it's more difficult to buy American-made, non-denim casual pants. I definitely want to support the companies that make these clothes in the USA so the demand will be there for them to keep making them in the USA.

Have you found it difficult to buy American made for your kids, including toddlers and infants? The Union Shop probably has what you've been looking for but couldn't find. The selection of American-made apparel at includes all the traditional shirts, sweaters, pants, shorts and jackets you would expect, but they also carry specific kinds of work clothing, firefighter apparel and tall sizes. For the women, you'll find intimates and sleepwear choices.

You can also choose from hundreds of custom-designed logos including military and patriotic. Everything done by the union members at the Union Shop is done right here in America, whether it's embroidery, screen printing, graphic design, sales, or marketing.

You won't find foreign labels or foreign products at or, so browse American and buy American at either of these sites before the end of the year and use the special HTBA code to get an additional 10 percent off your American-made purchase. And remember, by buying American and saving American jobs, you can not only help make it a better Christmas for more Americans this year, but you can also make it a better economy for more Americans next year as well.
