Marlene Alexander takes an interesting look at items "Made in the USA" over at WalletPop.
If you're not a regular dollar store shopper, you might be surprised to learn that there are many items in store that were not made in China.
In one short visit, I found many products that were made in America, passing over any item with the phrase "distributed by" prefacing a U.S. company and choosing only the ones that declared themselves to be manufactured by an American company in a U.S. state.
I'm not going to comment on quality here, because the whole idea is to refute the myth that all dollar stores sell is "junk from China." I picked out more than 26 "Made in America" items at random on a recent visit to my local dollar store and only just scratched the surface.
