  1. I stopped into a bike shop yesterday. They sold retro-style bikes. I was pleaed to learn that the brands they carried were made in Holland, Poland and Los Angeles.

  3. That is a chalk sign that warms the old heart. So little is made here. Hopefully in the years to come, more will be kept here on this side of the ocean. genie

  4. I hadn't heard that one either!
    Thanks for your advice Andy. I am going to change templates since I think that was part of my problem.

  5. A rather dramatic sign! Love how it seems to be on a chalkboard attached to the full height of the shelves!

  10. It's always nice to find some locally made items. Good that they made a sign to point it out!

  11. While it's true that a large proportion of mass market pottery/ceramics sold on Western markets now are made in China, American consumers (and perhaps Canadian, too) hugely over-estimate the amount of Chinese imports: it's only 18% of all goods and services imported into their country. Which is just a tiny bit more than what Canada exports to the States. What makes me uncomfortable about this sign is that it goes beyond the call to "buy local" (which I support wholeheartedly) to a negative tone against the Chinese people for their efforts to join the world market. Just sayin'... :-)

    1. Francisca it's been a long time since I've seen a made in Canada tag. It seems like almost everything in the stores are made in China. So if someone has a sign that says not made in China it comes out more as joke than anything else. It's not so funny to those that have lost their job because it's been exported.
