The Frugal Diva likes to emphasize the positive. Let’s concentrate on how we can shop American.
American Apparel clothing at great prices is manufactured right here in downtown Los Angeles employing 5000 workers. Let’s support this local business and their efforts at not only manufacturing in the USA but keeping it sustainable, donating to local schools, giving their employees ESL classes, access to health care, benefits, and encouraging workers to bike or bus to work. While teens are the target market, there are plentiful items for kids that include organic and natural play dough, organic cotton clothes, and fun hair accessories. Even if they are mocked on Sex and the City (a bit dated reference), a scrunchie keeps hair out of your eyes and off your neck while working out. Dov get your act together!

C and C California is super trendy, super comfy, and made here. Great sales page!
Let’s not forget the gentlemen. Ebbets.com has all manners of throwback sports attire and some are even on sale.
The Made in America Foundation champions manufacturing in the USA and has great resources for finding companies.
Let me know about your favorite made in the USA clothing, accessories, and shoes. I’ll be happy to add them to the list.
