Why We Sell Only Made in the USA Products

Posted by Karen Mayo Marsh on 15th Feb 2014

Welcome to The New England Trading Company!

All of the items we sell are proudly made in the USA and are handcrafted by artisans and small businesses. 

We consider ourselves curators of unique American gifts and are very selective on the items we'll carry. They have to be unique and interesting. We love products that have a back story! Their quality has to be exceptional and they must be American made. 

We really love discovering products that stop people in their tracks. Yes, that is a New Hampshire granite booze dispenser - very cool indeed. And, yes, those doormats have been at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. No, they don't smell like fish although you can detect a bit of briny history in their feel. 

It's fun to sell products that you love. And when you shop these made-in-the-USA gifts, you are supporting artisans and families across the country. Plus, you can really tell the difference in quality when you invest in a handcrafted item such as a solid wood cutting board, a hand-turned cherry wooden bowl, or a recycled sail bag versus something that is mass manufactured.

We just feel these American products are better, last longer, and tell a great story. We're proud of the items we choose to carry and will always stand behind their quality and guarantee your satisfaction.

If you know of any American artisans whose products would be a nice match for our store, please let us know. We're always looking for new gift ideas.

Thank you very much for reading this post, and taking the time to check our our Made in the USA store.
