Important Made in America report!

Take a moment to check out this ABC story on the Usry family in Dallas. They let ABC news empty their house of any item not made in America. The result, a nearly empty home. Just about the only thing left was their kitchen sink. Even the girls "American Girl" dolls were made in China!

It took some researching and phone calls, but the team was able to re furnish their home 100% made in the USA. One of the toughest items to find? A coffee maker! The answer, a Bunnomatic.
