Made in the USA
Buy American | Are you Sure
Although people use the term "Buy American" to help U.S. businesses, to help provide and save jobs and to promote the U.S. economy, "Buy American" can also refer to purchasing products that are manufactured in any country in North or South America, not just the United States. Any manufacture in either North or South American can say or identify their products as "American Made." In fact a company in the United States who has their products manufactured in Mexico can say their products were "Made in America" because it was. Mexico is part of North America and thus "Made in America" can be used.
Made in the USA | You Can Be Sure
Made in the USA provides assurance that the products you are purchasing are "Made in the USA" and not in any other country. It also ensures that you are support U.S. business, their employees and re-investing in the U.S. economy by keep and/or adding U.S. jobs.
Made in the USA | The Brands
At James Anthony Collection I have put a lot of thought into the brands that are carried in my store. Below is the decision making process that my team and I go through in selecting a brand to carry.
- Is it a brand that I use myself in my home or design projects. That's the first step. I like to actually use the products to make sure it meets my standard of quality and that the price truly reflects the quality of the products before offering them in my store.
- Next, after the decision is made to carry a brand, I look in depth at the brand. Is the company U.S. based, what products in their line are "Made in the USA". Is the company reputable, are their products of the HIGHEST quality and are they exceptionally designed with the best materials available.
Below is a list of brands carried in my store that are "Made in the USA". This list is just a beginning and is not definitive of the brands carried that are Made in the USA. There are some brands that I carry which have products that are made both in the USA and in other countries. Eventually the products of those brands that are "Made in the USA" will be added.

At James Anthony Collection I try to source from small U.S. business whose products are entirely manufactured in the U.S. as much as possible, but I know that that is not always possible for one reason or another.
Not Made in the USA | Imported Brands
As much as I try to offer "Made in the USA" brands there are some brands, that I do offer, that are not made in the USA. These brands have been selected based on somewhat different set of criteria than we base our "Made in the USA" brands. All our import brands are used by me in my home and they still must meet his standard of quality and the price must truly reflect the products quality before they are offered on my site.
Once they have met my standard of quality, the company is then researched to make sure the brands are authentic and that our customer is getting the BEST quality product from the brands we import. These are brands that are unique, one of a kind or have an origination abroad.
Some of the imported brands that meet the above requirements are La Poterie De La Madeleine and Coutellerie Nontronnaise to name a few. These brands are very in unique design, are one of a kind whose history goes back thousands of years and whose quality is superior. Both these brands originated in France hundreds of years ago and represent hand made products that are unique to the respective companies.
