Memorial Day weekend is almost here, and while the summer solstice is still officially a month away, many folks consider Monday's holiday the unofficial kickoff to the summer season. And that's just dandy with a vintage coot like me, because summer means picnics, BBQs, beach outings, camping excursions and more--made all the better with several of my made in the USA products in tow! There's my Premium Salad Server Set,
made from beautiful American maple with hallowed out ends that make gripping lettuce and croutons so easy--a must for any meal gathering. Or how about my durable Old Country Cheese Board
, also made of maple and which includes a cheese knife for easy, cheesy slicing, dicing and serving? When it comes to sipping cool lemonade, moscow mules, beer, or any summer libation of your desire, you can't beat my best selling Collector's Copper Cup
--there's something about copper that keeps beverages refreshing on a hot day, sip after satisfying sip. And there's lots more American made items where these came up, made with the same loving care today as they were in 1819 when I founded the company. So why not make it a made in USA summer? And don't forget to take a moment this Memorial Day to remember all of those who have served our beautiful country.
