Across the country there are thousands of people looking for a way to bring their unique goods to the marketplace. Before the advent of technology and instant access online it was all about the physical marketplace. It could be the town square or a shed outside of your house. People would gather one day of the week to show off what they had made. Women sold soaps, perfumes, and hand-stitched dolls while men haggled over the price of whittling projects and homemade goods. These days it’s much the same – minus the physical location. We’ve stepped away from the town square in order to let technology help us find homemade goods.
That’s where USA Made for Sale (UMFS) comes in. As a platform which celebrates and assists sellers with prompting their USA made goods, UMFS is helping spread the word to make sure local craftsman get their names out front. The demand for goods made locally continues to grow with each passing year. Concerns over working conditions in other parts of the world, safety, and reliability of purchased goods are all important reasons why going local is extremely appealing. Marketplaces such as eBay, Etsy, Amazon, Bonanza, and even CraigsList have given rise to a completely new buying culture. USA Made for Sale is a marketplace focused on goods produced in America.

The introduction of online marketplaces has made it easier to find American-made products from independent craftspeople all over the country. More and more consumers are leaning towards buying products made in America. A 2013 survey by Consumer Reports found that “78 percent of Americans would rather buy the American product” than one made outside of the country. The same survey revealed “more than 60 percent of all respondents indicated they’d buy American-made clothes and appliances even if those cost 10 percent more than imported versions.” With easy access to online marketplaces it seems like going with American-made is becoming more and more important to consumers.
USA Made for Sale is committed to being the best marketplace for sellers looking to reach a growing audience interested in buying American-made products. We look forward to helping you reach your potential.
