American-made gifts: Freeman Sporting Club
Give the gift of light! Or, in this case, a candle.
Freeman Sporting Club's Barber Candle is hand-poured in New York City and comes packed in a pine and birch box constructed in Maine. Additionally, the candle comes in a shatterproof "reusable enamel container from one of the older manufacturers in the United States."
And if candles aren't quite right for the people on your gift list, look around Freeman Sporting Club's website. The company is commited to stocking American-made products.
Freeman Sporting Club was established to pay tribute to the vanishing art of American hand-made goods, and the quality and durability inherent in something made by skilled artisans.
