Make sure your Halloween decorations and candy are Made in America
If you celebrate Halloween, you'll likely be devoting some time over the next few days to preparations. After all, it's just over a week away.
Purchasing candy and/or decorations? The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) hopes you'll be keeping it 'Made in the U.S.A.'
Of course, we'd never leave you out there alone sans a little bit of guidance. Our $.02:
If a lighting display is part of your holiday decorating, check out Olympic Holiday Lighting. Based in Port Angeles, Washington, Olympic Lighting creates indoor/outdoor LED light decorations for just about any occasion.
And regarding the sweet stuff: The AFL-CIO put together a great list of American-made candy produced by union members.
