I’ve believed that American Made is totally making a comeback for a while now, but to have that affirmed by Martha Stewart… AH I can’t deal. It’s BIG. It’s another sign that American Made is alive, well, and growing, which makes me so excited for our country.
Here are all the details: Martha Stewart Living is hosting the 3rd annual American Made Awards. Basically, she’s honoring and recognizing American Made companies of all different types. Tons of American Made brands have already been nominated for the awards. There are four categories: Style, Craft, Food, & Design, and four judges for each category. There will be 10 winners total. Martha Stewart is of course, head judge. The judges will choose 9 winners, and we get to vote online and choose one additional winner.
Voting online starts Sept 15 so def check back in to vote if you’re interested.
Not only is Martha Stewart Living honoring brands through the awards, they are also hosting a two day summit in NYC. I want to go SO bad. I’m still trying to figure out how I can make it work with my schedule, but there is a 50% chance I’ll be there so stay tuned.
Anyway, I’ve been seriously stalking all of the brands nominated since I heard about the Made In America Awards, so I wanted to share some of my favorite items!
This company has been American made since 2006. They have some pretty cute stuff on their website. Definitely a dark and edgy style. I found this awesome jumpsuit by them that I need to purchase, like NOW.
Ah I wish summer wasn’t coming to an end so I could wear these. Wait.. I live in San Diego! Great weather year round never sounded so good! Their website has so many shoe styles it’s ridiculous. I’ll definitely be stocking up on these made in USA beauts!
Nico is super intense about using coasters. Literally I swear he has spies watching to make sure I always use a coaster! We have so many sets of them around the house. I still might have to add these to our collection! [Get the above coaster set HERE]
So what do you think of my list? I wanted to give you guys a short list with a lot of variety, but there were literally 20 brands I was obsessed with in each category sooo… lets just say it took me a while to narrow it down to ten.
Definitely check out all of the finalists in the American Made Awards. If there are any you’re completely obsessed with please post them in the comments below so other readers can check them out.
