Buy domestic!

I try to purchase items made here. Frankly, it ain't easy. Even the lowly, albeit absolutely necessary light bulb is no longer made domestically. God forbid the Chinese get mad at us, we'll be burning earwax candles for illumination.

Recently, I was looking for a simple, drying rack, something I could hang jeans and towels on. Those two items alone are responsible for global warming, they take so much heat to dry thoroughly. The jeans shrink and the tall people in my home look nerdier than usual. Unfortunately, every rack available out there is expensive AND cheaply made of flimsy metal and plastic.

Just as I was about to throw in the towel (so to speak) I found this little web site that advertised The Best Drying Rack - that's a tall order, considering the plethora of throw-aways and high priced junk out there.

Made of solid maple and metal components, this thing is by far the best portable rack available. Not only good for drying your clothes, if you're into homemade pasta, this would make a terrific drying rack for that - although I wouldn't recommend you do both at the same time.



Imagine - something made to last DECADES. Almost unheard of. Reasonably priced, better than anything available.

Made in Missouri.

If you're in the market for domestically made quality gardening tools, take a peek at their sister site here.
