If every American purchased one USA made product per year the impact would be $9 billion. That creates an amazing amount of jobs for U.S. workers!

America's Business to Consumers Inc. continues U.S. manufacturers the venue to sell products. Given a choice between American made items and similar products made overseas, consumers would rather buy the American product, according to a nationally representative survey by the Consumer Reports National Research Center.

USAB2C American made products run the gamut from ladies’, men’s and children’s apparel to Arts & Crafts, toys, tools, home goods, outdoor/camping equipment, kitchen, lighting and kid’s furniture in time for Christmas and Hanukkah shopping.

This holiday, the Kepner Scott Shoe Company, the oldest surviving children’s shoe manufacturer in America, is featured.

For the past 121 years, more than 10 million pairs of Kepner Scott Shoes have been worn by children throughout the world. It all began in 1888, at the height of the Industrial Revolution, when Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania, was emerging as a footwear manufacturing hub. That same year, Kepner Scott Shoe Co. was founded. By 1913 Orwigsburg was home to eleven shoe manufacturers collectively producing over 1.4 million pairs of children’s shoes annually. Following Mr. Kepner’s death in 1913, Miss Elsie Hartman purchased Kepner Scott and led the company through two World Wars and the Great Depression. In 1961 their Grandfather, Milo H. Zimmerman and three of his sons purchased Kepner Scott Shoe Co. In the 1960’s the children’s shoe market was dominated by “stiff” uncomfortable “welted” shoes. Comfort and flexibility were being sacrificed for durability. Milo believed children needed soft, flexible and comfortable shoes. Milo and his son Clair embarked on a mission to design and craft healthier children’s shoes.

The result of this vision is the finely crafted shoes available at USAB2C. An example is this children’s T-strap leather upper shoe with cushioned insoles and flexible unit soles.

Chief Operations Officer George P. Hanos maintains, "On, customers can browse an online catalog and order products sourced from USAB2C Certified American manufacturers through a safe and secure website. The effort to identify and make available American made products is ongoing.”

USAB2C’s founders are intent on providing US products while simultaneously minimizing exposure to inferior materials found at times in Asian imports, particularly seen in toys. The “Made in the USA News” section presents consumers with daily stories concerning “Product Recalls”, “New Product Introductions” and related retailing / safety news.
