The Covid Pandemic has forever changed life as we knew it. Social distancing, masking or not masking, curbside pick up, remote learning, to vaccinate or not to vaccinate, businesses are short staffed, the list goes on and on.
The dire media warnings of product and food shortages are driving people to hoard shop once again. Certain shelves in our stores are sparsely stocked, if not bare, and the very real fact that shipping containers are sitting in USA ports unloaded, is truly unimaginable for the twenty first century. Numerous trucks are waiting outside the fenced in ports to be loaded, but the unloading cranes aren't operating. Why is that? No one seems to know for certain.
With that said, I would like to encourage the American people to support and shop your local American artisans and businesses, in person or online, this Holiday Season.You don't have to worry about American made products being stuck on shipping containers!
Etsy is a wonderful e-commerce platform that supports handmade goods and gifts. You will find an abundance of American Artisans and their wares on Etsy. I suggest all online shoppers to place your orders by Thanksgiving to give USPS, UPS, Fed Ex and DHL a bit of wiggle room for delivery times. They, too, are dealing with the effects of the pandemic and are short staffed.
Cedar Hill Botanicals USA handmade aromatherapy & personal care products make great Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers for everyone on your list this year. Grab your favorite beverage, kick back in your favorite chair and peruse what all we have to offer.
Buy American Made. Support American Businesses. God Bless.
