Made in China. It seems that stamp is staring us all in the face. China isn’t our friend right now. The more we buy from them, the more we bury ourselves. We would all love to buy American made but the problem has become that so much just isn’t made in America anymore.
We have come up with a viable work around for right now that keeps your hard-earned dollars circulating here in the USA where they can benefit us all rather than being sent overseas possibly to fund our own demise.
Shop local and second hand.
There are so many things that we can buy gently used in our own hometowns – Thrift shops, second hand stores, consignment shops, and of course pawn shops. When you shop at one of these retailers you are keeping your money in the local economy rather than sending it to another country.
If you can find American made – fantastic. We also encourage you to buy from these companies. Many items such as tools, electronics, games, musical instruments, and even firearms are just not manufactured here. This is where the power of where you choose to spend your money comes into play.
Who do you support?
We are voting with our choices. When you choose to buy locally in a family pawn shop such as First Pawn Jewelry and Loan of Naples and Lehigh Acres, Florida you are directly contributing to the Southwest Florida economy.
The benefit to you is three-fold
- You get quality goods from the makers you know and trust overseas at a discounted rate and often at link new quality.
- You are supporting your country’s economy.
- You are not supporting China’s attempts to further influence and even own the USA.
This is a win-win-win with no downside.
If you are in the Southwest Florida area and looking for goods – we highly encourage you to stop in to First Pawn Jewelry and Loan. We have an amazing ever-changing stock in our showrooms and if you are looking for something special we are happy to keep an eye out for you as well.
