It’s that time of the year again. Time for us Americans to exercise our constitutional rights to barbecue, soak up the sun, and celebrate in the name of the U.S. of A. It’s the FOURTH OF JULY! What better way is there to commemorate our beautiful country than by buying products made right here in America? Here are a few of the key items needed to survive your Fourth of July weekend.
THE PK GRILL
PORTABLE KITCHEN: LITTLE ROCK, AR
This is one of the finest aluminum charcoal grills money can buy. It’s got a great, classic look and is small and mobile enough to travel around with you. It’s a great price as well at $280. My mouth is already watering thinking about the hotdogs and burgers that will be made on this grill.
STAR SPANGLED SPATULAS
AREAWARE: BROOKLYN, NY & COLUMBUS, OH
Every grill needs it’s trusty sidekick, the spatula. Not only are these spatulas cute and festive, but they are extremely durable. AreaWare makes their spatulas with a heat-resistant nylon resin head that can withstand the flaming heat of the grill. A nice Americanized meal undoubtedly must be accompanied with only the best American-made products.
ICE MASTER COOLER
PETERBORO BASKET COMPANY: PETERBOROUGH, NH
While the air gets hot, keep your drinks cold with this insulated cooler. It’s made of sturdy Appalachian white ash on the outside and high-density Styrofoam on the inside. Fill it with all of your favorite beverages to stay cool and sated all weekend.
ST. PIERRE MANUFACTURING CORPORATION: WORCESTER, MA
What’s Fourth of July weekend without some yard games? Horseshoes are always a fan favorite and is great for people of all ages, so the whole family can join in on the fun.
GODDESS GARDEN: BOULDER & LONGMONT, CO
Most people spend their weekend outside in the sun and water, so, sunscreen is essential. Green Goddess Sunscreen is the highest certified organic sunscreen there is, so it’s one of the best things you can put on your skin. On top of that, it reflects a whopping 97% of the sun’s rays. No burns here!
