I had put this story and video on my Facebook page a few weeks ago. 
In honor of this very “American” day today, July 4th, I thought I would share it again with all of you.
You all know Starbucks.

Here is the story of how ceramic manufacturing has made a comeback in Ohio.

Ulrich Honighausen, mentioned in the video,  owns Hausenware, a ceramics company in Northern California for whom I did A LOT of work for many years! (We still use many of my plates and mugs!)

This is the New York Times video (you have to click through, it won’t let me embed here) describing this comeback of American goods via Starbucks:
