Let's celebrate this 4th of July by buying good 'ole Made in the USA. Thanks to the magic of Etsy, you can grab all of these handmade and/or vintage goodies for your own BBQ or give one item as a hostess gift. Many of these sellers have rush orders available, so it's not too late. See where to buy after the jump.




Clockwise from top left:
  1. What better way to celebrate America than by ensuring each guest can wash his or her hands with handmade American flag soap made by Jessica Bunderson
  2. Bunting is key to any celebration, especially when it's made of hearty AmURkin burlap, like this handmade chain by HerBeautifulLife.
  3. Strategically place throw pillows so that your friends think you are this patriotic all year round. Available from JoshuabyOak.
  4. White chocolate dipped oreos in red, white and blue. Need I say more? Available from Irishitalianwedding
  5. Someone HAS to own this amazing set of vintage melamine plates. No need to throw away paper plates with these babies on hand. Available from cormorantnest
  6. I love mason jars. I love when bars put drinks in them, I love them at weddings, I love them when they are filled with jam. Have some at your party, and get 'em from bittersweetlemonade
  7. USA! USA! USA! Cookies by Katie Duran

For most Americans, no BBQ is complete without the meat, so allow me to recommend buffalo burgers. Nothing is more American than serving up a key character from The Oregon Trail, right? And you can get your buffalo right here in DC, this Sunday morning at the Dupont Circle Farmer's Market. Look for the Cibola Farms stand-- everything they produce is delicious, sustainably raised, and fair.

Happy Friday!
