The Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of American History recently opened the Price of Freedom Store, a gift shop that sells only merchandise that was made in the USA.
The idea for the store came about at the behest of US Senator Bernard Sanders, an Independent from Vermont. He became upset over the lack of American made products in the museum’s gift shop during a visit there with his family over Christmas time.
He later met with Smithsonian officials who pledged to look for more American made products.
During a visit to the museum and new gift shop this week, Sanders expressed his gratitude to museum officials for their concern and congratulated them on their swift reaction.
