Cheap Imported-Looking Crap

A $12 dog pillow I bought at Atwoods this weekend gave me a pleasant surprise. After I returned home, I looked at the tag on the pillow.

For some reason, probably the cartoonish animals, the tag made me think the pillow was imported from an Asian place, possibly Singapore. Looking closer, I was pleasantly surprised to find the "Proudly Made in USA" symbol.

So there's at least one company in the US that can successfully compete and manufacture cheap imported-looking crap.

I'm encouraged.
