Hi John, it was great to finally meet you in Asheville.
Handmade in USA no longer exists. Its just Handmade. As for imports, I've had many craftspeople tell me not to place them next to imports. Well, I think most of the time they mean the made in China stuff or heavy ethnic handicrafts. But they are never very clear about this. I just want to make sure that people know if they do a gift show, their neighbor may design their crafts here in the USA, but have them made, by hand, overseas. Some folks consider those imports (maybe they are, technically)and take offence.
Anyways, keep up the good work. Loved your article in TCR.
