American made souvenirs and handcrafts should be displayed and sold in our National Parks!

    Local artisans, small regional food producers and cultural groups have proven to be the driving forces in economic recovery, and in  creative tourism and eco-tourism in America.

    Tourism in the National Parks must be a quality experience for our citizens, and for foreign tourists, who find it increasingly difficult to find authentic American souvenirs to purchase as memories of their Park experience.

    In the past, some NPS concessionaires have openly expressed disdain at the idea of buying, and selling, American fine handcrafts. Many purchase souvenirs made cheaply overseas. These concessionaires  should NOT be given favorable consideration regarding new leases and should be pressed to shift their investments in inventory to American-made goods.
