I am seeking a wood (or metal) crib (not MDF) that is made in the US. I'm checking into Pacific Rim and some Amish ones; does anyone else have any suggestions on brands/Web sites to check out?

(Side note - it IS so hard to find much of anything not made in China and/or made in the US anymore!)

I think some of their other cribs are made in the US too.

I hear you! It's so tough to find stuff not in China. Here's one, but it's $800.

We got our crib from an Amish guy who is my grandma's neighbor in Iowa. He has a shop and makes everything right there. We've gotten other furniture from him - sometimes he outsources to other men in the Amish community across the country.

The quality is unbelievable - and it wasn't much more than what you would pay at a place like Pottery Barn (). So if you can find a local craftsman (Amish or otherwise), you may want to give them a try...

Here is an article on Stanley Furniture Co. which has brought its crib manufacturing back to the USA:

 

http://www.themadeinamericamovement.com/2/post/2012/05/a-crib-for-baby-made-in-china-or-made-in-usa.html

 

The cribs can be seen here, and are also largely in the $800 range. They have awesome quality and color choices (and since they are painted in the USA, they are free of lead paint):
