sad shape of US manufacturing, specially the literally 1,000 of small shops

when I moved to Portland Oregon in the late 70's I could go where I live
now and one some streets you would see one shop after another all busy.

In 81 or 82 i needed a cabinet for a project and the hard part was deciding
which shop to have it made not finding one. The one I found make a cabinet
just as good as any commercial unit vents and all. Unpainted was the grand
total of $40, they even arranged to have another shop paint it, since I picked
a color they used  and let them keep it until they used that color, it was $10.
So a total of $50 in 1980 dollars for a single cabinet.
