Before I ordered these, I inquired as to country of origin. I was advised "USA." Imagine my surprise to open the box and see these mugs were made in China. I don't appreciate being lied to. I further don't appreciate paying the equivalent of $* each for something made in China. I had seen "made in China" mugs in local stores for much less but elected to buy a "made in USA" product. Several of the mugs have flaws in the finish, which indicate to me they are "factory seconds" being sold at a price beyond their worth. I hope the Overstock.com staff will update the website to show truthful information about these mugs. This colors my willingness to do business with your company in the future.
