Made Somewhere Other than China

I’ve had a few “Made in China” posts over the past few months. Why are so many things “Made in China”? Cheap labor is a good starting point. But the Ex-GF has a cheap silver pendant with a cactus on it, picked up while driving around the Southwest. On the back, it says “Made in Holland.”

Holland is not the last country I’d have picked as the location of that pendant, but its close. I wonder how that happened.
