What NC Products can be Boycotted?

NC has voted, and now I'm going to vote as well. I vote to boycott them. Obviously, I won't be vacationing there. Help me out if you please. What else can I do? How can I make sure not a single penny of my money (outside of the mandatory tax dollars) goes to NC?

5. How about furniture and carpeting?

It seems to me that I have heard North Carolina is a maker of furniture and carpeting. And I believe that we need to check to see which carpet manufacturers are owned by the Koch Brothers and if the carpeting is produced in North Carolina. hmmmm. . . .

7. I don't eat pork (usually) and I suspect that all other farm products I do consume....

...are from farms in my state. But it's probably worth looking into and seeing if any major, U.S. pork product company is located in NC. Like a "Farmer John's." The sort that distributes breakfast sausages and such nation wide.

Or more to the point, make it clear to DNC that their choice of venue has been compromised.
