Conversation #15: So long Martin & Osa

So admittedly, I have never purchased anything from the ill-fated Martin & Osa.  Not because I haven’t found a few things to adore, but because I just couldn’t bring myself to pay the prices.  However, with 50% off their website, I have definitely been finding items to oogle over.  However, when I finally decide to maybe buy, my size runs out.  It is okay because I shouldn’t be buying anything these days anyway.  I have shopped a lot lately, and with the hubby technically unemployed (at least with a real law job), I should probably not go crazy these days.  To break up these boring paragraphs, here is some eye candy from their online sale:

mando chambray shirt mando green cardi mando pink shirt mando red shawl cardi

Plus, I hate paying for shipping, and I’m just not buying $100 worth of items right now.  Side note,  has anyone been to a store lately (Freck by chance?) because I was wondering what percentage they are offering off there right now.  It was only 30% last week when I checked. 

Anyway, back to the story, while looking for promo codes though (a girl can hope), I read that Martin & Osa was named after a traveling couple from the humble state of Kansas.  Nobody ever talks about Kansas, unless referencing the Wizard of Oz, so I took notice.  I looked on Wikipedia, and it turns out that the real Martin and Osa were a pretty amazing couple that globe-trotted together for many years.  Now it kind of makes me wish I knew about this store sooner, because I just love Kansas (in case you didn’t know, I was born and raised there – I have only been in the country, oh I mean state, of Texas for about 6 years).  If you want to learn more about this couple, you should look them up here.
