The Retail Therapy Cure for Global Buyer’s Remorse

There’s a certain sense of pride that comes from living in the land of opportunity, invention and creation.  From the car to the computer, the skateboard to the stereo – they all originated here first.  As for where each of those items is produced these days … now that’s something different altogether.  It’s practically impossible to get through a news cycle that doesn’t include a story related to a slew of jobs and/or major manufacturing moving overseas.  But heck, half of us drive Japanese cars that are assembled in Mexico and the majority of us chat on phones made in China. It’s enough to give a girl a bad case of the red, white and serious blues.  Thankfully, this is one time when a little retail therapy truly IS the answer.

OHSAY USA is an online marketplace that exclusively sells products manufactured in the United States. Founders Sherry Holdridge and Vanessa Morgan opened their virtual doors last summer in an effort to create a centralized location to offer Made in the USA goods at honest prices.  And the site, filled with retro favorites and quality custom items, is a hit.

“There is certainly no shortage of fantastic products made close to home,” explains Holdridge.  “Our goal is to increase demand, awareness and ultimately create more manufacturing jobs across the nation.  Then, as the company gains traction, we add more jobs locally in Austin as well.”

Sushi + Sake SOCIAL at Mizu


ALM’s September Sushi+Sake Social at Mizu was nothing short of amazing on Wednesday, September 26. Austin Lifestyle Magazine celebrated its September issue which features cover girl, Eva Longoria, alongside all the great faces of Austin.

As soon as you walk into Mizu, there’s an instant feeling of serenity accompanied with a gorgeous view and an open feel. Plenty of ALM September issues were placed visibly for everyone to take home. Guests were entertained with great music, complementary sake, drink specials and, of course, the amazing food. Upon entering Mizu, you were encouraged to enter your name into the door prizes giveaway, which several lucky individuals had the pleasure of taking home. The prizes included the 60-minute massage from Massage Harmony and the blo out & head massage from Blo Blow Dry Bar at the Domain, amongst others.

The September Sushi+Sake Social was definitely one to be remembered, with hill country views, friends and music by the very talented, Daniel Park.
