1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    It's really hard to find and it's a very small factory. Apart from the administrative and creative staff maybe 20-25 craftsmen. I could not find it by the GPS either; the address I got from the Carmina-people directed me to a residential area across the road. But regardless, they did not seem to have a factory outlet (like EG etc). They did seem to have a more or less permanent "discount shelf" in the Palma store though, maybe that's the best bet for a good discount deal on Carmina shoes while in Mallorca.

    sorry for ignorant question but is meermin part of carmina? there is a thread that implied that carmina has a 2nd brand. If it is part of carmina will you stock it as well?

    No; they're not part of the same co. The families of the owners are related.

    That's the big unknown. Meermin's history is too short to make any judgments about how they'll age. I'm hopeful, but it's hard to ignore that nagging feeling that anything that seems too good to be true . . .

    At least they weren't expensive. And Carmina seems to always be worth the cost.

    So ends my self imposed moritorium on purchases. I believe it's been about 4 months! :nodding:

    I'm a total sucker for a color. What can I say.

    I needed a little 'fix' to brighten my mood. Back to the office tomorrow. :cloud:
