Theo Trunk Show this Saturday!!!

Written by on November 1st 2011
The Theo trunk show is finally here!!! Saturday, November 5th you will be able to view and try on hundreds of Theo frames. If you like funky shapes and tend to be a trend-setter…Theo is the perfect frame line for you. The Theo wearer wants quality, originality, and exclusivity.

In 1989, Theo introduced its ground breaking collection in Antwerp, Belgium to offer the public frames that were not typically seen in the mainstream. The designers wanted a collection that appealed to the individualist, frames worn not only as a necessity but as a unique art piece . Theo also introduced the Eyewitness Collection in 1995 which is an asymmetrical line designed to be in harmony with your individual face!

Trunk shows are a good way to see 2011 collections in 2012. Below is a sneak peek of some new styles that were shown at the trade show in Paris last month and will be here on Saturday. Don’t forget – if you would like to view the Theo frames on Sunday just call for an appointment!

 
 

Our customers love Theo frames, the lower photo is Barbara wearing a frame from the Eyewitness line:)


Stay tuned for a posting about the Mykita trunk show on Saturday, November 12th.  Mykita frames are known for their flexible, lightweight design and patented screwless hinge concept.

We are officially open on Mondays from 11am-7pm, now through the end of January.  No need for an appointment…just stop on in!!!

GIVE to a good cause! GET awesome glasses! Whatta deal!

Written by on December 10th 2010
This is going to be an extraordinary weekend at Eye Spy!
We have new Anne et Valentins in stock–all part of the latest collection and we can’t wait to see them on our customers!
We also have decided to help out a local organization that’s in some need. The Howard Brown Health Center is trying to achieve a fundraising goal of $500,000. Thanks to the generous donations of strangers AND friends, they are 80% of the way to their goal, but every little bit helps and we want to lend a helping hand.
SO, we are donating 1% of our profits for this weekend (Saturday, December 11 and Sunday, December 12) to the Howard Brown Health Center.
We’ll also have some hot cocoa and delicious cookies for our friends who brave the cold, YUM!


Too many flex dollars, not enough time? At Eye Spy, we accept flex dollars and will make sure that you find quality handmade glasses as well as the best possible lenses for your prescription. Just ask and we’ll be happy to help you find an *awesome* new pair of specs!
