Congratulations to PAUL, our Customer of the Week!

Paul read about Eye Spy in the Chicago Reader, where we were named in the Best of Chicago 2009 issue! Let me tell you, it was a blast helping Paul choose some new frames. When he tried on these Theo frames, we all knew they were the ones!

It was love at first sight!

Way to go Paul, your new Theo frames look amazing and you’re our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

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!

WHOO! It’s that time again! What time? Time to crown a new CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

This week, we chose DAVID!

David already had two frames from Eye Spy when he stopped in to check out some new styles. Lucky for him we had a gaggle of Theo Frames in the store and couldn’t wait to see him in these *amazing* blue (and brown!) Theos!

Hey, waitaminute, where’s the brown? Well that’s the best part of this frame (okay, 2nd best, the best is how BLUE this Theo frame makes David’s eyes look!). The front of the frame is this lovely slate blue, but the top is chocolate brown!

It’s always nice to find frames with personality.

David also chose to wear with the Hoya ID lens, which is a progressive lens that gives the wearer a wider field of vision. So walking up stairs won’t make him feel like he’s inside of some carnival trick house. Now, in his new Theo frames, he’ll have a smooth look, aesthetically and functionally.

Way to go David! You’re our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Giving Thanks

Written by on November 26th 2009

Here at Eye Spy, we have a lot to be thankful for: awesome eyeglasses that surround us all day long, a funky and colorful work environment, and Dinkel’s right across the street!

But, today, what we are most thankful for are the awesome awesome customers–you are all so much fun to have around!

You make our hearts go ZING!

What we are second most thankful for are the new frames that have been arriving all week!

First, the Theo invasion:

Theo’s classic metal style that we all know and looooove.

And new Theo plastics! Absence does make the heart grow fonder!
It’s been a while since Theo has made plastic frames and, yow, are we happy they’re back!

Then, we received the Lafont frames for our Trunk Show this weekend! The frames will only be here for the weekend, so if you want to see hundreds of Lafonts in dozens of colors, put on you hat and gloves and come over to Eye Spy! (Pssst…The Lafont trunk show will be on Saturday, November 28, from 11-5pm.)

ooooooh. ahhhhhh.

Look at all the kids frames we’ll have in the store this weekend!
(This is maybe one fifth of the kids frames we’ll have for the trunk show!!!)

So much to love…..

Dewitt has *Great* taste in frames! He’s not afraid of wearing funky frames, whether it’s a yellow Anne et Valentin or these incredible blue Theo frames!

This week, our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK, is a familiar face ’round these parts. He may just be the father of our royal Queen of Specs. Does that make him the King of Eyewear? In these Theo frames, yes, yes it does. So let’s all stand and cheer for our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK, Bob F.

Alissa chose these Theo frames especially for her dad, and wow does Bob look great! Lucky guy to have a daughter who can hook you up with Theo frames!

When it’s hot out, you gotta find new ways of stayin’ cool, Daddy-O

Congratulations, Bob! Your new Theo frames look ****awesome****

This week, we’ve chosen JASON as our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Jason actually bought his glasses in January. He started the year off right by buying TWO pairs of glasses; both fit his personality perfectly. One frame was a plastic Anne et Valentin and the other was this incredible blue and brown THEO titanium frame:

When we were trying to choose a customer of the week, we just couldn’t resist how awesome these frames look on Jason!

Congratulations, Jason, what a great choice!

oops! We took a little nap and forgot to choose a CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK last week, so today, we’re naming TWO, that’s right, TWO CUSTOMERS OF THE WEEK!

First, congratulation to MARY D

Mary chose a delightful RED frame by THEO. The color and the shape make her brown eyes look so big and pretty! Great choice, Mary!

Our second CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK is our neighbor, SANDY D. Sandy isn’t used to wearing her glasses all the time, so she chose a light and subtly sparkley frame to make her feel and look comfortable and fun at the same time.

I am soooo into BLUE

Written by on January 24th 2009

Oh dear, it’s not even Valentine’s Day yet and I am so head over heels in LOVE!

No bouquet is complete without a pair of Theos.

I looked around me the other day and found myself surrounded by beautiful BLUE frames!

Ambushed by beauty.

All shapes and sizes!

You can show me a round any time!

With rhinestones!
Without rhinestones!

Hello? Is it me you’re looking for?…YES!


Stainless steel!

Go ahead and grant me three wishes, but I swear to gosh, my dreams have come true and they are BLUE!
