Our Customer of the Week is Corey!

Corey scored these awesome one-of-a-kind handmade frames at our annual January Sale!  We love his geek chic look in his new Rapp frames.  The deep red shade is a neutral tone and perfect for everyday glasses.  Rapp frames are like art pieces with details such as matte finishes, unique shapes, and limited productions.

Wonderglasses are Here!!!

Written by on December 7th 2011
  We just received a divine German eyewear collection…
It kinda feels like a gift from heaven…or maybe just a fab present for the holidays;-) 

Blutgeschwister is an awesome German apparel line with kitschy styles and patterns.  They asked a local German optician (and DJ!) to design and line of eyewear with the same philosophy…and voila!  Inspired by the 70′s and 80′s, Wonderglasses mixes top-quality metals and acetate with fresh colors and designs. This line is brand-spanking new and only has one other account in the whole entire U.S.!
Here is a little taste to get you in the mood…

Wonderglasses Soron & Florida Scrub Jay
Wonderglasses Rollergirl & Lass Mich Kussen
Wonderglasses Expedition Everest & Private Eye

Wednesdays with Dr. Brad Newton!!!

Written by on August 10th 2011
What’s black, white, and red all over?  Dr.Brad Newton after a shaving accident!  Just kidding, it’s actually Brad wearing vibrant red Theo glasses and an awesome black and white button-down shirt… 
This model, soixante+5, is super retro with its perfectly round shape and keyhole bridge.  The fire engine red hue is a head-turner, but if red is not exactly your style…it comes in 9 other colors including white, blue, and green!  The whole Theo collection is handmade in Belgium and each piece is like a unique piece of art.

Written by on April 11th 2009

Wow, it was a tough choice this week! Everyone had big smiles not only because of their awesome new specs! But also because (even though it’s been cold and windy) the sun came out this week!

After a difficult deliberation process and many long hours in the judges room, we have decided upon a CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK! So, congratulations to JOHN P!

John chose a classic frame by Lafont. It is part of their reedition series of frames. Classic shapes made modern with improved materials and manufacturing.

Don’t they make his blue eyes BLUE?!

Congratulations, John!

And a reminder–for the whole month of April, Eye Spy is celebrating a GREEN SCENE. If you ride your bike or the CTA to Eye Spy, you get 10% off a pair of Rx specs. If you donate an old pair of glasses, you receive $25 off a new pair of Rx frames! So come on by and celebrate a greener earth with Eye Spy!
