Claire Goldsmith Special Orders

Written by on April 23rd 2013

Attention all Claire Goldsmith fans!! We love Claire as much as all of you, so we’re sad to say we’ve sold the very last CG frame in the store. And since we’re always on the hunt for funky new frames, we’ve decided to say goodbye to one line and HELLO to a new one. We’ll be introducing a RES/REI, a totally awesome, sleek, new line from Italy within the next few days.




…Claire Goldsmith frames will still be available via special order. So if you just HAVE to own one of her gorgeous frames, and you just happen to stumble upon one that you love, we’re more than happy to place an order for you! In addition to that, our Oliver Goldsmith sunglass line (part of the CG line) is still available in store as well.

Also, Saturday, May 11th is our Oliver Goldsmith and Caroline Abram Trunk Show, so we’ll have plenty of new sunglasses and frames to check out!! See you soon!

Transported Back in Time with Claire & Oliver Goldsmith

Written by on April 28th 2012

We couldn’t wait to share our excitement for the Claire & Oliver Goldsmith trunk show we will be having in May!

In 1926, Philip Oliver Goldsmith revolutionized how sunglasses were being made.  At a time when cumbersome frames were being made from expensive metals and tortoiseshell, he started fashioning frames from brightly coloured acetates.  Sunglasses became not only a way to protect your eyes from the sun, but thanks to Goldsmith…they also became a fashion statement!

Icons such as Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Michael Cain adored them and the name Goldsmith became synonymous with stars and style.

I’ll give you the lowdown on Claire Goldsmith next week, you can drool over these iconic photographs in the meantime, ha!

Mom’s the Word On Saturday, May 12th!

Written by on April 14th 2012

Celebrate Mom’s Day with us on Saturday from 11 AM-5 PM! We will be having an Oliver and Claire Goldsmith Trunk Show…as well as massages, mimosas and munchies, just for mom!

Do you need to get a present for mom, but can’t figure out what to get her? Or maybe she wants to get you a present! Lucky duck! Our rep from two of our vintage-inspiried collections, Claire Goldsmith and Oliver Goldsmith, will be on-hand. In her trunks, she will have of glasses upon glasses in every shape in color…and sunglasses that will make anyone look like a movie star! On Saturday only from 11-5 PM.


Claire Goldsmith is the debut collection of vintage-inspired frames from the great-granddaughter of the iconic eyewear designer Oliver Goldsmith. For three generations, Oliver Goldsmith combined beautiful materials, acetates and hinges with simple and classic style, to create some of the most iconic eyewear in the world. Claire re-established the company in 2005 after a 20 year hiatus, to continue the legacy of the Goldsmith family.

Oliver Goldsmith has been a family-run business for over 80 years. Originally, dress designers approached Goldsmith to create frames to complement their collections. Grace Kelly, Michael Caine, Peter Sellers, Nina Simone and Audrey Hepburn made OG synonymous with stars and style. The rest is history. Now you can get your mum a pair of OG sunglasses and make her look like a star too;-)

Our massage therapist, Adreana Maurer, will be giving powerful back massages from 12-3 PM. In order to relax before your massage, have a mimosa or two…

See you soon!
