As we head into September and the upcoming Fall season everyone who reads this blog on a somewhat regular basis (all 2 of you) know that in addition to back to school and football, Fall also means that we have an excuse to buy lots and lots of new product for the shop.

Hi... this post is for you... you know who you are...the one with the glasses purchased at the place where you buy toilet paper in bulk. I know... you saved a chunk of change by buying that made in China masterpiece that adorns your face...yep, the one with the flaking finish and fancy spring hinges...that stopped springing back in 2004. I'm not passing judgement...ok that's a lie...I am... I'm not very tactful...ask my ex-wife.
Anywhoo...don't take this wrong way..I'm all in favor of saving money...I'm just saying that maybe there are better places to save it instead of on the item that goes on your face...you know the one that you actually SEE out of.
If I had a dollar for every time I see someone who spent more money (usually much more) on their watch or shoes or tie or handbag than they did on their eyeglasses...well then I'd buy all of you nice glasses... but until then consider this: The average pair of well made glasses should last about 5 times longer than a poorly made one. We have customers who purchased titanium frames from us back in 1995 and they are still enjoying them. YES...1995...I'm not great at math but I think that works out to like .22 cents a year...or something. I think I even had hair back in 1995... which means their glasses outlasted my hair...which is kind of depressing actually.
So before I step off of my soapbox (I actually don't own a soapbox) I'd like to invite you to stop in and say hi... take a look at our inventory of over 7000 frames in almost every price range (besides free) and let's see if we can convince you to SEE things our way (bad pun intentional).

...this is just the tip of the iceberg (insert Titanic reference here)... we also have new stuff from Mykita, Sama, Menizzi, Jeremy Tarian, Freudenhaus, FRED, Diesel, Tom Davies, Theo, Oliver Peoples, Dilem, Maui Jim... and much, much more... If I can pull myself away from staring at the walls and talking to my imaginary friends I will post more pics...but if you can't wait, stop in and check everything out in person...We hope to see you soon.

Coming off of our busiest week ever (by more than than 30%)...our busiest month ever... and our busiest year ever, there's not much more I can say other than 'Thank You' to our loyal customers and our fantastic staff.
As we work to fulfill everyones orders from the end of 2011, we are already planning big things for 2012. Coming soon we will be introducing the Baltimore market to Tom Davies and his wonderful concept of "Made to Measure" eyewear. If I had a quarter for every time I've heard "I wish this frame came one size smaller" or "I wish it came in this color" or "I wish this frame was semi-rimless"... well I'd have a whole bunch of quarters.
That's about to change... stay tuned... more to come... Happy New Year!

2 days left in 2011!! Did you max out your Flex Spending account?? No... not your credit card account (Hi Mom)... your flex dollars may pull a Cinderella and turn into a pumpkin at the end of the day Saturday if you don't act now. (Yeah... a little overly dramatic, but we sell eyeglasses here - there's not much drama in our line of work. So don't rain on our parade.) We will be open today (Friday) 10-6 and tomorrow (Saturday) 10-5. Even if there's a small amount remaining on your account we can probably figure out a way to help you. We're like the MacGyver of flex spending...besides who wants some nameless, faceless corporation keeping your money? That's what government is for. So keep your money someplace safe...in front of your eyes where you can see it. Happy New Year everybody!

Oh... and for those procrastinating about their flexible spending dollars, we haven't forgotten you either. Ask how we can help you maximize your remaining dollars by structuring your purchase over both the 2011/2012 calendar years. Unfortunately you can't buy a decades supply of geritol or advil anymore so let us make sure your money dosen't get lost...even if it's only a small amount we can help.
Hopefully we'll see everyone soon. If not today we will be in our regular hours next week:
Tuesday - Friday 10-6 and Saturday 10-5. If you need an eye exam, Doc Larry is in Friday 10-6 and has a few openings still available. Call us @ 410.528.1877 to schedule a time.
We at Paris West hope everyone has a wonderful weekend... Happy Holidays!
