A public service announcement from our resident Village Idiot


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).
