Holiday Gift Guide Volume 2 - Bel Air Edition: Oliver Peoples, Jono Hennessey and Zen Barcelona

 It's Small Business Saturday! You know what that means right? Of course, you do. You shake off your turkey induced stupor, hop in your car, and drive to your nearest Wal-Mart/Best Buy/Target/Mall and spend an hour looking for a parking space for the right to wrestle with your neighbors for that $36.89 TV or limited edition toaster oven/blender/hair dryer.

No... not really.

It means you support your locally owned and home grown small businesses that provide jobs, services and unique products for your community. And in this case helps Aubrey feed her 3 adorable (and hungry) children. (yes this is a gratuitous attempt to tug at your heart strings... if it doesn't work I'm breaking out pictures of sad puppies and kittens next time)

Besides... we have lots of new beautiful items in Bel Air ...including new limited edition silk embedded frames from Australian designer Jono Hennessey.

Also some funky interpretations of classic styles from Spanish design house - Zen Barcelona. And actual vintage designs from long time favorite Oliver Peoples. Rumor has it theres also a fresh coat of paint and free coffee too. What more could you ask for? So avoid the traffic and parking hassles of the mall or box stores (we have easy and free parking) and stop in and pick up a unique gift or gift certificate. Then afterwards you can stroll down Main Street (in actual authentic fresh air) grab some lunch and check out all the cool things our neighbors have to offer. Have a happy Saturday!

Holiday Gift Guide. Volume 1- Downtown Edition: DITA, Bevel, Blake Kuwahara

 As we head towards the Holidays at a breakneck pace (Mentally I'm still in July...of 2001) it's time to start planning what to buy your significant and insignificant others for the Holidays. Or, if you're lucky and you have a stockpile of expiring Flexible Spending Dollars, you can plan on what to get for yourself.
 Since we have 2 locations (YES, really... that was so 2013) and they don't have identical inventories we will be doing various updates for both locations. This is for the one downtown...Bel Air will have lots of beautiful options available as well (some will be featured in forthcoming blog posts and on Facebook). Also look for a new store renovation (and a new haircut for Aubrey... maybe)

 In any event lets start with some old favorites: Bevel and DITA as well as a new collection from one of our all time favorite designers: Blake Kuwahara.

 We have beautiful optical and sunglass options from all 3 collections in the shop if there's a family member or friend or co-worker who's still rocking the free insurance glasses they got in 1996 then you know what to do. And as always, GIFT CERTIFICATES are available.
