Run by Christina, Gemma and Graham, we are surrounded by wonderful glasses which we have sold online since 2004. Note that we are online only!

Email or call us if you need any help at all - we will do our absolute best! We are not just a faceless website - we are real people that want you to be delighted with your very special glasses.


We really do try and help as much as we can and are proud to have a high level of returning customers from all over the world.

Never ordered glasses online before? Give it a try - we think you will be very pleasantly surprised at just how easy it is!

Great choice and great value will have you looking great - why wear ordinary?

This site was created to allow you to choose the shape and style of glasses that YOU want, not be limited to what opticians want you to buy.

Furthermore, we did not just want to get chinese copies made of different styles, so we have spent years tracking down old stock living in forgotten corners of warehouses. This means that you get the best of both worlds - "the real thing" - branded Designer vintage frames -  that are still brand new (just been in storage for a while!). 

When you have your eyes tested the prescription belongs to you, you DO NOT HAVE TO BUY YOUR FRAMES FROM THE SAME OPTICIAN THAT DOES YOUR EYE TEST. You are free to "shop around" for the style that suits you and makes you look (and feel) good.
