Our New Location
Our New Store Is Open
Many of you have noticed our storefront in Lindenwood has been empty since the begining of November 2018. We opened up in mid-December in Floral Park on Covert Ave.
We've recently brought in several new lines of frames - Europa, Cote d'Azure, Scott Harris, Michael Ryen, LeGre, and Cafe Boutique. We've also updated the lines we already carried with new styles from Club Level Design, Line Art, and Eddie Bauer.
You can visit our new website here:
The new store looks great! We hope that all that can will come visit us here. For those that can't because it is too far, we thank you for using us in the past, and we wish you well.
