Eyeglass Crisis Fundraiser! 20% off in BOTH shops!

What is a person to do when her eyeglasses are completely ruined by 6 pounds of pooch? Why, have a sale!

Or a fundraiser.

Glasses are not exactly inexpensive to replace, my friends, particularly if your most recent vision exam is over a year old. I think any optician is obligated to put my eyes through the Spanish Inquisition with my vision after 12 months, and it's been closer to 24 months.

So, in order to afford a new pair of glasses (and to ensure continued tight quality control on your orders), I'm having a 20% off sale in both my shops through Friday, June 13, 2008! If you're ordering through, simply put optician in the discount code box at checkout to receive your 20% discount. If you're ordering from Annie Howes on Etsy, put "optician" in the notes to seller box at checkout. I'll send you a revised invoice. This includes all custom orders.

Here's my pitiful attempt to repair them using E-6000 and a little creativity.

You might want to try the GlassyEyes blog for links to reputable discount eyeglass and sunglass places. One place they list is Zenni Optical, but there are others, and with reviews.
