For the Ladies + New Packaging

We have a new style now available in our shop; a women's round cateye frame in Teak wood. We will soon have several other wood species available but Teak is so pretty. I love this frame because it's dainty and soft, with purple tinted lenses and such a unique shape. They are available in limited quantities here.

Also, we have been experimenting in some new packaging. Before, we would put the glasses right into a cloth bag, but once you take the glasses out, they have lint and other fuzzes on them, so now, after we clean them, we seal them in a plastic bag, and then place them in their cloth pouch.

Once they have been tucked away in their pouch, we wrap them in bubble wrap instead of popcorn (ugh, hate popcorn!) and we got shipping tubes from Uline to mail them in. We recently found out that if we ship in the flat rate boxes, they actually take longer than first class, because they wait until the bin is full before they are shipped.

I am really liking the way the product comes together. It's simple, eco-friendly, and complete. It feels good. I think I may actually stick with this for a while. But you know me, always changing things up.

Have a great weekend, we're heading into town tomorrow. I can't wait to get out of the house for the day. A much needed half day off. What are your plans for the weekend?
