Labrabbit Optics Grand Opening: If you don't want to wear glasses now... surely will once you visit Labrabbit Optics, now open at its new location!

If you recall, my first encounter with Labrabbit Optics was at the Vintage Bazaar. It was there that I met the owner Coyote DeGroot, purchased my first pair of vintage frames AND placed an order for a slick pair of tortoise Shuron specs. Coyote informed me that his table, that was completely covered with frames, was only a small percentage of his entire stock. Needless to say, when he invited me to last week's grand opening, I was determined to pop in to check out the merchandise.

Located in the Ukranian Village only steps away from Kokorokoko and Dusty Groove, Labrabbit Optics fits right in with the eclectic crowd that frequents the area.

The variety of frames available in this small storefront is beyond overwhelming. Even if you don't need to wear glasses, you will feel compelled to buy a pair. Sunglasses wearers need not fret because there's also a slew of shades. Whatever your lifestyle or occupation, you'll find something to fit your eyewear needs AND wants. Imagine that.

Next on my personal wishlist are the tiger horn frames shown above (bottom left). Coyote informed me that they are designed by PRISM London and Labrabbit Optics is the only store between the two coasts that carries the brand. Can you say "exclusivity"?!

To shop online, visit Please note that everything is not available on the website. Hence, if you're in Chicago, I encourage you to drop by the new store and take a gander.

Based on the amount of people that attended the grand opening, I'm certain that Labrabbit Optics will be successful in its new digs. My purchases, alone, may be able to sustain the shop for awhile. Only kidding......maybe.
