Game on! The Chicago Reader is hosting their annual “Best of Chicago” competition and we need your help! Please vote for Labrabbit in the “Best Eyewear” category, the ballot can be found here. This tiny shop won in 2011 and 2012, which means it’ll be a “three-peat” if Labrabbit can win again this year. There are lots of categories, but you can vote in as many or as few as you like. Big thanks in advance, we can do this!
We’re happy to introduce the latest arrival to our growing family of brands: Aframes Eyewear! Designed locally and handmade in Istanbul by our friends at RVS Eyewear, classic styles and bold geometries go head-to-head in this exciting new collection. And Aframes is a brand with a purpose: 5% of each sale is donated directly to Helen Keller International to fund the manufacturing and distribution of vitamin A supplements in Africa and Asia. Vitamin A deficiency is the #1 cause of childhood blindness, and every frame sold helps save the sight and lives of three children. Drop by the shop and check these frames out in person!
And finally, just a heads-up: The shop will be closed from May 9th-12th. See you again on the 13th!
