Eyes on Fremont giving thanks this holiday season

In light of the holiday season, Eyes on Fremont wanted to give back to some part of our community that deserves our recognition for what they have given. This year we would like to acknowledge the efforts and service of Veterans through SOLDIERS ANGELS

For each complete pair purchased at our shop starting December 15th through the end of the year, we are gratefully donating a pair of glasses to the Puget Sound chapter of Soldiers Angels, an organization that provides support & living services for the growing number of Veterans in our area. 

It is a small gesture on our part, but one that we hope generates more awareness to a group of people who deserve our appreciation for giving so much for our community. 

For more information about this organization, check out www.soldiersangels.org

Customers Around the Shop: Darci

The sun is always shining in Darci’s world… therefore, a great butterscotch P3 frame fitted with transitions photochromic lenses powers her through the ins & outs of daily life. 
There’s an eye-catching warmth to her glasses and jewelry aesthetic here that we are really digging at the moment. 🙂

Fall Kick-off: Peep a few super new colors & styles from 141 Eyewear, view Seattle’s Supermoon, and get ready for a surge of new Fall inventory!

Wasn’t that a stellar harvest moon eclipse last night? It was a treat to see, and Seattle had the pleasure of clear skies to view it:

Well, it feels like a grand way to initiate & invite some new things into our lives.

In EYES ON FREMONT’S world, one of many new things we are excited about are the arrival of new fall frames! Every year this time, we hit Silmo Paris and hand-pick new styles and collections from all of our fave independent eyewear designers, so STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES!

For now, we are loving the new colors and models from our favorite NW collection, 141 Eyewear.

Here’s a look at a few so you get the idea:  

Getting to know your EOF Optician: David H!

 How Long with Eyes on Fremont: 

David has been leading the EOF team since October 2010! 

His key Position: 

General manager & overseer of daily activities around the Shop, David’s like the head coach of the team.  David’s the man who keeps operations smooth & calls the shots, as needed. The guy who takes one for the team when the going gets tough customer service-wise.  

The highlights & scores of David’s Time off the Clock:

If it hasn’t been made abundantly clear yet, our beloved manager is a huge football enthusiast & supporter of our Seattle team, THE SEAHAWKS. So begins a busy season for him- Sunday afternoon trips to Safeco Field or front & center with couch seats in front of the living room flat screen! 

He spends the rest of his quality time with his wife & 3 young sons, going on adventures to amusement parks & playing the ideal domestic homemaker. To decompress, video gaming in the company of the lil tykes happens between work and sports. 🙂
