Surprise - Happy Birthday Spectacle Emporium!

Surprise! We love a good celebration here at Spectacle Emporium, and we couldn't pass up an opportunity to go on the road at meet you all!

It's 2 years since we opened our doors to the public with our array of "alternative" eyewear and, true to form, we're bringing the shop to you! Meet us, and other fabulous indie retailers, at the Winter Market, The Bond in Digbeth, this Saturday 2nd December. A one day Urban Festival of Birmingham's best food, arts, drinks and retailers.

We started our journey in November 2015, promising to bring a change to the way people perceive eyewear, to celebrate innovation, design and craftsmanship; to enjoy a beautiful work of art that just so happens to fit at the end of the nose.

We didn't realise, however, that in the short 2 years of trading Spectacle Emporium would be a source of inspiration for opticians in and beyond Birmingham, that we would be invited to talk about the wonders of indie eyewear, or to be featured in national and international magazines!

We just love what we do - fitting faces with eyewear that express personality or character. I guess we really are the curators' choice. We're the go to place for the aficionados of Birmingham. I know that we're located in a quiet corner of Kings Heath, and that we're not the most accessible shop, I guess that makes us more determined to go out of our way to meet you! So join us this Saturday, and together we can celebrate the very best indie retailers of Birmingham!

It's 20% OFF all purchases for one day only (and may be a few eyewear surprises thrown in for good measure). Oh! And don't forget to bring your Independent Birmingham card: discounted entry and a swathe of discounts in the market itself - what's not to like? Can't wait to meet you there! Janan
