Buy Eyeglasses Online: Vision & Fashion the Frugal Way

A month ago, CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) published a piece of news about purchasing eyeglasses online; a month later, this news has already been commented on by thousands of people. With the rise of purchasing eyeglasses online, more and more eyeglass wearers have begun to focus their attention on it. However, with regard to buying eyewear online, some support it while others still have doubts about it. What has turned numerous eyeglass wearers from traditional brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores to online ones? Firmoo’s slogan tells you everything: Vision and Fashion the Frugal Way.

Most eyeglasses wearers have purchased eyeglasses at traditional eyeglass stores. Nevertheless, due to the limited styles and unaffordable prices, consumers have had to regard eyeglasses as a medical tool used to correct vision instead of a fashion accessory. But now, with the emergence of online eyeglass shopping, we can get fashionable eyeglasses at reasonable prices. Among the many online eyeglass stores, Firmoo, which combines fashion and economy, is undoubtedly the most outstanding one.

As we all know, we usually have to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of glasses at brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores. Yet, you can get the same pair of glasses from online eyeglass stores at a fraction of the price. For this reason, buying glasses online is, so to speak, quite an economical way to get eyeglasses. Among the numerous online optical stores, Firmoo is the most economic one. Customers can usually get their beloved glasses at a price that is up to 90% lower than that in brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores. Furthermore, new customers can even get their first pair for FREE there. Some people may doubt the quality, safety, durability, etc. of eyeglasses purchased online, but there is no need to worry when purchasing from Firmoo. Firstly, all glasses provided by Firmoo are carefully manufactured by skilled workers and are strictly inspected by professional opticians before shipment, thus ensuring the quality and safety of glasses; secondly, Firmoo has developed a try-on tool for customers to try their beloved eyeglasses on so as to see how they look on them; thirdly, Firmoo has a customer service team that has always been committed to offering their valued customers the best service; lastly, all glasses available at Firmoo are provided by their affiliated factory, which is why they can offer eyeglasses at such a low price.

“We have dozens of affiliated eyeglasses factories which enable us to provide our customers with the most affordable eyeglasses around because there are no middlemen in between. Meanwhile, we have devoted ourselves to providing our valued customers with fashionable and aesthetic eyeglasses,” said Patrick Li, Firmoo’s CEO.

Compared with purchasing eyeglasses at brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores, purchasing eyeglasses online is not only more economical but also enables customers to select from more fashion elements. This is due to Firmoo meticulously picking several hundred classic styles from thousands of eyeglass models.

Firmoo CEO Patrick Li also added, “Our team has selected hundreds of classical and fashionable styles in order to save time for our customers when they are picking eyeglasses.”

So what do online eyeglass stores bring to us? We believe the answer is fashion and frugality.

Scrapbooking and Photobooks

I have been addicted to scrap booking online since I found it as a nice hobby plus there are sites who offered free shipping and fifty percent less. Once you started it, it is going to be addictive especially if you have  many photos to print and that’s what happened to me because I have a lot of photos stored in my folders since we always travel twice a year. So when I have free time I design a travel   photobook  and then order it when there’s a good deal like when they dropped the prices to 30-50% less with free shipping.  It is really a nice deal because where can you find a twenty pages 5×7 photobook  for $3.99 with free shipping? It is so seldom to find these kind of deals so when opportunity knocks grab it.

Creating photobooks is also a nice hobby for mommies for tracking their babies growth and printing those photos where they have sweet moments, it is also a good gift for love ones, it can also be used as giveaways for parties and can be used as booklet for your special recipes. That’s just few of the many uses of making your own photobook, as of now I am planning to create a new one since I found another great deal online.

Impulsive Shopping at Daiso

The impulsive shopper on me  strikes again when I went to Daiso the other day, shopping in Daiso is not even on my plan I just can’t resist going inside the shop every time I happened to passed by. The plan to look around and spend  ₩5,000 didn’t materialized I spend 7x of it.  As usual I just buy some useless things if you will asked my husband, I got 2 notebooks despite the fact that I have plenty of notebooks already, scissors I also have one, calculator I just find it cute ok?  Paper clip, dunno where could I used it when I have no paper to clip, alarm clock when we already have one, travel pack shampoo and bath soap, small Nivea lotion I just found it cute as well, batteries for my alarm clock, hand wash it is cute too, handkerchief  violet is not yet on my collection, plastic zipper bag just like it.

When my husband saw my shopping haul there’s only one thing he can asked when are you going to mail your box? Yeah right it is been sitting in our apartment for few months already together with the postcards I have to send, I can’t save for postal fee because  the moment I have a small savings before I know it I spend it already.

Melbourne shopping streets

Melbourne is often regarded as Sydney’s smaller but hipper cousin. However, with a population of some four million people it is still big enough to support a vast array of different retailers, making it a perfect destination for shoppers of all kinds, from those looking for designer labels to those who prefer big brands, as well as shoppers looking for the quirkier purchase with which to flex their credit card.

In the centre of the city are two famous thoroughfares for shopping: Collins Street and Bourke Street. Tree-lined Collins Street is ideal for those with expensive tastes. All the famous designer labels have premises here, while high-end jewellers and shoe designers also favour the street – just don’t forget your credit card! Collins Street is also home to several arcades. These artdeco covered emporiums are home to decadent confectioners and luxurious home wares.

Bourke Street, just two blocks north of Collins Street is has a very different feel. Famous high street chains form the majority of shops here, alongside mobile phone retailers and department stores. All accept payment by cash and credit card; both of which you can also use to pay for your tram ticket, so you can travel on to your next shopping destination.
Over the river is the Southbank, home to the Southgate shopping centre which features three levels of shopping housing over 80 retailers.

Slightly further afield lies Chapel Street, home to the famous bazaar. Here, shoppers can find all sorts of vintage items, from furniture and clothes to retro magazines and toys. Be advised that credit cards may not be accepted as payment for small items.

Back in the city and those looking for the cutting edge of Melbourne fashion should head to Flinders Street. Once the hub of the city’s famous rag trade, Flinders Street is now populated by independent fashion boutiques selling original clothing and accessories that can range from the eccentric to the sublime. If you are looking to put a one-off creation on your credit card, Flinders Street is probably the place for you.

Swanston Street, running north and south through the centre of the city, has a host of shopping options, from multi-storey retail centres full of fashion emporiums to converted traditional buildings from which one can purchase records, books, furniture and zines.
Take the train to the suburb of Northcote and your credit card will see a lot of action as you explore the retailers lining what is one of Melbourne’s oldest shopping precincts. Lots of independent designer clothing stores rub shoulders with local art galleries, retro furniture shops and baby stores.
