The best New Year offers
Let’s face it, specs are cool, even if you don’t need them to see. CrossEyes, just round the corner from the Roundhouse in Camden, offers up affordable Danish-designed specs for the masses. With at least ten collections a year, which they design themselves, there’s something for everyone: meaning glasses that fit your face and your vibe. A key draw would be that the prices are fixed, so there are no nasty surprises when it comes to ordering. There are also trained optometrists in store to undertake sight tests or dish out optical advice.
