The Warby Parker Spectacle Bazaar (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Those looking for an offbeat alternative to New York’s annual holiday markets will appreciate this quirky seasonal store, run by vintage-inspired eyewear brand Warby Parker. The 4,000-square-foot showroom houses two cream-colored yurts: one solely dedicated to Warby Parker’s frames ($95) and on-the-spot eye exams ($50), and another that hosts a weekly-rotating roster of vendors (contemporary furniture designer Fort Standard) and interactive events (literary readings from writers signed to McSweeney’s). Depending on the day, you can pick up Papabubble oversized candy canes ($8) and lollipops ($7–$15), Yestadt Millinery hats ($120–$400) and Best Made Co. cozy blankets ($350). No matter when you drop by, you’ll always be able to nab Warby Parker men’s square-shaped sunglasses or women’s oversize shades with polarized lenses ($95 each).
