A quick post to let Seacoast locals know that Eyelook Optical in Portsmouth, NH now sells eyeglass frames on consignment.
I am so happy to help spread the word about another option for recycling goods on the Seacoast. If you are an existing customer of Eye Look Optical you may bring in your gently worn frames/sunglasses for consignment. They will professionally clean the frames, remove the lenses, and determine a sale price. After six months, if your frames do not sell, you are given the option to either reduce the sale price, take them back, or donate them to the Lions Club.
As is noted above, you can get store credit or cash if your frames are sold. Eyelook Optical donates their share of the sale to support ALS research.
The shop owner told me that sales of the used frames has been good. I’m not surprised. It’s a great way to save money and get a quality pair of glasses. I brought in 5 of my old frames today. Four of my frames are shown above. To learn more about Eyelook Optical visit their Facebook page.
