“There is literally no other place one should go to buy quality, rare, unique, contemporary and/or authentic vintage frames than Fanny’s. I went here on a fluke—been searching high and low, online and brick and mortar, for about 2 years for a pair of glasses I actually love for an affordable price. I’ve gone to the small New York boutiques, I’ve gone to the larger retailers like LensCrafters, and everything in between and have come up with nothing but a headache, heartbreak and $1000s of dollars wasted. I was starting to give up until I went to Fanny’s after reading the reviews. I got 3 pairs of glasses for less than the price of one at these other places and I never leave unhappy. Fanny’s is simply the best in NYC, I’ll never go anywhere else for my glasses needs and neither should you!!” Ebony D, NY, NY
"I never write reviews, but this place deserves all of my online love and gratitude, and you (who are considering shopping here, but wanted to read a few reviews first) will be glad you went to Fabulous Fanny's!
By far the best optical in the world! Well, the best in my world. They have an amazing and eclectic frame selection. Definitely something for everyone! Fabulous Fanny's offered the largest selection of true vintage frames, in very good condition. They also have their own line of eyeglasses, Spectaculars, which are (as the name implies) absolutely spectacular!
The frame selection and diversity is next to NONE! They have wooden, round, octagonal, 1920's, 1960's, cat eye, colorful, black and white, rhinestone (not for me though), anything you can think of! They had a pair of glasses shaped like a bicycle! Like, what?! They also have very trendy, more toned down frames if you're looking for something a little more bread and butter, but still Fabulous.
Most importantly, the service was epic! (I keep wanting to say Fabulous, but they already know they're fabulous!) The opticians on staff weren't just trying to sell me something, they wanted to help me look amazing, and I could really feel that. They said "no" to frames that didn't look that great on me, which I was thankful for because it's easy to get carried away in there since they have such an incredible selection. They were very helpful, courteous and tolerant! I must have made them look at over 50 frames on me, but they never acted like they were tired of helping me (even if they were), which was great!
What's the best thing about Fabulous Fanny's service? I took the frame I bought to my eye doctor, and I live out of state. They tried to put the lenses in, and they broke the frame! I was CRUSHED! I emailed Fabulous Fanny's with high hopes, but low expectations. We hadn't discussed any warranty, or return policy or anything when I had originally bought the frame, so I wasn't going to hold it against them if they said "too bad." Not only was it not "too bad," but after I emailed them, i got a response that they were going to mail me a whole new frame! (I was fortunate enough to have bought a newer frame, so they had more than one and could replace it) I'm so grateful to Ken at Fabulous Fanny's, I don't even know what to do, except write this review!.. and shop there every time I visit New York City!"
