G is for Glasses + 26 Projects

Here at 26 Projects, we love to talk about the great people we get to work with!

Local optical shop G is for Glasses offers not only comprehensive eye exams for adults and kids, ocular emergencies, visual field testing, and contact lens fittings, but the dedicated team at 3-1176 Taylor Avenue also knows how to have a good time! Aside from classic vinyl dance parties and frame styling sessions with Bonni O’Hara, the cool colourful space is decked out with everything from your favourite books to movie posters and vintage toys.

And did someone say selection?

G is for Glasses has an incredible variety of frames for your face, all of which Bonni will help you try, and all of which Ken Bond is a gosh darn expert on. It’s not just an eye exam from Dr. Jessie Fillmore and her talented team – it’s an eye opening experience.

On September 8 and 9, G is for Glasses transforms into an Andy Wolf Pop Up Shop with a party on the Thursday from 6-9pm! You don’t want to miss your chance to win a free pair of Andy Wolf specs, do you? Apparently all you have to do is dress up as your favourite wrestling persona to qualify…
