You know when you’re doing something right when approximately 15% of your customer base are buying non-prescription optical glasses! That’s a lot of people wearing glasses for the style and not for the necessity! The Bailey Nelson pop up shop has been open approximately 6 months and what a welcome addition to the Canberra optometry scene they are! Located on the ground floor of the Canberra Centre (opposite G-Star), I was one of their first customers last year purchasing my very first pair of prescription sunglasses and now I return again this year to pick out a few more pairs.
To further add to the affordability, Bailey Nelson also accept private health insurance and depending on your level of cover, your glasses may even be fully covered.
2. The designs are on point! A huge range of on trend glasses from the straighty-one-eighty to the adorkable, hipster clip on shades, and on-trend transparent frames… the range is enormous and designed with fashion at any age in mind, new styles arrive in store monthly.
I trialled a range of glasses from their current range:
5. Wells in Cherry Blossom ($125) + Wells clip-on shades ($70)
FYI, I wanted something a bit fashion orientated for sunnies but low key and professional in my optical. I ended up picking the Bronte sunnies (pictured below) and the Homer optical (number 1).
