In this day of cheap everything including service, theres Shimp Optical that actually has the expertise to fix things, rather than give you a new pair like the ones that just broke. I have a vintage pair of frames i will likely never give up willingly and no one could fix them, til i found Shimp Optical. These people are steady as surgeons and actually welded a fine golden temple piece that no one would attempt...No problem! Really nice, normal people, so if you are choking down a triple expresso on the run between clients-then this is no place for you. It's far too laid back, and because i am on the run always, its nice to be around normals for a while...even while they dazzle me with their workmanship.
Truly, these guys are among the few artisans that you ever find. I went to 5 places before i landed these people, by their reputation. Anyone with a different opinion needs to cut back on the expresso, take a deep breath and enjoy being around some really nice people who are worth a lot more than they are paid. I will definitely be back!
