Hidden Gem - review by mofree

I found Robert Roope Opticians by coincident browsing the web for vintage glasses. I was delighted to find that the specialist supplier of Retrospecs was located almost on my doorstep. So I booked an appointment to try on the glasses of my choice…what can I say?? I was overwhelmed by the choice of funky retro/vintage/modern glasses on offer. Very unlike any other optician I have ever been to before. I received some much needed style advice which helped me make final decision. The result….I found a pair of glasses that I never hoped could exist and that suit me to a T. I am so glad I found Roope Vintage and would recommend for anyone in search for something a little different. [Nov 11]
