Excellence in Business Awards

Thank you for your support!

Tomorrow night the winners of the Newmarket Business Association's Excellence in Business Awards will be announced at the Auckland War Memorial Museum. We are thrilled to be amongst the finalists in three categories, in large part thanks to you who support us and have voted for us. So we want to say a huge thank you!
We are finalists in 3 award categories:
  • Retailer of the Year Award
  • Best Customer Experience Award
  • People's Choice Award
We are up against some stiff competition; Newmarket has established beloved businesses over the years as well as seeing some amazing new boutiques pop open this past year, but whatever the outcome we will enjoy the evening tomorrow and hope to see Michael step onto the stage. Fingers crossed!

Glasses of the Week: Calm before the storm

Todd Hunter of Turners Cars looks dashing in his new Claire Goldsmith glasses. This new model from the London designer is such a great fit for Todd's features and personality, and the matte storm finish offers a softer alternative to more conventional neutrals.

Put That Record On...

Is anyone else nostalgic for the good old days of vinyl and the golden age of CDs, 
when unfolding the album art and reading all the lyrics was the best part of putting a new record on?

Here's a selection of eyewear-centric album covers to enjoy.
Turn the volume up on your music this weekend!

Surf, Sand, Sunglasses

We love this image of the iconic Oliver Goldsmith sunglass frame 'Norum (1958)', shot for Eyewear Magazine. You may remember this design recently won Best Frame of the Year at the British Opticians Awards.

Glasses of the Week: Lady in Red

Sonia Shah is a vision in her new Oliver Goldsmiths!
This vintage design originated in 1968 and is as striking today as it was then. The matte crystal finish lends a modern edge with the beautiful sunset tinted lenses. They are stunning with her red wool coat and our Michael Holmes logo ;)
