FETCH by Ann Sacks

Ann Sacks founded Fetch Eyewear (originally Amy Sacks Eyewear) in 2004 shortly after retiring from the company that she built from the ground up, Ann Sacks Tile and Stone. 

With a keen eye for design, years of business and sourcing experience, and a life long passion for animal rescue, Ann was able to put her skills to use to provide affordable stylish frames to her customers and an ongoing funding source for local animal rescue, the Pixie Project. 

The defacto head of the quality control department, each Fetch frame must survive her tough love approach to glasses.

Fetch frames are designed for good looks and longevity. Made of hand-finished cellulose acetate and stainless steel components, each pair is backed by an unconditional lifetime warranty. The collection includes a variety of styles in a wide array of colors so you’re sure to find the perfect pair.

Dempsey & Carroll

The love of elegance and exquisite finish in stationery is no new love, but elegance and finish are not in themselves artistic, they are simply the last result of mere mechanical execution. We take especial pleasure, therefore, in calling attention to the work of Messrs. Dempsey & Carroll, who have earned for themselves the honourable designation of “Art Stationers.”
-The Home Journal (Town & Country), 1879

 Dempsey & Carroll.

 Happy Thanksgiving!  We are grateful for YOU!

alicia adams alpaca!

Oh my goodness!  We've been busy -- busy bringing in lots of new product, and busy gearing up for colder weather.

Thankfully we have *gorgeous* new 
Alicia Adams throws to keep us cozy and warm!


Alicia and her family moved to New York in 2006 from Germany where they started raising and breeding Suri alpacas – one of the world’s rarest breeds. While her husband built the breeding business, turning it into one of the leading Suri breeding programs in the United States, Alicia embarked on creating Alicia Adams Alpaca in 2009. Raised and educated in Mexico, Europe and the United States, and with a background in fashion PR, Alicia adds an urban edge to her classic designs.

The alpacas at the farm are shorn yearly and their fiber processed into yarns for home wares and accessories as well as clothing for adults and children. All Alicia Adams Alpaca products are manufactured in the United States and in Peru utilizing the incredible handiwork of local artisans who continue the pre-Incan tradition of working alpaca fibers. In an effort to give back to them, Alicia Adams Alpaca actively supports artisan families and their communities.

Through a Scent...Seville

The orange tree is central to this fragrance. It opens with spicy, green and zesty notes. It then gives way to the passion of the heart notes... Enhanced by a jasmine accord and beeswax, the orange flower absolute reveals its opulence and stunning sensuality. Finally, base notes unveil a certain darkness, imparted by lavender from Seville and frankincense, giving a spiritual intensity to the entire perfume.

Petigrain, orange blossom, jasmine, incense
What is Petigrain?  It is an essential oil extracted from the twigs of the bitter orange plant.  Petigrain oil gains its name from the fact that it used to be extracted from the small unripe oranges of the plant.  This oil is widely used in perfumes and colognes due to its distinct woody, orange fragrances.



Séville à l'Aube is now available through
