Pop-Up Show Rooms At Artisan Optics Uptown Boise

Each frame line has a unique voice; from timeless to trend-setting, bold to under-stated refinement, you will find a line that fits your personal style and personality. Many people find that they gravitate towards one or two frame lines, much like you enjoy a particular artist, musician or clothing designer. For this reason, Artisan Optics hosts trunk shows one Friday each month from 10am to 5pm.

A trunk show is a special event, open to the public, to display or showcase an entire eyewear collection. Styles for the upcoming season are unveiled and product is available for purchase before becoming available to the public. This is an opportunity to see an entire eyewear collection, compare various styles, shapes, and colors, and find the perfect pair of glasses.

The Eyewear Trunk Show runs from 10:00am to 5:00pm. Feel free to stop in and shop any time during the show. If you need a little help finding the perfect pair of glasses, schedule a complementary personal styling appointment – time set aside with one of our opticians to find eyewear that complements your features and fits your personal style.

No need to miss out on a trunk show just because you don’t have a current eyeglass prescription. You can have an exam with one of our doctors. Or, if you already have a prescription from your eye doctor, just bring it along with you. Don’t have a copy? No worries. Just let us know and we will request a copy from your eye doctor’s office for you.

During the trunk shows our frame lines present merchandise to us, Artisan Optics, as well as our customers. During the trunk show we place stock orders for our store inventories and also invite our clients to view the merchandise and place personal orders.

A trunk show is the ultimate personal shopping experience – with complimentary eyewear makeovers and suggestions on updated shapes and colors. A representative from the eyewear company is in-store to share the company’s story – the history behind the design concepts, how the frames are constructed, and to share their vision of accessorizing with eyewear.

If you’ve not attended one of our trunk shows, now’s the time. Bring along friends and family. Everyone will have fun exploring new shapes and colors – discovering that eyewear doesn’t have to be “boring” or “all the same”. Eyewear is a lot like makeup or that perfect outfit. Eyewear should enhance your natural attributes and project your desired image. Whether that image is to look more professional, younger, more mature, or free-spirited…the list is endless really. With so many styles, shapes, colors and textures to choose from – we have that perfect pair of glasses that you’re searching for. What are you waiting for? Mark your calendar and plan to attend our next trunk show.
