Union Made Easter Candy

Some of you may be in the mood to buy candy this weekend, and as always you can do something good for people and the planet by purchasing products made with union labor. Unions provide many benefits to workers including: higher pay, retirement benefits, health care, collective bargaining representation, and much more. In general, union workers live happier and healthier lives, which makes my jelly beans taste even better.

Both our classic and our sparkly frames compliment most face shapes, and come in two widths. Small is designed to fit 3- to 5-year-olds, while large will fit most 5- to 7-year-olds. Our frames also come in three temple arm lengths. The temple arm length is the measurement, in millimeters, from the front of the frame to the tip of the temple along the length of the entire temple arm. You want the the temple arm to be long enough so the glasses don't perch at an angle above the ear. Most young children wear a temple length of 125. Each order includes a copy of our book "Princesses Wear Glasses." Once you receive the frames, take them to your optical provider, who will make sure they fit properly and add your child's prescription lenses.
