This week may bring Michael Kors and Bebe, and next week could feature Ann Taylor and Seven, but no matter when someone stops in Eye of the Beholder Consignments, items from high-profile brands can be found on the shelves. Handbags may carry names such as Prada, Coach, and Juicy Couture, and clothing may hail from Talbots, Chico's, and Coldwater Creek. The shop also stocks shoes, business suits, and maternity wear for expectant mothers and dudes who just want to get closer to their children by dressing as a nanny. A portion of proceeds goes to charities such as the Baltimore Humane Society and the American Cancer Society.
As a child, Rocky Thorpe would go on adventures on his own that would often lead him to museums where he’d spend the day photographing exhibits. As he grew up, he discovered that this habit of documenting his own life and capturing the world’s beauty around him was not just a hobby, but a passion. Today, with Eclectic Fotos, he makes photography his life, shooting everything from weddings and modeling sessions to portraits of families, children, and moms-to-be. Boudoir sessions and private events, such as birthday parties and corporate functions, are also within his scope of skills. To enhance photo packages, he offers such extras as hand-bound albums as well as DVD slide shows.
With more than 386 locations dotting North America, JCPenney Optical's ubiquity is matched only by its extensive selection of contact lenses and designer frames that includes brands such as Armani Exchange, Liz Claiborne, and Nicole Miller. Despite this wide reach, all lenses are cut at the same optical laboratory, ensuring a consistency of quality and a pretty good idea of where to look if your glasses run away from home. Each location has an independent state-licensed doctor of optometry, who can perform vision exams and help clients determine which type of vision correction will work best.
