Buy some new sunglasses at pop up store Ace & Tate in Amsterdam!
Our favourite eyewear brand in Amsterdam has opened a pop-up store! Ace & Tate
is to be found at the Van Woustraat in the always charming De Pijp since the beginning of May. Although you can also order the glasses online, I sometimes find it difficult to decided which frame suits best. So I’m very happy that there is a shop now where you can look at the frames and also try them on!
Trying glasses from Ace and Tate is always possible with the home try-on service. But for now, you can also go to De Pijp for a new pair of eyewear! Now it’s almost summer, it’s time to expand my sunglasses collection. We went to the new pop-up at the Van Woustraat and already picked our new styles for this summer. Anne and I are going to Boston next week so we can use some sunnies for in the park :-).
PS: Did you already know that Ace & Tate opened a second location in the Nine Streets? On Huidenstraat 20. Go, go, go!
