Does anyone know where I can get one of those strings/beads you put on your eyeglasses so you can put them around your neck? They have these loops at the end through which the "ears" of your eyeglasses go.
At our local hospital, they're free at the opthalmology department.
You could probably find it cheaply at an eyeglasses store like LensCrafters
i have seen them in the sunglasses section at Wally World.
If the sunglasses, reading glasses or sporting goods area of Wal-Mart doesn't have them, the optometrist dept. might. My sunglasses (from fishing section at Wal-Mart) came with them.
I've even got them at dollar stores.
I've seen REALLY fancy ones at specialty craft stores for $35 - $50, made with beautiful glass beads, etc...
I've taken the ones from the dollar store, cut the cord off so I have just the rubber part that slips on the glasses, and made my own 'fancy' cord with my own beads!
They sell them at dollar stores, Wal-Mart has them in the first-aid area, I think Target carries them as well near the pharmacy.
Sears Optical sells them.
I must have mis-read your question, or else am the only one that understood it...you are looking for the loops that go ON the end of the beads or strings...JUST the loops...is that correct. I have never seen those, but then never really looked for them. I assume you want to make your own holders?
Please email me at sewer44Bonnie @ go.com (remove spaces) if I am correct.
Also, the CVS near me has them with the reading glasses by the pharmacy. Sporting goods stores have them, but they'll be more expensive. They used to call them croakies (SP??)
