Usually, pop-up shops are fleeting, popping up for a weekend or so. But Warby Parker is giving Washingtonians plenty of time to pick up a new pair of glasses. The NYC-based affordable hipster eyewear brand is ending their Class Trip road show by parking a decked-out yellow school bus at various locations in Washington from October 24 till December 22.
The bus generally stays in a city for a few weeks, but since this is the last Class Trip of 2013 Warby Parker wanted to go out with a bang, a rep said. In 2012, the bus stayed in Washington for a month. Want to check it out? Head to Wisconsin Avenue and M Street NW in Georgetown tomorrow to find Warby Parker's latest wares, with glasses starting at $95. And the brand gives a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair they sell, in case you want to feel better about taking home a couple pairs. A few more photos of the fancy school bus can be found after the jump.
