Big News... A Letter from Paula

Saturday, July 30th, 2022


Dear Friends of Eye Candy,

I opened Eye Candy with visions of beautiful and unique eyewear, and I’ve watched it grow to surpass my wildest aspirations. This amazing boutique has been a dream come true. But the time has come for me to move on to a new chapter in my life, and after MUCH thought, I have decided to retire.  My husband Tracy and I, along with our four cats, are moving to Florida to enjoy fun, sun, beaches and relaxation.

However, Eye Candy is here to stay! Melissa, Robin, Andrea, Cindy and Brandon have done an excellent job of helping to make Eye Candy what it is today. You will continue to get the best in fabulous, quality eyewear and awesome customer service from this team of knowledgeable Certified Opticians. They are deeply committed to carrying on the legacy I’ve built.

While my retirement is effective June 29, 2022, I’ve dedicated time in August to my “goodbye tour.”

Monday, August 8 – Friday, August 12

I leave with 15 years’ worth of cherished memories of our trunk shows, downtown Delafield events, crazy sale days and Popcorn Saturdays. And, most of all, so many wonderful customers– many of whom became not only ‘regulars’, but also friends.  I will miss you all and my Eye Candy family!

With gratitude,

Paula Hornbeck, Owner
