I bought a pair of sunglasses online from Shadestation. BEWARE of buying from this shop - if there is anything wrong with the product they will be unhelpful and useless. I ordered a pair of sunglasses in June from them and because they cost so much I was meant to receive free next day delivery. As they were prescription sunglasses, I was told that the lenses would take one week to make. THREE weeks later I finally received the sunglasses, after several phone calls to the store.
When I opened the package the sunglasses had been completely bent out of shape - they were completely unwearable.

I wrote a lengthy email fully explaining the extent of the ignorance of the staff at Shade station and why I was very unhappy with the service.
