SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION
In 1975, fashion maven and business-woman, Rosemary Grow and
ex-husband-turned-friend, ventured into the new frontier of eyeglasses
as a fashion accessory–long before it was popular.
In 2006, their daughter Penna, a graphic designer, moved from LA
to take over ownership of the Marin County store after her mother’s
sudden passing. Armed with their love for each other, the store and the
community, Penna and the Rims & Goggles/Marin staff with 154 years
combined experience, aligned to seamlessly carry on Rosemary’s legacy
of love. As a result, R&G now serves the children and grandchildren of the
original customers from the 70’s.
“My Mom had an amazing eye for design & craftsmanship and could see
where fashion was headed well before anyone else… Luckily, that trait
is hereditary…” laughs Penna. Their new line, GRO, (named in honor of
Rosemary) features exciting materials, colors and shapes and is designed
by the R&G team and handmade in Italy. All their eyewear lines are
crafted by exclusive eyewear designers. Nothing mass-produced, no
licensed brands, no logos. TRULY INDEPENDEN T.
