Why You Should Replace Your Lenses
What do you do when your lenses get scratched or crack? Do you buy a whole new pair of sunglasses?
Fuse Lenses is so excited to announce the launch of our all-new Lido Sunglasses. Lido Key is an island located off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Our Lido Sunglasses were inspired by the island’s beautiful sunsets and outdoorsy lifestyle. These frames are lightweight, customizable, and more durable than ever with a triple barrel hinge that keeps your sunglasses firm and locked in for longer. In honor of this launch, we thought we’d tell you a little bit more about the island these shades are inspired by.
The history of the island can be traced back to the early 1900s when Thomas Martin Worcester arrived, now known as the island’s first property developer. Worcester spent his time constructing a palace on Lido Key which garnered tons of media attention and alerted the public of the island, which was otherwise a hidden spot until then. The palace was built for Worcester’s wife and described it as “labor of love”. After three years of construction, the palace was opened with a formal reception which gained a lot of media attention. This opened the island up to attract many more visitors, developers and businessmen.
After a while, the island came into possession of John Ringling, the famous circus entrepreneur who combined Barnum and Bailey’s circus with his own Ringling Bros World’s Greatest Show. While this story cannot be confirmed, it is rumored that Ringling won the island with a series of other islands in a poker match. Regardless of how the island came into his possession, Ringling took development of the island seriously and had big plans to renovate.
Ringling began rolling out plans for new buildings, businesses, landscaping and art installations. While many of his developments did not stand the test of time, Ringling’s influence and overall vision is still felt on the island today.
St. Armand’s Circle, adjacent to Lido Key, was also owned and developed by Ringling. Through his development, it is now one of the most popular destinations on the island. Present-day developers have paid tribute to Ringling through continuing his 1920s renovation visions and naming streets after him. The circle is surrounded by 33 statues, with a third of them said to be from Ringling’s personal collection. In 2007, the Save Our Statues project launched as an effort to beautify Sarasota and was inspired by Ringling’s legacy.
Today Lido Key still remains popular and attracts many tourists and developers to the area. It is the home to one of the most well-kept beaches in Florida and is a home for sunset cruises, eco-tourism, marine life watching, sailing, and deep sea fishing. The main attractions include shopping and the beaches.
Overall, Lido Key has a rich and eccentric history. Throughout the past decade, they have developed into one of the top spots in Florida, thanks to the help of John Ringling. Their beautiful beaches and outdoorsy lifestyle is what drew us to name our newest sunglasses after this wonderful island. Become a part of the history of Lido Key and shop our all-new Lido Sunglasses.
