My Story

Hey, howdy! Thanks for stopping by. I'm Brooke, the One Woman behind this one-woman show. My business journey began in 2013 when I started selling my flower crowns and macrame bracelets in the parking lots at Phish shows--I just wanted enough money to get to the next show. Everyone loved the Fishman bracelets, so I started an Etsy shop so that I could sell them even when Phish wasn't touring. I had a pretty solid side hustle going!

It wasn't until 2015 that I would start making the sunglasses and name my business Baba Cool. I was loving the embellished sunglasses trend and wanted a way to bring it to the Phish and jam band scene. So I embellished a couple pairs of sunglasses, and I added Phish lyrics. Duh!! No one else was doing it at the time. Turns out it was a damn good idea and people really loved them. I had created something special.

I didn't set out to become a sunglasses brand, but it's been such a fun and unexpected journey. Listening to music and song lyrics has always been an extremely cathartic and therapeutic experience for me, and the sunglasses are a way for me to take that passive experience (listening) and transform it into a more active one (interpreting, creating, & sharing). I love to create designs that can resonate with anyone, regardless of their taste in music.

Baba Cool has been my full time job since 2018. I am so incredibly grateful for this community we have and for all of the support you've given me. THANK YOU. I truly couldn't have done any of this without you! See you on Shakedown!

Frequently asked questions

Do you still make sunglasses?!

Yes!! I opened my own website in 2020 which is why my shop here on Etsy is empty. Check out for the full selection and follow @shopbabacool on IG to see everything I'm creating!

Do you take custom orders?

I open custom orders a couple of times a year. Custom order availability is extremely limited due to the volume of requests I receive. Please visit the "Custom Orders" page of my website ( for FULL custom order instructions and to check the status of custom orders.

My glasses broke! Can they be fixed?

A lot of times, yes! Send Brooke an e-mail at describing what broke and include pictures if possible. I am happy to help and I will go out of my way to keep your sunglasses out of the landfill.

Care instructions

Please treat your sunglasses like the delicate works of art that they are. Store in a pouch when they're not on your face and *please* handle with care! Clean the lenses gently with a microfiber cloth & lens cleaner. I do my very best to make a quality product, and when cared for properly you can enjoy these glasses for years. Thanks!!
