Vintage Glasses Part 2


I headed over to the lovely, little town of Lititz today to check out Leese I Wear's selection of vintage glasses. I was pleasantly surprised at the variety of eye glasses both new and old in the shop. Kimberly the owner had a small collection of very nice, new old stock vintage frames that she enjoys collecting. I have always found it hard to find a pair of decent vintage glasses. I absolutely refuse to buy vintage frames on Ebay as I never know how they will look on me and I would hate to spend a bunch of money only to be disappointed. I really need to try things on to see how they look before I buy! After trying on about all the vintage frames she had, I settled on a cute pair of cat's eye glasses that she's sending off to have the perscription lenses put in for me! I'll be picking them up in a week.

While I was there, I also fell in love with a pair of vintage sunglasses that looked fab on me. To my surprise Kimberly gave them to me for free! She was given them for free to sell in her shop but because they're not in mint condition she wasn't planning on selling them. Since she wasn't going to sell them and I liked them so much....she gave them to me! How cool is that! *jump up and down, jump up and down* She also gave me a cool vintage case to keep them in!




But that's not all! I also bought a cute 50's eyeglass case for my soon to be new old glasses and a matching mirror compact for the excellent price of 10 bucks! I am just so glamorous right now... don't be jealous!
