This hobby has cajoled in me a fantastic hunger for antique shopping, and every month I look forward to the Sacramento Antique Faire. March produced two pair of mid-century prescription eye glasses, one for sun and one not. We have yet to photograph the sun shades, however I wear them when I drive and they’re brilliant! We found these frames in fair condition and of course with the wrong prescription. Five years running Shane has begged that I have my eyes checked. I finally made an appointment with Dr. John Rosten of Dixon Eyecare Associates. This was the right place! Laura Leach-Moore, the business manager and optician, is a vintage frames enthusiast and displays her lovely collection in the waiting room. She was pleased to assist and adjust, then painstakingly clean the frames to beauty. Marvelous experience and I couldn’t recommend a better place to entrust your vintage frames. Don’t have any? Etsy, eBay and other vintage stocked websites offer countless varieties of dreams. Nothing matches trying on in-person, but finding a style you love can be painstaking. We truly did luck out finding these frames. I suppose that’s half the fun of thrift and antique shopping, finding treasures one trip at a time. Faster pace one click at a time on the internet can be amazingly fruitful, but I am wondering to what satisfaction? Slow down and enjoy the ride is a reasonable mantra.
