vintage and antique eyewear

OUR STORY

At night, when the rest of the world soundly sleeps, we grab our flashlights and hit warehouses and flea markets.  We jostle in secret underground auctions and scour the deepest recesses of the web. The mission? To find the highest quality vintage and antique eyewear that the world has ever seen.

After we have procured our precious cargo, we sprint them back to our secret cellar where they are inspected for quality, professionally cleaned and polished to give them that final touch. All of our vintage eyeglass frames are ready for your prescription or sunglass lenses and are fit for daily wear. 

From 1850s through the 1980s, we stock authentic vintage eyewear that were lovingly handcrafted, not produced – giving each pair that character, history and quality you only find in days of old.

We take particular pride in serving as the Robin Hood of eyewear, carefully preserving the spectacles of yesteryear and making them easily accessible to anyone wishing for a glimpse of the past.

We’re not going say that if John Lennon hadn’t worn his quintessential Windsor frames the Beatles might not have taken off. But anything is possible.

So happy browsing and please let us know if there is anyway we can help by shooting an email, or carrier pigeon, over to vintageopticalshop@gmail.com
