My fascination with specs......
Began when I was younger I was the only one that wore glasses! .... I sought out the the more original styles, and loved the fact that it took a certain person to wear glasses with confidence................
Gradually wearing specs became 'trendy' and now you only have to pop into the local supermarket and everyone will be wearing
their 'designer' frames. Even my nan!!
That made me determined to find a frame that was different from the rest. By chance I went to a boot sale and saw a guy wearing the most beautiful tortoiseshell framed glasses.
I approached him and I discovered he had handmade the frames himself !! He told me that he had other styles that I might like.
He originally had a shop in Covent Garden and had just sold up and was moving abroad. We exchanged email addresses and he was able to email me pics of his stock amongst which were 'Deadstock' from the late 1950s.. and to cut a long story short...so began my love affair with vintage frames....I now source from all over the world, unusual designs to suit all tastes. I have them lovingly re-glazed with the highest quality UV lens and provide a bespoke prescription service. I love them and know you will too!!
*Deadstock: brand new and unworn discontinued stock.
