When grandfather passed away i got a tiny cardboard box from my uncle with random scraps of paper, a little Italian tape measure and this neat pair of vintage sunglasses which were made in China. The detail on the bridge and the style remind me of knock-off Ray Bans from the 1950s. And I suppose they aren’t all that vintage or rare, but they are still a score.
My grandfather rarely wore regular sunglasses because he had these turtle shell prescription glasses, so the mystery remains why he even owned these. But there is something about them that I like. I will wear them one day if I ever get contact lenses. For now they just sit on the shelf.
If you have any great scores that were passed on to you from family or a relative, send us a picture and the story behind it, we’d love to hear.
Best of luck this weekend if you’re out there vintage hunting!
