Estate sale find: I found a cache of new old stock eyewear at the estate sale of a retired optometrist, and among the hundreds of boxed sample trays filled with 1950s through early 1990s frames were these gems. They have NO prescription. The frame is a soft pink acetate with shades of salmon and cantaloupe, and the construction quality is very high end. The Eye Company is a London based optometry shop that makes their own bespoke eyewear, and I believe these were made by them (the inside arm reads: The Eye Company Design.") They are lightweight and modern, and the modified cat eye shape is quite unique. I don't have acase for them but will pack them carefully for shipping.

5-3/4" across front
1-3/4" lens height, each eye measured center lens
5-1/2" arm length, front to back
4" from front of frame to beginning of ear bend on arm

Condition: New old stock, never used, never worn. No scratches, no marks, no blemishes

Shipping basics: I can ship worldwide to most locales (not all) so ask. Also I can discount and combine shipping for multiple items. Just ask. More info on shipping below.

About me: I am a NY based photo prop stylist for magazines like Real Simple, Instyle, Seventeen, and a few others, plus I’m a well versed shopping powerhouse for props for my photo shoots (some, you will find, oftentimes end up here on Etsy). I really enjoy finding cool stuff, and the result is what I consider a finely curated collection of vintage clothing, fashion and home accessories, and mid century odds and ends---with fair and affordable pricing. I like good stuff.

On the whole I’m an easy to approach seller, and if you love something but can’t afford it and wish I would discount it for you I probably will. That said, I majorly frown on low-ball offers for items that are clearly well-priced, so do us both a favor and don’t go there. My pricing is fair and Im told super cheap in comparison to like items in other shops or on Ebay. I am interested in making money, yes, but I tell you I get more of a charge out of finding appreciative homes and closets for my amazing things. The real deal is that I have a really skilled eye for lovely items, and I have more than I can handle and need to clear out my storage bins.

On quality: When I shop I do so carefully, and only select items of a certain quality and design dignity. I really like crafting a nicely balanced shop with things for most body shapes and sizes, and I take great care in how each item compliments other items in my shop. I only list things I feel are of a high quality, but if I find an amazing dress thatis damaged or needs some love, I have it listed because I know there is someone out there who wants it---even with blemishes or repair needs. I've found Etsy to be the perfect place for me to sell that sort of thing. So the message is: there’s no junk here, just well a well culled group of neat vintage stuff from home goods to fashion.

I dutifully detail all measurements, blemishes, and details I feel are necessary in the listing, and welcome additional info about a designer or item from shoppers. In my travels I come across amazing vintage clothing in the spirit of Betty Draper and Joan Holloway from Mad Men--great silhouettes and styles that are hand made, dressmaker patterned, or tailor made by home makers in the 50s and 60s. When I come across major designer labels like Chanel or Dior I scoop them up, and again with damaged clothing of a certain quality I know there is someone out there with a mending kit and some moxie that wants them. That said, most of what I like to sell is in clean and ready to go condition.

Shipping: I can ship worldwide (though not everywhere) so convo me for inquiries about countries not listed. As a rule I try to ship Priority Mail when possible to insure that shipments arrive safely and have some sort of trafficking number. I can ship any way you like, though. For international shipments I can send via USPS International First Class depending on the weight of the package, and that is usually a less expensive route. When I am in town I generally ship same day as purchase or within 2 or 3 days. If I am out of town for extended periods of time I put my shop on hold, so if it’s up online I’m probably in town.
