Welcome to itsie's bitsies, home of the ONLY and ORIGINAL 2-in-1 Convertible Bubble Skirt, the 2-in-1 and 4-in-1 Convertible Skirt/Dress (copyright itsie's bisies), and the FIRST and ORIGINAL Matryoshka (and heart, Frida Kahlo, tattoo, etc.) PLUSH Keychains and Ornaments. All Original Designs copyright itsie's bitsies.


Time to sell a few pairs of my vintage eyeglass collection! This is very very difficult for me - I love my babies - and hope I don't change my mind! But I've got so many... some I wear; some, like these, sit in my display case on my dresser where I lovingly gaze at them everyday. I am dying to wear these, but my vintage eyeglass collection is out of control, and transitions lenses are not cheap, otherwise I would be wearing these!

These ARE my absolute favourites! I'm convinced they are the only ones in the world! Haven't been able to track down another pair in 20 years!

Heavenly shade of pink that I've never run into... very warm rich shade of dusty-peachy-rosy-angelskin-dream-infused pink. Its just the perfect pink. Not cutesy, not too bright, not too pale, just so incredibly perfect and artsy. Because the frames are so chunky, the color modulates from paler to richer, just so gorgeous. Photo 3 captures the rich color the best.

:: please convo me for additional photos - I have many.

These are a take on the round windsor style - but with a twist - they are hexagons-within-hexagons! So painfully hip! So mod, so artsy, so fabulous!!! Be prepared to stand out in these unique artsy frames!

Inside the two arms is written the following:

My optician said larger, rounder frames are making a comeback for 2011, so I'm selling these at a great time!

With ho-hum dime-a-dozen frames costing an average of $200-600.00, these are an economical alternative, and a great way of standing out in unique one-of-a-kind frames!

These are in perfect, mint, NOS condition!
Will be mailed in a hard case for protection.

* Please note my model's head is narrower than the average adult's head, so these appear larger than they actually are. Please go by the measurements.

5 1/2" across the front with hugely protuding sides, but hinge to hinge would be:
5" hinge to hinge across the front;
3/4" bridge at top;
2" lens height and width;
5 1/4" arm length.

No returns, so please convo for additional photos or measurements.

These must be sent insured and with tracking of course! so will be sent expedited with tracking, which typically takes about 10 days within Canada and to the U.S.+

* SHIPPING : Yes! I love to combine shipping! Please ignore the "amount if shipped with another item" below, and convo me for a combined shipping quote either before purchase, or I will refund all overpaid shipping if you prefer to make multiple purchases first.

* SHIPPING 2 : Amounts below are estimates, and are for the cheapest/slowest service - SURFACE: 1-3 weeks to the U.S,+; 4-9 weeks overseas; 3 days within Canada. Please convo me for Air shipping. We are not lucky enough to have media mail here in Canada like you do in the U.S., so we can't send as cheaply :( If you have overpaid shipping, I will refund for $1.00 or more overpayment. If shipping is more than stated, no need to pay up.
+ To the U.S. or overseas, customs does random checks of packages; if your package happend to be randomly stopped, it may take up to 5 weeks for this to reach you!!! Sorry, but nothing to do with me! Thanks!

Thanks for visiting my shop! More items added regularly!
