Allen Ginsberg, Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon, Jean-Paul Sartre … What they do have in common? All of these elegant ladies and gents wore glasses – and oh my, they wore them with style!
After years of refusing to wear my prescription glasses – mainly because they were ugly in my opinion – I finally decided to get new ones and found the perfect pair at Saffeels’.
Besides carefully selected vintage dresses, the shop owner Sandy Saffeels has unique glasses, some of them even dating back to the 1930s, for sale. Always on the hunt for the most rare and exquisite types of glasses, she finds them on her journeys around Europe and the USA – and since most of them come from inventories and warehouse stocks, they have been never worn and are in an excellent condition. The Saffeels’ staff is very friendly and will you with experience and advice – especially since picking glasses can be a tricky affair.
Feeling like you suddenly want to smoke a pipe, mix an Old Fashioned and listen to The Ventures whenever you put your new vintage glasses on? Yeah, me too!
