(Whispers) So I have an obsession (other than The Walking Dead ). It’s frames, square frames, cat eyes, aviators, circle frames, retro’s I love them all. Thankfully I don’t need to where glasses to see or drive so I simply use them for style purposes. I’m not balling (Well not yet, because Romans 4:17 (KJV) tells us to “calleth those things which be not as though they were”) So I’m not at that stage of my life where I can go out and purchase a pair of Tom Ford’s or Versace’s without taking out a loan and selling my momma’s tv. With that being said I utilized God’s gift of online wholesale shopping sites like Amazon and Ebay to find these frames. I’ve never paid more than $20 (that’s including shipping and handling) for any pair of my frames. Both Amazon and Ebay accounts are both free to join so you can browse and or create an account any time you like. If you’re constantly on the run just go ahead and download Amazon/ Ebay’s free apps onto your phone and or tablet to save time.
The biggest question I receive from people compliment my glasses is “What do you search in order to get your frames?” Honestly, trial and error, the first time“circle retro frames” and began to flip through and the rest is history. Now Amazon an Ebay like most websites will automatically track your searched items and provide you with more suggestions. Let’s say you want some black square frames go to the search box and input “retro square frames black.” To branch out and find a more daring look type in “cat eye frame pink” and tell me what you see. A keyword to use when you begin searching for frames are “retro” and “vintage” because a lot these frames are from the 70’s, 80’s etc. so using these keywords will help hook you onto more options.
A word to the wise, always check to see where the frames are being shipped from: U.S or outside of the U.S. I’ve have noticed that some of cheaper frames are sometimes shipped from China, Japan etc. Listen honeyface, if you’re willing to wait a few weeks in order to save a couple duckets then by all means jump on it. Frames are a great way to show your personality without opening your mouth and WOW them your new frame of mind.
