Michelle’s Etsy pics of the week – vintage sunglasses

I love 1930s sunglasses and I have 3 pairs of the acetate round type with various coloured tinted lenses and celluloid frames. They are stylish, classic and great for everyday wear and really do make a vintage ensemble complete. My nana had a white pair (like the ones below) with green lenses that I adored when I was little and I wish I had been able to get hold of and keep them as an adult, but they disappeared when I was a teenager. Anyhoo…I’m always looking for more, so here are range of 30s, 50s and 50s shades that I found on Etsy for sale.

  1. Hello! Am wondering if you can help.. I’m looking for a pair of authentic looking 1930s sunglasses (fairly cheap!) for a college fashion show in edinburgh. Have tried Amazon, Ebay and Etsy and no luck so far!

    Do you know of anywhere that might do them? Do you have any for sale yourself?

    Thanks very much for your time,
    MC X

  2. Hi,

    I have a lot of vintage pairs but I also have quite a few repro ones. In the late 1990s, that rounded tortoise shell style came back into fashion and I have found all mine repro ones in thrift stores sunglasses bins for about $2.I have found some cheap vintage ones on both ebay and etsy. Guess it’s juts a case of being there at the right time.

    But rounded or oval framed tortoise shell style glasses from the 90s will pass as 30s looking 🙂
