I don’t collect them, other than those I have bought to wear over the years. But, I’m sure somewhere there are spectacle collectors, especially for vintage cat’s eye glasses. They are fairly unique and decorative looking.

I noticed these today. I was actually looking for glasses to help with reading the computer screen. Not for glare. Reading glasses won’t do either. I tried a few generic glasses at the pharmacy, they are made for people with positive strength vision. I don’t remember my exact numbers, but they are in the negative, meaning I am near sighted/ short sighted. Reading glasses don’t help. My current glasses don’t help much either. I read the computer screen with my head tipped way back so I can use the bifocals to read the screen. Not helpful and my neck gets stiff. Probably good exercise for my chin and neck. But, frustrating.
Even the buttons look like trilliums. It’s a size 2X. Selling for less than $100 (counting the shipping) from a shop on Etsy.
But, I really don’t need another coat. Plus, 2X probably wouldn’t fit, a bit too tight. What a treasure for someone else to find though.
This is a top quality, thick, cosy and warm faux mink coat, jet black. The coat fastens with 5 pretty floral buttons, and each wide sleeve has a half belt a couple inches from the end, decorated with a smaller matching button. The coat is lined with glossy black satin and is in pristine condition.
It is a good idea. An option for people who don’t want to wear contact lenses on their eyeball but don’t like the frames of eyeglasses on their face either. Still, I feel squicked at the idea of having my face (other than ear lobes) pierced. So, as good as it could be for some people… I won’t be trading in my eyeglasses, with frames.

I found this frame listed on the LensCrafter website. I’m so fed up with the eyeglasses I bought at a little shop in town, the nose piece keeps breaking and I can’t see any better because the frame keeps getting loose, or something. I had a blue frame ages ago, so that is a big selling feature with this one.
