Make a Spectacle of Yourself
I scored an impeccable pair of vintage Missoni sunglasses this week, but first I had to wade through an online sea of new old stock/dead stock (vintage, never used), gently used and vintage knock-off sunglasses on eBay and etsy.
As you can imagine, there’s a lot of junk out there.
