Featured Seller: Poppycock Vintage

with one comment

The only thing we here at This Week’s Look adore more than vintage hats is a vintage hat sale. Poppycock Vintage on etsy is currently testing our post-holiday spending willpower with a fantastic sale through December 31. They have an incredible selection of vintage chapeaux, so reasonably priced, we may have no choice but to pawn all of the Christmas presents we received in order to buy them all.

This week, we have assembled for you a selection of our favorites from Poppycock’s etsy storefront, all on sale right now. Click on each image below to see the individual listing, and follow Poppycock on Facebook for regular sale announcements.

Featured Seller: Vintage Eyewear

Warby Parker has done a lot for people that are both visually impaired and into vintage style. And their flat fee pricing (only $95 a pair) is quite revolutionary in the vision correction biz.  However, if you prefer authentic vintage frames as opposed to vintage-inspired frames, you can spend hours combing through junk on eBay and etsy or you can visit one of our favorite sources for optical quality vintage frames, Thayer Eyewear.

Thayer specializes in carefully curated 1950s cat eye glasses, 1960s squared zyl, rhinestone and embellished frames, high quality American and European frames from the 1800s to the 1990s, as well as dead stock ready-to-wear sunglasses. While some of Thayer’s stock is used, they also carry tons of dead stock/never worn frames, many of which are priced under $100.

Below are some of our favorite vintage frames as seen on Thayer Eyewear’s etsy storefront this week. Click on each image below to see the individual listing.
