A friend gave me a box and a bag full of old glasses for Christmas. He works for a theatre company behind the scenes and there was a prop room clear out - so Thanks Steve for nabbing all these for me! I realised alot of these styles don't turn up at charity shops much anymore. These have facets and flat bits like lenses. A few years ago when charity shops started raising their prices I thought it was ok as it's always for a good cause. More recently they all seem to censor the stuff and there's no junk - some of us were only drawn in by the box on the floor full of unsorted cheap dirty kitchenware! The prices have gone up again and I really don't like the ones that have barely any bric a brac except for a few ikea frames and some candlesticks priced at more than they cost new. I know all you flea marketeering bloggers will agree.
Anyway as someone who donates stuff to charity shops too I don't want to see it over-priced, it's supposed to be for those with less ready cash. Back to the glasses, they're so photogenic, I love the smokey silvery grey colour of the density so I couldn't resist a few family portraits.
