ARE THESE REALLY VINTAGE EYEGLASSES, OR KNOCK-OFFS?
Fifties Frames sells authentic vintage eyeglasses and never knock-offs.
WHERE DO YOU GET THE GLASSES YOU SELL HERE?
All the glasses frames that are sold on our site come from estate sales, private individuals and antique vendors.
YOU GIVE LOTS OF MEASUREMENTS, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY MEAN.
Fifties Frames gives more measurements than other sites. Most of our measurements are in inches, as that's what most Americans are familiar with. The frames are measures from all sides so that you can measure your own favorite eyeglasses and compare the measurements you get to the ones for the vintage frames.
Measure inside, across the front, from hinge to hinge
Measure outside, across the front, from widest point to widest point
Measure full temples from the hinge to the end that goes behind the ear
Compare measurements to your favorite current eyewear
Eye/bridge measurements look like this 44/20. That's the measurement across the lens at the wides point (corner to corner) and the measurement where your nose will fit. This measurement can usually be found on the inside of your frames in tiny print..
WHAT IF THEY DON'T FIT THE SHAPE OF MY FACE?
That happens to all of us. Even with all the extra care we take to chosing the "perfect" eyeglass frames, we are unhappy with the way they look on our face. In that instance, contact us and request to return. Please return within 10 days of you receiving the frames at your home to receive a total refund of their cost.
WHERE CAN I GET NEW LENSES INSTALLED IN VINTAGE FRAMES?
We use Costco, Pearle Vision and know some who have used Walmart. Most anywhere that sells eyeglasses can install new prescription lenses in your vintage frames.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY VINTAGE FRAMES?
We do our best to ship next business day. With priority mail shipping is takes 2-3 days for them to arrive at your door. We do add delivery confirmation.
ARE RETURNS GIVEN AS MONEY BACK OR EXCHANGE?
We will do either. All we ask is that you contact us within 5 days of the frames arriving at your home and request a return. At that time let us know if you are interested in an exchange or money back. All refunds with be completed when the frames arrive back to us.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SELLING VINTAGE EYEWEAR?
We started selling on eBay 5 years ago. Two years ago we began selling on our own website "Fifties Frames Vintage Eyeglasses" and discontinued auction sales. Here's our eBay feedback score: ( 1246) Positive Feedback 100%.
ARE THE PICTURES THE ACTUAL EYEGLASSES I WILL RECEIVE?
We do not photograph every pair of eyeglasses because so many of our frames are alike with only the size being different. The picture of your eyeglasses may or may not be your exact pair. The photo will be representative of your frames in style and color.
