Not As Nice As Your Bubbeh's Glasses


Today at one of our local consignment shops I found a bag containing five pairs of vintage 50's era bubbeh glasses! The lenses in these are disorientingly thick with bifocals and in some cases a jaundice-yellow tint, but these can easily be popped out by your favorite optometrist. I'll be keeping the flashiest pair (3 photos in the top row) for my own self as I like to look good when I am reading in bed at night.

I heart the other black ones. Do they fit fat heads?

Sadly, no they are really small - they barely fit my pea sized head. Why did olde tyme ladies have smaller everythings?
