Retro Spectacle has a passion for providing our customers with high quality vintage and retro glasses. As we are also opticians we can provide any prescription lenses for any purpose – such as distance, reading, sunglasses etc.
Our vintage frame selection covers a range of vintage and retro designer brands and also the sought after NHS collection, covering the 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Original vintage glasses were made to the highest quality, many of which were made in Britain by master craftsmen. If we know the origin of the frame we will state it in the product description.
You wouldn’t wear uncomfortable ill fitting unfashionable shoes, so why compromise with your glasses. We attend a number of vintage fairs throughout the year, giving customers the opportunity to see our collection in the flesh.
Retro Spectacle is not for the faint hearted. We provide exciting eyewear with a vintage twist. All our spectacles are expertly sourced and our team are always on hand to help should you require any guidance.
The Dungeon was open between 1964 and 1968, playing soul, Motown, jazz, blues, r&b featuring live bands and artists from America and the UK, such as Little Stevie Wonder, Wilson Pickett, Inez & Charlie Foxx, the Who, Small Faces, Steam Packet and many more. This is both a website and blogsite containing listings and information about those who played there, the music played and the people who went – who were they? What clothes did they wear? Where did they buy the clothes? Where are they now? An attempt to define and document everything about those times.
