    People have mentioned Four Your Eyes, but it appears they're out of business.

    There's one in Old Pasadena, on Green st in between Raymond and Fair Oaks that has a big stock. Don't know the name of the place even tho I walk by it every week

    The best dealer I know of is Allyn Scura in OC (Santa Ana iirc)....Scott from AS is really helpful and just a cool guy. Most of my friends (who all wear vintage eyewear if they need glasses) have been buying from Allyn Scura for years.

    The place in Pasadena is called "Old Focals". They have good stuff.

    You may want to try the Rose Bowl, PCC and the Pickwick Bowl Swapmeets, you'll find something there.

    I went to a very friendly place on Hollywood Blvd. It's close to the Jake vintage boutique and across the street from Confederacy. Nice selection and the prices weren't gonzo.

    You wouldn't happen to be affiliated with the shop you're spamming about would you?

    This one is probably the best one i've been to in the entire country, maybe the whole world even.
    It's two doors down from American Rag.

    I love how he bumped the thread replying to himself too.

    Business must not be so good.

    Yeah Old Focals is great. Prices are pretty reasonable too.
