sunny day post: allyn scura glasses

Now that the sun has finally come out for more than a few hours I can post about one of my favorite sunglasses finds, Allyn Scura’s vintage frames at the Alameda flea market. Scott Iseyama, co-owner of Allyn Scura, is there every month with hundreds of frames from the 18th century to the 1980s at a variety of pricepoints. Most of them don’t have lenses but he’ll put them in for you and mail them 2 days later or you can take them to any optometrist. I paid $25 for a non-prescription tint at the optometrist near my office. Scott’s stand is always buzzing with people and I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them go to the flea market just for his glasses.
