WHAT WE SELL
The eyewear we offer for sale on Ebay is either restored or is new unsold stock. We take pride in the work we do in the preservation of old eyeglasses. We use our thirty-five years of experience to inspect every aspect of every frame - new or not.
The majority of the circulated frames we get have defects beyond repair and are rejected. The rest are taken apart, cleaned, sterilized, polished, and trued. They are then reassembled, using new screws, nose pads, temple covers and other parts as necessary. Finally, the frame is given a final cleaning and adjustment.
By the time we finish restoring a frame, it is as good as it can be.
"NEW OLD STOCK"
Even frames that have never been out of their original package can change over time. Pressure from other frames in the box and changes in temperature and humidity can cause shape changes, throwing the frame out of adjustment. Metal parts such as hinges can tarnish and become stiff. If a plastic frame has been stored for many decades, the plastic may dehydrate and contract or, in extreme cases, begin to deteriorate (and smell like vinegar).
So even with "New Old Stock", we careful inspect each frame and make sure it is solid and in original factory adjustment.
ALL OF THE ABOVE STEPS ALLOW US TO GUARANTEE THE USABILITY OF 99%+ OF THE FRAMES WE SELL. EVERYTHING WE DO IS GEARED TOWARD RETURNING CLASSIC, ANTIQUE, AND VINTAGE EYEWEAR TO ORIGINAL CONDITION AND DURABILITY.
