From The Desk Of Dr. Shapiro: Heart Glasses

Heart Glasses are usually a big seller for Valentine's day, BUT NOT AT VINTAGE FRAMES COMPANY! It is very common to find heart glasses at novelty shops. The actual vintage ones were made of horn! Genuine horn products and hold a much large value in dollars then the ones most people wear. The history of heart glasses goes a little something like this. It was originally made in the 1960's as part of a peace love type movement. It graduated into 1970's culture with Disco styles in an anything goes type manner. The 1980's came around and people wanted to reminisce of the 1960's. In the 1990's they became sort of a novelty costume idea. In today's modern society they are being seen on the likes of Lindsay Lohan trying to be fab in a hotel room in LA! Thoughts?
