History Of The Vintage Sunglasses Shop Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

Our HIstory & Mission
Based in Pawleys Island and Charleston, SC and founded by former professional musician, Wall Street trader, tech entrepreneur, and global capital markets executive Bill Cline, the Vintage Sunglasses Shop is the world's largest vintage sunglasses store selling only rare and authentic vintage designer sunglasses, serving collectors and vintage fashion aficionados with our unique and eclectic selections since 1998. You'll find iconic vintage designer sunglasses from the 1940s - 1990s for men and women that meet our rigorous condition and authenticity standards - don't be fooled by fakes, reproductions, or condition misrepresentations and no return policies that are all too common in auction markets.
The Best Styles & Brands
We focus on styles and brands that we feel represent the best designs and optical innovations in the latter half of the 20th century. After 1998, most major brands of designer sunglasses came under the control of a single large corporation, and resulting declines in quality and research spending meant that the choice and diversity of fine sunglasses was never the same again. At the Vintage Sunglasses Shop, we source quality inventory from all over the world to preserve your ability to buy the finest vintage sunglasses and eyewear from the world's leading brands.
We're Here To Help
If you have questions about any of our items or just want some recommendations to help you decide on the perfect vintage sunglasses for you, our staff is ready to assist. You can contact us with any questions you may have, and you can send us your picture and information about yourself if you'd like us to make some recommendations of vintage sunglasses that best suit your face and your lifestyle.
