I’ve been wearing and shopping for glasses ever since I could read. I discovered an optical shop in the Mission that has hands-down the best inventory of vintage, classic, modern eyeglasses and sunglasses. Hundreds and hundreds of pairs in all designs in multiple colors.
Fine Arts Optical at 888 Valencia near 20th
The company has been around for a while, but recently opened a location in the Mission. You’ll pay a pretty penny, but these glasses are works of art that you can sport on your face. Seriously fashionable glasses! I could have spent all day in the store; I wanted to buy several pairs.
Check it out. Best spectacle store ever!
