Hello, world, friends, family, followers!
Some of you may know us from Etsy or Ebay. However, this is the first, and premiere opportunity we have to introduce our very own e-com shop the Sunglass Museum. We'd like to have a moment to re-cap with you who we are, and what we love to do. However, what we love to do is who we are.
So our story goes like this...two cousins, one sales person and one photographer, found a lot of vintage, deadstock (NOS) sunglasses that we thought were cool, quirky, interesting, beautiful and nostalgic. We actually could not believe it ourselves. We started wearing and giving them to our friends then photographing them and selling them on Etsy and eBay.
Almost 10,000 sales all over the globe as far as Australia and exotic as Kazakhstan, and numerous wholesale orders we have accumulated a following of people who love to shop at the Sunglass Museum and browse its' extraordinary collection of vintage eyewear from the 70s, 80s and 90s. With over 1,200 5 star reviews we know we have found a worthy new devotion.
We have something for everyone!
Our enormous eyewear collection has tons of vintage styles for men and women and keeps growing as we add more to our "museum".
For the on-trend folks out there, please go to our 90s Steampunk collection. Here you'll find our most unusual and rare finds where punk, grunge, Victorian, goth and industrial metal and acetate frames will take you back to the future.
If you're in favor of the more tailored, classic, prepster look head over to our classic collection of retro 40s, 50s, and 60s sunglasses. Here you'll find thick, rich, acetate frames like what you'd see the Kennedys, James Dean or Steve McQueen wearing.
If you have a weakness for Aviators check out our collection of amazing square, round, and teardrop Aviator sunglasses in all sizes and eras. FYI, we've personally measured every single sunglass to help you buy the best fit.
The Sunglass Museum also has an impressive collection of rare 80s oversized women's Jackie O and butterfly sunglasses with beautiful soft gradient lenses and a ton of cat-eye sunglasses in a great range of shapes and lush colors. And, if you're looking for the iconic Kurt Cobain unisex sunglass from the 90s look no more.
You can try anything on and find what suits you the best and keep only what you like, as long as you make your return within 30 days. See our return policy here.
We ship Monday-Saturday following postal service holidays. Please contact us for wholesales orders or for general customers service anytime. Our response time is fast during our hours or operation Monday-Saturday from 9-6pm. We're a small business and our customers always come first.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Understanding sunglass measurements
The metric system is the standard measuring system used when measuring sunglasses. The measurements are always listed in millimeters (mm). When shopping at the Sunglass Museum you will see a measurement of each style listed in its description in a series of 3 numbers like this 54/18/145.
The first number is always for the eye size and is measured horizontally from the outside edge to the inside edge of one lens. The second number is always for the distance between the lenses and is the bridge/nose size. Lastly, the third number always represents the temple or arm length of the sunglasses.
