Get Starry-Eyed At This Pasadena Antique Eyewear Shop

OldFocals3
So, you have a major sweet tooth for vintage eye candy, and have made it your life’s mission to locate frames à la Michael Caine, The Alfie Years. Fantastic. We know just the place to find those '60s readers! Enter Pasadena’s most under-the-radar, spec-tacular shopping destinations, Old Focals, tucked away on Green Street.
The low-key eyewear shop—with a shanty green door and neon postscript—carries an uber-impressive inventory (priced between $69 and $149) of new and antique glasses from the '50s to the '90s. Oh, and…the store just happens to be frame-whisperer to the cast of Mad Men. A potential Jon Hamm sighting? Right. We’ll have to open up a binocular shop across the street…
Old Focals, 45 West Green Street (at Delacey Avenue); 626-793-7073.
