If you are like me and require a second set of eyes to avoid walking into walls, then you understand the value of a good set of specs. Vintage 50s Eyewear is an Etsy shop where you can find unique and one-of-a-kind styles to match your one-of-a-kind-personality at a low cost (they should pay me to come up with shit like this). Here is a small sample of my favourites:

Vintage 50s Slate Blue Horn Rim Cat Eye Eyeglasses Frame Never Worn $78

Vintage 50s 60s Tura Cat Eye Eyeglasses Frame (SOLD)

Vintage 50s Tortoise Cat Eye Eyeglasses Frame With Valentine Heart Accents 64$

Rare Vintage Cat Eye Christian Dior Blue Eyeglasses Frame 139$

A few weeks ago when back in the valley for a little R&R, a girlfriend and I decided to lose our auction virginity and hit up an estate auction in Cobden, Ontario. It was here that I found two vintage Pyrex mixing bowls in red and blue. I was familiar with the Pyrex name through my mother and grandmother’s trust in this long-standing brand and knew that the bowls would stand the test of time as well as brighten up my kitchen ware.

My new-found love for auctioning combined with Etsy obsession helped me locate the missing yellow and green bowls to form my now completed, primary-coloured collection. I should give credit to Donkee House, an Etsy shop that sells vintage home decor, housewares and kitchen supplies. Donkee House, based out of Queens NY shipped my bowls up to Canada in little time with much care.

I can’t wait to clean out (yes, with my fingers) cookie dough out of these bright coloured addition to my growing vintage collection of kitchen ware.

Yellow and Green goodness.

Too bad I didn't buy these in 1940... could have saved a few bucks.They might be too pretty to make messes with...
