Clearly not many people have the time or inclination to rotate through their local thrift stores on a regular basis. And certainly not many will bother with stores that they usually leave empty handed, but once in a while it pays to check in. This week after doing a quick scan of the usual I took a peak under the the glass counter. Usually there a few tin bracelets and mismatched earrings. But the large lenses caught my eye and when I asked to see them this is what I found:
One never knows if sunglasses (or anything else with a label) is genuine, but the tattered case made me hopeful. I checked the serial number at home and they are Gucci GG 2890/S 6XL/PT from 2011 – not vintage, not Alessandro Michele, but not bad for $1.50.
