Whether you’re channeling Brigitte Bardot or Benjamin Franklin, there’s a pair of sunnies to fit your mood at this treasure trove, which carries more than 40,000 vintage specs unearthed at flea markets and from opticians’ dead stock ($40 to $3,000). Chests of drawers display antique frames dating as far back as the late 1800s, and are organized by style and era. If those pince-nez or aviator sunglasses are looking a bit too dated for your taste, the staff will happily reshape or bejewel them with Swarovski crystals. Fanny’s also vends such vintage items as ladies’ pillbox hats and suspenders for lads looking to channel the 1940s (or maybe just Larry King).
