Think vintage shopping and you’ll probably imagine riffling through jumble sales or downloading the latest app.

However, vintage fans in Sheffield had the chance to indulge their ethical shopping habits in their eyewear after a pop-up shop came to the city last week.

Retro Spectacle, based in Wakefield, uses previously worn frames with new lenses to have a more eco-friendly approach to fashion.

Some frames date as far back as the 1960s, contributing to the broad vintage collection of the business.

Emily Charlotte, owner of Retro Spectacle, said: “We work with a lot of film companies and stylists providing eyewear for productions.

“Many of our pieces have been worn by A list celebrities!”

Emily is a qualified dispensing optician so Retro Spectacle can fit prescription lenses in any chosen frame. 

As well as prescription glasses, they also offer vintage sunglasses, clothing and jewellery. 

Emily said: “Now we stock in wholesale because opticians want to have more sustainable and eco-friendly brands in practice as well.”

Sheffield is familiar with the sustainable fashion industry, with many vintage shops dotted around the city. 

Retro Spectacle have travelled around the UK, with pop up shops in big cities like London and Leeds, and attending vintage festivals.
