Spectacular Shop: Brilmuseum Amsterdam


Unlike other museums, Amsterdam's Brilmuseum lets you buy the exhibits.  All pairs of specs, up to a century old, have never rested on another's nose.  I love the T.J. Eckleburg-esque eyes on the website (see above).

Very cool. As soon as I opened your page and saw the eyeballs, I was thinking Dr. TJ Eckleberg also.

I have been there several times; such a great place ... they supplied the eyewear for Bertolucci's "The Last Emperor" ...
