Worn once - unfortunately, the frames don't fit my face as well as I thought they did at the dealers.

They've sat around my closet for a couple years and it's time for them to go.

Perfect condition - lens and frame in like-new condition. The lenses are Clearwater Copper polarized.

Currently retailing online for $145 - 150.

Don't even have a clue what to ask, so the best offer in the next week takes 'em!

$45. + shipping... I hear $50?:confused:

Sorry Pete; $50 plus shipping and they arn't even Rx. Figured one of the boys might want them as a Christmas present. Do I hear $55...... J.D.

I would now have to CRUSH your bid with one of my own counter bids...
but...considering the parties concerned (Doogues'Inc) and the fact that I've already got a fresh LostRiver at the ready, I shall show restraint and mercy and wish you good luck, prosperity, and a "hope-to-see-you-in-a-deer-blind-in-November-if-not-sooner" adios... :D

The records of the Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth show no such corporate entity as Doogues'Inc. Consequently, the ruling is: Penguin is the generous donator of a proxy bid to Big Jim (Dad)

:hehe: :smokin:

4.0 D.Fix... That P.G. is a generous guy. Course why a grown man needs 11 pairs of custom designer shades is beyond me. 12 would have put him in the running with that Elton John fella. Can't wait to see his ensemble this coming deer season. BTTT; do we hear $55 plus shipping........

$55 + shipping.!

Thanks to all who participated!

Well be happy that I started things rolling with my little bid and comment:

"I will pay $25.

$20 for the glasses and $5 for shipping.


My trophy wife told me to back off the bidding while she found all of my fishing glasses. Then, she found a pair that she took and is now using for driving and walking.

Going once, Going twice, do I hear $60+ shipping. Yesssssss. Lets see where that takes us. Not a bad idea(or is it) to make this a regular gambit with a percentage going to support the forums.. Lets see, $60+ shipping+ Lasik surgery. Expensive glasses.

08-20-2003, 09:59 AM
Hmmm - I think glasses + shipping + contacts would be cheaper!:devil:

It appears Dad bid $60 - if so, contact me at and I'll arrange shipping to you, get you my snail mail address, etc.

Gracias amigos,
