Best Vintage Eyewear 

Optik Birmingham; 245 W. Maple Rd., Birmingham; 248-646-6699;

No mere optical boutique, Dr. Joe Ales’ Optik Birmingham boasts unique collections of never-worn vintage eyewear from the 1890s to the 1980s, as well as exclusive contemporary eyewear. You won’t find this stuff at the mall. The store’s hip accessories and funky art objects only add to Optik Birmingham’s appeal. No wonder such celebrities as David Bowie, Lenny Kravitz and Bette Midler have sought Dr. Joe’s glasses when passing through town.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
