    Hi guys. Sorry I haven't posted my intro sooner. My name is Vanessa. I've been hooked on Juliets for roughly 12/13 years.

    How did this come to be? To shorten a crazy story..

    I took them in the divorce! My ex bought himself Romeo, Penny and Juliets. I remember the day I found them and saw the prices. I was upset that at no time did he offer me a pair. As the marriage deteriorated, I decided I wanted those glasses. ALL OF THEM. So, I simply took them and hid them in the air duct system! At the time, I had no idea they'd be retired or collectible. I didn't grab the boxes but I dig grab all lenses and rubbers. This was 2003.

    It was quite comical to watch him go through his things searching for them, cussing. I never admitted I took them. He never admitted to buying them.

    Under normal circumstances, I would never do this to someone. My ex was a violent individual. Long story short, justice was served.

    As time went on, bills came due and the Romeo were the first to go at $450. Later, the Penny's settled my daycare debt of $600. I held on to those Juliets- Plasma Fire Iridium. Times were hard and that's the one luxury item I never parted with. The nosebridge stayed loose for years. It finally got so bad and stuffing paper in there no longer worked I just stored them away- for 6 years.

    One day after times were good again, I pulled out the Juliets. I decided I wanted to fix them and get new lenses since mine couldn't see my hand in front of my face. I headed off to an oakley store having NO clue they'd long retired and were collectors items. The clerk got very excited about my frames. Too excited in fact. He offered me $200. These things were flopping from eye to eye. I declined and asked for them to be repaired and that's when he told me- unless oakley in cali does it, "you're SOL". I sent them in and got the only lenses left, BIP. Before I knew it, I wound up here and now I got Tha feva'
    Cheers
