    Thought it might be interesting for people to list some sites they may know where you can find either good stuff cheap or cool and interesting stuff for sale.

    I'll start with a place where I was able to find some Costa polarized sunglasses that were generally around $200 in retail stores for $109. It's called Joma Shop and it's been around for a while and is very reputable. They also sell some pretty pricy watches and a few other things too. The watches are usually 2-3 thousand less that you can find anywhere else but I don't get buying a watch for the price of a car. I just go there for the glasses.

    My wife has several for women stuff (clothes, shoes, etc, etc). I'm not going to post that crap.

    I'll flip through the ebay deals sections a few times a week. This is their marketplace section like a Amazon. There can be some shockingly good deals in there.

          A deal a day, sometimes you can get really high end stuff for cheap.

          Yes, my wife and I both have used Zenni Optical to get spare pairs of glasses, and inexpensive sunglasses. We have progressive lenses, which are fairly complex, and haven't had any problems with the glasses we've received from them.

          Zenni is cheap, and the burden is on you for everything except if Zenni makes an error on the prescription strength. Once you hit submit, you're obligated to accept the glasses as ordered.

            My daughter does and likes it. She says it’s easy to return if you don’t like them. I’ll ask her the name and get back.

            Costco is way cheaper than anything in the Luxotica monopoly.

            As an ophthalmologist who owned an optical, I could get glasses at wholesale (less than half of discounted retail). I could never get really comfortable with progressives despite the attempts of several really good opticians. I tried Zenni several years ago and was amazed at how comfortable I was with them. Although I got one of their more expensive frames they still fall apart after a few years. I've had several pair from Zenni and have been very happy. My last pair was progressives, high index, transitions, and coating would have retailed for close to $1000. I paid around $250. I'm pretty sure everyone is not as satisfied as I was.
