Feelin’ shady? Or perhaps not shady enough? If so, head over to the Guns and Shades pop up shop in San Fran to pick up some vintage sunglasses (read: no one else is gonna have a pair quite like yours). The temporary boutique will feature retro frames from Mayfourteenth, a freshly-launched eyewear brand from famed photographer Benjamin Belsky, and will feature an assortment of dead stock vintage frames that include a rare pair of Cazal shades (remember those ones that your fave hip hop stars rocked in the 80s?) priced at $1,200.

Guns and Shades Pop-Up Shop

When: Open daily from 12-8 p.m. through July 14, 2010

Where: 252 Fillmore St., SF.

If you’re lucky, you might be able to cop a pair reminiscent of the iconic 80s photography of SampleSaleShop.com‘s good friend and neighbor Janette Beckman:
