I don't know if I feel comfortable in trusting a pair I bought off Ebay. Where is a good place to get some without spending a whole lot of money? I'd only need 2 or 3 pairs. Thanks.

I saw some at one of the grocery stores (Harris Teeter or Publix). I think just about everyone is selling them.

Got ours from Amazon. Make sure they are CE and ISO Certified for direct sun viewing.

Thank Native , I went to the Visitors Bureau and got 4 pairs of glasses for the Eclipse. I appreciate it!
I went to the one at Tanger Outlet. There are 3 locations, one downtown, one Mt. Pleasant, and one North Charleston at Tanger.

Try local hardware store. In Mt P, Low Country Ace Hardware on US17, next to Bojangles, had a sign up yesterday that they had restocked the glasses.
