Love it! The phone is awesome, came just as described. Shipping was quick and the seller even left a cute note inside. Thank you!

Wow, wow, wow. I hesitated about buying this but I am SO glad I took the plunge. For about the price of a bag of groceries that's eaten and forgotten, I have a beautiful - and I do mean beautiful - piece that makes me smile every time I see it. And it works! Pleasure overload! Everybody should have a thing or two that makes them happy when they see it. For me, it's my old lab, a handmade rug, and this little heavy duty princess. Plus my family, of course. :) super fast and careful shipping, too. Better than described. Thanks so very much!

About

Nostalgia

Technology is amazing!

But...as much as I love my touch screen cell phone, I find myself as much amazed with the simple features and bold character of rotary phones. The weight of the receiver, the quality of sound, the inability to "drop a call" after waiting 20 minutes to talk to a human, the clickity sound of the dial and of course, that rrrring! The bold and beautiful colors are all just icing on the cake.

While, like many people out there, I grew up with a rotary wall phone in my home, it had been a good 20 years since I'd touched or seen one. Everything has long since been sleek, black, and wireless. Fine for me, hard on my elderly mom who suffers from Alzheimer's and is no friend to any modern technology. I decided to get her an "old fashioned" dial phone to see if that was more to her liking. She loved it! And surprisingly, so did I. It was almost as fascinating to me as any new Android-iPhone-beam-me-up-Scotty technology I'd seen. But more than anything, I cant get past how beautiful they are. But then, Im not really trying.

Welcome to the Rotary Shoppe!

Most of my shop is filled with beautiful, vintage rotary phones. I will also include some other random treasures I come by along the way. Hats, clothes, hand-made decor, etc.

Keep an eye on my shop by favoriting it please! Treasuries are *always* appreciated!

PayPal is my preferred method of payment, although Im happy to now accept Direct Checkout as well. If you pay with PayPal, and mention this in the notes when checking out, I will refund you 5% of your item price (before shipping)!! What? Free money back? YES!

If you need to pay another way, just send me an convo/email and I'll see if we can work it out.
Shipping
I can/will ship internationally, but the cost is quite a bit more due to the weight of the phones. Please email me before you purchase so I can get you an estimated price for shipping.

Most shipments to Canada are approx. $32.00.

Refunds and Exchanges
All items are final sale, non-returnable, unless otherwise stated. My items are vintage and *not new*. Please expect items in used condition with character here and there. I always welcome an email if there is any problem and am eager to make things right as best as I can.

If you prefer a different shipping method than I have listed, please let me know before you purchase so i can get you an updated total. Im happy to do that!
Additional policies and FAQs
Please understand when buying vintage items that they are NOT NEW and therefore likely to have replacement parts, wear, signs of being several decades old and used.

If there is something in particular you would like, as in extra pictures or maybe a video of the insides to make sure the parts are what you are expecting PLEASE EMAIL ME AND ASK ME. **I am more than happy to do that for you**, but you need to ask first. I cant anticipate what people are specifically looking for.

Thanks, everybody. You are so very appreciated!!
