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!
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.
My name is Karen. I live in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Im very drawn to the small touches in each home that add character and really let you know who lives there.
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!
