|Japan kitschy cats - salt and pepper shakers|
Sheesh - these are little cutie cat salt and pepper shakers. Complete with glitzy poofs on their heads.
Vintage when, do you suppose? 50's? 60's? 70's?
|Bell System aqua blue rotary phone|
THIS has to be one of the most fun finds of late! And it works!!
Everyone responds to it with such delight.
And oh! the stories that get triggered by it!
From dangling the handset to untangle the cord,
to tricks played with taping down the hook, or removing the mouthpiece.
My daughter had never tried out a rotary dial before -
the slowness made her appreciate speed dialing modern gizmos.
That COLOR! Ooo - delightful.
My recollection is that you didn't own your phone, but rented it from the phone company.
And to get anything other than beige or black cost extra!
It's made to last - heavy duty metal parts inside.
Condition is fairly good. slight yellowing of the plastic in places, and replacement parts have color-aged at a different rate. One crack on the front (how many times has this phone hit the floor in its decades of use?) the clear rotary dial isn't perfect either.
I'm tempted to keep it.
Heck - its a hurricane supply, right?
If we lose power we need an old style phone for communications.
Thanks for stopping by!
