Telephone accessories

When we say phone accessories in the vintage context, we mean handset holders and phone list finders, not mobile phone cases or screen protectors 🙂 Those born in the seventies and earlier will probably have used these before. The handset holder plays the theme from Romeo & Juliet  when activated. Lovely!

Musical instruments of my childhood

When I was in primary school, I had to choose one of two instruments to learn – the recorder or the pianica. Well, I’m glad (and my parents too I bet) that it wasn’t the cello or the tuba. Because I’m hopeless at any musical instrument! If you too, have fond memories of playing these two curriculum-mandated instruments (from Yamaha too!), take a walk down memory lane and check them out in the shop now.



We also have harmonicas, but no we weren’t required to learn these 🙂

Dial My Number

You can develop patience with these phones, as you have to wait for the dial to return to the original position before dialling the next number. But we think patience is a real underrated virtue =)

All phones are in working condition.
