Remember when - there was no voice mail, doctor's made house calls, and cell phones were bigger than a brick? Times have really changed, but sometimes it's not always for the better. Occasionally it's almost therapeutic to move at a slower pace. Try maybe dropping a post card in the mail, instead of pressing send. Or maybe baking a pie from scratch versus throwing something in the micro. How about this - actually dialing an old, original antique telephone opposed to pressing a friend's and family button. Give it a try - the future of the past is looking a little brighter!!

Antique telephones are an easy way to create nostalgic ambience. Antique telephones were made with heavy duty components like bakelite handsets. When you hold one of our antique telephones in your hands, you feel as if you are holding on to something substantial. Products of the past were constructed with a keen eye towards quality. The antique telephones that we have weren't built to last six months and then be thrown away, they were built to last a lifetime, hence the fact that they are still available for you to enjoy. A telephone that you purchase in this day and age is more than likely constructed out of a thin easily breakable plastic. One slip of the wrist and you could drop it from the table or wall, making for an additional trip to the store to replace it or try the ever attractive duct tape remedy. Many of the telephones of yesterday were made out of bakelite. A thicker more expensive cast material, that, as you can see stands the test of time much better. In an antique advertisement it was touted as being practically indestructible, and was an ideal material for receiver shells and mouthpieces. It will not discolor, crack, or warp and is not affected by heat or moisture, is light in weight and will not burn. Plus it said a whole lot more, we just don't have the room to flaunt the wonders of this marvelous material. Bakelite was used for such things as old fashioned antique radios, cameras, lighting, electric guitars, and even jewelry. The list goes on and on. No wonder their are so many astonishing antique finds that are constructed of it. Things were built to last. Buy things that are meant to last and not contribute to a society that's disposable. Why didn't we think of that sooner, or at least not let it be forgotten from our past accomplishments.
We are afraid, or perhaps maybe pleasantly surprised that our antique telephones don't have an option of different ring tones. Nope, sorry about that, but you will just have to get used to a wonderful full bodied ringing sound. It definitely sounds different than the modern land line telephones of today. It's kind of like being in an old film noir movie - Sunset Blvd, Double Indemnity, you know what we mean. Those oldies really are classics to be treasured - just like these antique telephones. Their are even people that just collect old antique telephones. Hey why not start you collection today? Give us a call on your telephone and you can be on your way to a happy calling experience of yesterday. One call, that's all. It we don't catch you on the other end, leave us a voice mail and we will get back to you!
One last note, today we had to take the teenager to the cell phone store - again. Really, we did! She stepped on her cell phone last night and it broke into two pieces. The flip phone was not flipping anymore. This was the fourth time that she has had to have her cell phone replaced in three years and she pays the bill for her telephone and the minutes herself. Somehow we just don't think that there will be too many of these contraptions handed out to future generations. Give a teenager a history lesson today and purchase a quality made antique telephone. You'll be glad you did!
