Giveaway #9 - 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Bonanza - A Retro Phone


I adore Red Candy. It's an online store that loves all things red for your home. Admittedly this phone isn't red, but nearly everything in their store is. Like this phone there are some items in clear or silver to compliment all the red. Such a unique idea for a shop.

I just couldn't resist when I saw this retro phone from the 1930s, brought bang up to date by Wild & Wolf. It's a lovely old-fashioned phone with push buttons instead of the traditional dial and it's great fun. I've really enjoyed using it. It has a vintage sounding ring which I love, in fact when anyone new is in the house, I ring my own phone just so they can hear it ringing. I'm getting a lot of bemused looks, but I bet you will feel the same if you win on of these phones. The earpiece has a good weight to it, which is satisfying to use and it just plugs into a normal socket. 

Go on, you have to enter!

  15. Oh, wow - I've actually been looking for one of these, at least from the 50's, if not the 40's.
