Ad of the day, Pink swoonable wall phone, June 18, 12


When my current kitchen phone broke a few months ago I decided to try and get a vintage wall phone like this (pink would be Fab!) but so far I've had zero luck.


I heart this phone. 



In the 1940's Bell System ads promoted getting a phone, I suppose there were a lot of un-phoned households.  Towards the end of the 1950's and into the 60's the push was for an extension.  Most phone ads were geared towards woman even the old ones; keeping track of your traveling hubby, staying connected with relatives, things like that.

But in the 50's the focus changed to the convenience aspect of have more then one phone in your house.

And now I'd like to completely ditch the house phone! The only calls I get on that is sales pitches. UGH.
