Find Of The Month - March 2011
« on: March 04, 2011, 07:03:22 PM »
I nominate  fellow Dan-aka Stop the machine --for his 1955 WE500 with original straight neutral gray cords and original (I believe) ivory wall cord. Nice find for $75 (with a princess and a green 500 added to boot!)

Here's the link to the thread on stopthemachine's $75 "Buy it Now" Red 500 with gray handset cord (and bonus phones).

Thank you for the nomination!  I hope to clean it, polish it, and take some pix Sunday.  It really is a beauty.

I nominate John S's yellow soft plastic 554 from 11 and 12-56. A very nice deal for $20 off Craigslist and a drive through picturesque Indiana. Here is the link to the post about it...

Where do we vote?

Nominations end after the last day of each month and then the poll will be added to the thread. The poll isn't there yet becasue more "Finds of the Month" can be added right until the 31'st. One of the moderators will add posts to this thread several times reminding people to return and vote for their favorite "Find of the Month".

The end of the month is getting close so get your nominations in!

Okay, Polls are open for March 2011's Find of the Month. The nominees each have good odds this month as there are only three entrants. Good luck to each of you!

The poll is set to not show you the results until you have placed your vote.

Well it looks like Kenny has won the "Find of the Month" for March 2011. It was a close contest this month but I think this was the first time that Kenny has won after several good telephone finds. Correct me if I am wrong.

Congrats Kenny and everyone keep finding those deals on phones (or at least tip me off where to look and I'll try to find them).

Thanks for voting everyone, this month we had 26 votes which might be a record number.
