Hello from Northern Ontario
« on: May 28, 2016, 04:22:30 PM »
I realized I didn't make an introduction thread. I started collecting a few years ago, picking up a few at yard sales, ebay, etc. over time. I mostly prefer to collect Northern Electric stuff. I don't have the best setup at the moment to display my stuff but I have most of them out save for my grandmothers Ivory 3554 and a Push-to-talk Canadian National Railways Wood Wall phone. I already got a ton of help fixing my forget-me-not blue AE Starlite from you guys, so im glad to be here!

Hello from your neighbour to the West. Where are you in Ontario? My Dad has a cabin near Minaki(in the Reddit subdivision near Kenora, if you're not familiar with stuff THAT far North!)

I still don't have any phones, but come across many wooden or rotary phones here in Winnipeg almost weekly. Not for sale, just in customers homes. Some have interesting stories, most are just passed down from family.

I'm out in the Sudbury area, I have lots of family out towards Kenora though!
