Great finds at the flea market
« on: October 13, 2018, 06:04:28 PM »
Had a great day at the flea market last Sunday, got some great telephones real cheap, the 2 best are a 1937 302 with vents for $20 and a A&E jukebox wall telephone for $20, I wish everyday was like this.

Your $15.00 302 w/E-1 is a great find as well. It is just as relevant as the 1937.

You should select 1 for the find of the month.

Hey Doug, thanks, I was in Hollis, very similar to Todd's, but smaller, Todd's is only 15 minutes away from me, Hollis takes about 45 minutes. It was definitely worth the trip.
I usually find one good telephone in a trip, I was pleasantly surprised with the haul.
