354s look nice! Are any of the 302s metal? Maybe interested in something.

The list is slow going. I am not in trouble for taking over the table, I have been helping with homework and bedtimes.

I will probably change tactics and start documenting/ photo the phones that people are mentioning.

It looks like tommorrow for the details.
I am holding off on exploring the white 5302 for now.

I haven't bought much in the way of phones in awhile, if you could PM me with some prices on what you want to get rid of, I'd really appreciate it!

I posted an ad for some of the phones in the classifieds. 

The " Sometimes" phones are for sale

Details lead the ad.
Please note the ad will run on the listservers, but forum members get $3.00 Large  flat-rate priority shipping
{since there are now 300 forum members}

I hope all of you in the Forum who purchased some of these beauties will post pictures of the finished product(s). Its great to see so many phone freed from decades in a dark, dusty box. Show them off for us to see. This is a really great thing that Jim has done for us....Doug

D/P you should shush.
As far as telephones go I am at MY top of Maslo's "Heirarchy of needs"

Regarding my lifestyle:
Karma my good man, Karma. (Have you seen, "My name is Earl")
I tossed a 1950 housing and handset to Karma and she gave me a 50+ collection of phones. These included a white 5302 and a war shartage B-1 ( I didn't mention that yet).

D/P You have had good Karma with your your D# set, It makes me wonder about your good deeds. I suspect you are a closet good-deed-doer. JMO


*Karma aka "reap what you sow", Do until others" living life fair, ect.
Good Karma to all,
Jim

Update to this topic:
 I went to a yard sell at this home a couple years ago. I bought a damaged clear WE 2500 set for $1.00.

As far as this Board goes. Tell your tales. What is your KILLER DEAL?

Only current deals will be considered for voting (if we decide to vote).
