What are the chances???
« on: June 28, 2010, 10:29:18 PM »
Did someone buy this phone from eBay recently?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120585395179

The seller eBay handle is duz493ny

See picture below ...

Well, two years ago, I bought the phone on the second picture, from the SAME seller!!! (as they used to say in an old TV show: Believe it or not)

He may have found some rich ole' vicorian mansion that was color coordinated and they removed all their  moss green phones around the same time.......... I was aware of this auction, but it got too rich for my blood @ the end.

The magic dust arrived. Once you get a pristine Mediterranean Blue 500 with a mushroom lamp, and a curly gray cord for $40, any other phone over $100 seems excessively pricey!  ;) ;D ;D ;D

I confess--the straight handset cord was too much temptation!! :D :D  It arrived today.

Stephen:

Someone from the forum showed me the listing last night and mentioned that probably you had won the auction. The picture reminded me of one I bought two years ago. I checked in my photo archives (I save the web pages of everything I buy from ebay) and Bingo! Same seller.  :o :o :o My comment last night was: "So it is true, lightning may hit the same spot twice."

Please, post some pictures. Perhaps we can converse on them when yours is ready.
