Hi from England
« on: October 23, 2019, 07:50:54 AM »
Hi Everone,

My name is Andy and I live near Northampton, which is pretty much in the middle of England.

I've been a member of this forum for a while now, but today is the first time I've posted.

I've tended to mostly post in the groups on Facebook until now, I know there are lots of people who don't do facebook, but I find it very useful for my many hobbies.

I guess I've been collecting phones for around 25 years, but certainly more so in the last 5 years or so since i joined our THG

I have a large collection of probably nearly 1000 phones, most of them are on display in my bedroom, which is not really a bedroom, but a phone room with a bed in it!

It looks like there's an awful lot of reading to do in this forum

I look forward to reading all about your collections

Andy

Welcome.

1000 phones?  :o 
We need photos!  :)   Start a new thread in ‘My Telephone Collection’ (Collector’s Corner). We would love to see your collection and your display.

Lots to read here, remember to use the handy ‘search’ field (above). Enjoy!

Here's a photo, though it's an old one. You can see the bed in front of the window  :)

WOW, Now that's a lot of phones in one room!  :o

Is that a chrome 3 slot I see?

Yes it's a chrome 3-slot, it looks nice, but it's a bit of a bitsa or a frankenphone :-)

Here are a few random shots from the past

I'm currently re-arranging my displays to fit more in

I hope I can add more than one photo at a time

You take 'how many phones can I squeeze into one room' to a whole new level - you have them hanging from the ceiling too!  ;D   (Better than Toby Jugs any day)!!!

*You can add up to six photos per post.
Give your collection photos their own thread (as per my reply above) so we can all find them easily in the future.  :)
