Why take a chance on eBay, when you can buy from my shop, or by mail order a fully guaranteed quality telephone, from a long established business, for a competitive price? All my converted telephones are guaranteed to work on a BT line.
I usually only sell restored telephones. But I do also have large stocks of telephones for sale that can be restored to order. All the telephones in this web site are in stock, but most will be waiting for restoration. It is always worth enquiring, if the telephone you are seeking cannot be seen on my pages.
Credit/Debit Cards are the preferred method of payment. I no longer accept cheques.
If you wish to place an order, or have an enquiry, please read all below.
Please call me (Gavin Payne) by telephone if you wish to place an order for a telephone, spare parts, or have an enquiry. I can usually be reached 9.00am to 5.45pm any day, including weekends. Calls in the evening are not appreciated and could make me very grumpy. The number is 01245 400601.
I am in the shop most Saturday and Sunday mornings between 10.00 and 12.00. These are the only times I am in the shop for the sale of spare parts, conversions and repairs. Conversions and repairs can often be carried out while you wait.
If you have a telephone that you want to know more about, or
repaired or converted, please have it right next to you when you call.
Please also have a selection of small flat bladed screwdrivers to hand.
