Crosley 1950's Style Payphone is an In-Home Payphone

Home Payphone: Love It or Leave It?

The last time I had to use a payphone, it was because my phone errantly died (I sincerely hope that's what happens to Carrie Bradshaw here) and I was supposed to meet my boyfriend somewhere.

I remember being grossed out by all the germs of a shared phone, and got none of the nostalgia of being a teenager and using a payphone to call my mom to come pick me up from the mall. This Crosley 1950's Style Payphone returns all that nostalgia with none of the Purell — it goes in your home, and though quarters aren't required to use it, the coin slot works and the money gets deposited in the back of the phone — like a piggy bank!

On the other hand, vintage style aside, this could be gauche in the wrong setting. What's your take?

i'm sort of torn. i don't have a phone hooked up now because i never call anyone(apart from my mom/brother every 2 weeks). somehow this is strangely appealing, though. i like the "piggy bank" aspect of it a lot!

"when I was younger I always wanted to have a secret passage in my house" Didn't we all...I still do!

I think it's interesting, it really depends on the setting. Some of my cousins bought a house in Chicago and in their basement they literally have an old pay phone with a booth (I'd say it's from the 1960's), BUT what's awesome is, is that the booth is actually a secret passage into a back area where there was a bar and underground gambling occured because there were spaces in the wall for where slot machines could go and lots of match books and ash trays with names of it on their. When I first saw it, I thought "this is awesome" because when I was younger I always wanted to have a secret passage in my house :)

I adore this! I've seen pay phone's as wall decorations, but one that actually works is absolute darling!

I think it'd be neat as long as I didn't actually have to put money in it for it to work in my own home O.O
