My brother John, has been into mid-century modern before mid-century modern was cool. Like, way back in the late 1980’s/early 1990’s. It’s true. The home he recently purchased is quite retro as well. When I saw this phone at our school’s rummage sale in October, I pounced on it knowing that it would be perfect for him. Then in December, I found the pepper mill at a local thrift store. These two items along with a couple of vintage books from our childhood and a retro decorating color wheel were Priority mailed to him on Saturday. I was just a couple of days late from his b-day on the 20th. He texted me this picture this evening. I guess that means he likes his gift.
